Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Marketplace Fairness Act November 19, 2014
Michael Enzi, R-WY
"This Congress, I’ve worked with Senator Durbin, Senator Alexander, who as I mentioned inserted the States rights approach to this issue that reduced the bill from about 35 pages down to about 9 pages, and Senator Heitkamp, who has been involved in the court case as all of these e-fairness challenges have progressed."
Child Care And Development Block Grant Of 2014—Resumed November 13, 2014
Mary Landrieu, D-LA
"Because of the advocacy yesterday when the Senator from West Virginia and the Senator from North Dakota, Senator Heitkamp—she has been a very strong and effective advocate. I wish to give a shout-out to both of my colleagues from West Virginia and North Dakota. They have been tireless in their effort to try and build a 60-vote margin."
Keystone Xl Pipeline November 12, 2014
Mary Landrieu, D-LA
"This is only to take 10 percent of North Dakota’s supply. North Dakota has become the leading supplier of oil and gas in the country. I wish to talk about North Dakota for 1 minute. I can’t do it justice, such as Senator Heitkamp can do it, but I heard her give this speech enough to be able to repeat it, and it is worth repeating."
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed— Continued September 18, 2014
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"We can provide better, more efficient services and friendlier services as well. We have 25 mail-processing centers in the country. I visited one of them with Senator Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota about 3 or 4 months ago. We visited this small mail-processing center in her beautiful State. We went into the back operating area of the mail-processing center, and there was a fellow there who was about 50 years old. He was lugging around these big boxes that somebody was mailing. He was carrying them around and trying to get them over to a barcode reader, and he was putting them in a huge pouch so they could be mailed."
H.R. 3043 And S. 1507 September 17, 2014
Jerry Moran, R-KS
"I wish to engage in a colloquy with the chairman of the Finance Committee, Senator Wyden, and with Senator Heitkamp, to clarify several questions that have arisen since H.R. 3043 and S. 1507 were introduced."
