Entry Title Date
Neffenger Confirmation June 23, 2015
John Thune, R-SD
"Admiral Neffenger also served as Deputy National Incident Commander for the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. In that role, Admiral Neffenger coordinated and led over 50,000 people from Federal, State, and local agencies, tribal representatives, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector throughout five Gulf Coast States in the clean-up and response effort. Clearly, Admiral Neffenger has the requisite background and experience to lead reforms at the TSA."
Executive Session June 22, 2015
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"The nominee for TSA whom the Senator from Delaware just spoke about, Coast Guard VADM Peter Neffenger, has obviously had a distinguished career. His reputation precedes him, with 34 years in a variety of capacities. He has expertise in critical areas of crisis management and port security, which will serve him well as the head of TSA, and I believe the Senate will confirm him today. He was involved in that disastrous oilspill in the gulf. He was the national incident commander and he helped lead that emergency response. We are still seeing the results of that spill, those of us on the gulf coast, and that disaster required coordination between all levels of government and all of its agencies, as well as the management of people and technology. "
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 17, 2015
Roger Wicker, R-MS
"Let me for a brief few moments come home to my home State of Mississippi and say why people in my State feel so strongly about this. Of course, we have military bases from north to south in Mississippi. Our own Mississippians, as in all of our States, have stepped forward and are volunteering and serving capably. We also manufacture so many things in my State of Mississippi that are important for national security. We make unmanned aerial vehicles in Mississippi. Some of the finest ships in the world are made on the gulf coast of Mississippi. Helicopters, radars, and other electronic war technology, all of these are manufactured in my home State. So for people in Mississippi, I think the talk of this bill—these weeks on the floor—being a waste of time does not ring true."
Extend Florida’S Gulf Coast Oil Drilling Ban To Year 2027 June 4, 2015
Gwen Graham, D-FL
"Mr. Speaker, today I rise to speak in support of new legislation I am cosponsoring with my friend Congressman David Jolly to extend Florida’s Gulf Coast oil drilling ban to the year 2027."
Bradford-O’Keefe Funeral Homes June 4, 2015
Steven Palazzo, R-MS
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Bradford-O’Keefe Funeral Homes on the occasion of their 150th anniversary. This milestone marks the continued commitment to service that the O’Keefe family has provided the citizens of the Mississippi Gulf Coast for the past century and a half."
