Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015 February 4, 2016
Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"I will recount a few of the things we have done with that. We agreed to boost our Nation’s efforts to develop advanced nuclear technologies. This was a great amendment led by Senators Crapo, Whitehouse, Risch, Booker, Hatch, Kirk, and Durbin. We voiced our strong support for carbon capture and utilization storage technologies thanks to an idea from Senators Heitkamp, Capito, Booker, Whitehouse, Manchin, Blunt, and Franken. We have reaffirmed the need for consistent Federal policies that recognize the carbon neutrality of forest biomass. This was an effort that was championed by Senators Collins, Klobuchar, Ayotte, King, Franken, Daines, Crapo, and Risch."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015—Continued February 2, 2016
John Barrasso, R-WY
"This is a bipartisan amendment. I am delighted to be here with Senator Heitkamp, who is a cosponsor. This bipartisan amendment expedites the permitting of the gathering lines on Federal land and, subject to tribal consent, also on Indian lands. This is a commonsense solution that helps taxpayers, Indian Country, and our environment."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015—Continued January 27, 2016
Shelley Capito, R-WV
"Moving forward with improvements to our energy infrastructure will create construction jobs and economic opportunity in my State, where both are desperately needed. That is why I am pleased that this bill includes language that I introduced, along with Senators Heitkamp and Cassidy, that would address the fragmented and prolonged permitting process for pipelines. This provision will streamline the application process so pipelines can be constructed in a more timely and efficient manner and will meet our energy transportation needs, along with meeting the environmental requirements that we feel are proper in order to site the pipelines."
Federal Reserve Transparency Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed January 12, 2016
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"Mr. President, first, I echo the concerns of my colleagues here. It was extremely valuable to be able to travel with Senators Heitkamp, Kaine, and Coons as part of the eight-Member delegation to the IAEA, and meet with the individuals in charge of the inspections, as well as to go to Israel, and meet with Benjamin Netanyahu in a private setting about the concerns Senator Kaine articulated. In addition to that, we visited with other allies: Saudi Arabia, as well as Turkey."
Oil Export Ban December 17, 2015
Martin Heinrich, D-NM
"I thank again Senator Heitkamp. I just wish to say how important this is for the State of New Mexico, in part from the perspective that our economy has been incredibly challenged in the last few years. Coming out of the recessions, we have not seen the growth that many of our neighbors have seen."
