Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Disapproval Of Epa Emission Standards Rule—Motion To Proceed June 20, 2012
Jon Kyl, R-AZ
"The NGS was constructed as part of a negotiated settlement with environmental interests that, at the time, preferred a coal-fired powerplant to a hydropower dam project in the Grand Canyon. It provides more than 90 percent of the pumping power for the Central Arizona Project, Arizona’s primary water delivery system. The plant and the coal mined to operate it play a vital role in the economies of the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe, not to mention the State as a whole. A study prepared by Arizona State University’s Seidman Institute concluded that the NGS and its associated mine will account for over $20 billion in gross State product—GSP—almost $680 million in adjusted State tax revenues, and more than 3,000 jobs."
Regarding The Package Of Trade Bills October 24, 2011
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"The Colombia FTA is also a win for the American economy. The benefits Colombia has enjoyed as a result of its membership among the GSP recipient countries has meant that it has had significant and one-sided access to the American market. This FTA balances that relationship so that now American companies enjoy the same access to Colombia’s growing economy that Colombia has enjoyed in the U.S. for decades."
Colombia Free Trade Agreement October 17, 2011
Tom Harkin, D-IA
"We have made some progress over the years by funding programs for the remediation of child laborers through our contribution to the ILO’s International Program for the Elimination of Child Labor, IPEC. In 2000, I successfully amended the Trade and Development Act with a provision directing that no trade benefits under the Generalized System of Preferences, GSP, be granted to any country that does not live up to its commitments to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. I required that the President submit a yearly report to Congress on the steps being taken by each GSP beneficiary country to carry out its commitments to end abusive and exploitative child labor."
Extending The Generalized System Of Preferences October 12, 2011
Lynn Jenkins, R-KS
"Three and a half trade deals that we have taken up today have bipartisan support, the three pending free trade agreements and the GSP extension within this bill. Both parties in both Chambers agree that these important trade pacts will grow our economy, create jobs, and make America more competitive in the global marketplace."
Extending The Generalized System Of Preferences October 11, 2011
Jim McDermott, D-WA
"Sometimes I ask myself if anybody on the Republican side ever had anything to do with a business. I’m not a businessman, but I know that the most important thing for a businessman or businesswoman is to be able to plan, to know that the program is going to be there and that you can quote a price to somebody because you know it will be there. But the GSP program, which has been important to a lot of our small businesses, has simply been unreliable because the Republican leadership couldn’t seem to figure out how to extend something that has been bipartisan for years."
