Entry Title Date
Recognizing The Tampa Bay Estuary Program October 8, 2015
Marco Rubio, R-FL
"Mr. President, today I recognize and commend the Tampa Bay Estuary Program and its historic milestone in exceeding a 23-year goal by restoring more than 40,000 acres of sea grass in Tampa Bay. This outstanding accomplishment represents the great collaborative work to restore one of the greatest treasures this Nation has to offer, Florida’s Gulf Coast. The improved estuary will have an immeasurable impact on the future of the State’s environment and economy."
Stop Sanctuary Policies And Protect Americans Act—Motion To Proceed October 8, 2015
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"On the east coast, the price of gas where I come from in Delaware—I said I bought gas last week at Wawa for $2.11. The average price up and down the east coast is about $2.17 a gallon, and that is down by over $1 from a year ago. In New England, the price is just about the same as the Northeast—$2.23 a gallon. The Central Atlantic is pretty much Virginia, Maryland, and maybe North Carolina and South Carolina. In the Central Atlantic, it is $2.22 a gallon. These are all down by over $1 a gallon from last year. The Lower Atlantic is pretty much the same. The Midwest is a little bit more. Gulf Coast States—down very close to $2 here. The gulf coast is down to $2.03 a gallon. That is down by roughly $1 from a year ago. Go out to the Rocky Mountain States—if you move farther to the West, prices go up a little bit. The Rocky Mountain States are $2.47, $2.48. That is down by $1. The west coast is about $2.79. That is almost $1. Finally, the Pacific Northeast is about $2.50, again, down by $1. So I would say prices are down by about a third across the country."

Commemorating The Centennial Anniversary Of Okaloosa County, Florida September 16, 2015
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"Okaloosa County is situated along Florida’s Gulf Coast and was established in 1915 through legislation sponsored by then-Florida State Representative William Mapoles from Laurel Hill. It is the 52nd county in Florida, flanked by Santa Rosa and Walton counties, and was carved out of portions of both counties. Sharing the namesake of a steamboat, “The Okaloosa,” meaning “Black Water” in Choctaw, Okaloosa County once consisted of small outposts and pioneers in Florida’s wilderness, and its main economic drivers at the time of its founding were lumber, turpentine, and fishing."
