"Senators Murkowski, Heitkamp, and Udall understand the dire needs of Indian Country, which is why they have cosponsored my amendment.

They understand that we have to support economic development for tribes whenever we can."

These are amendments by Senators Hatch, McCain, Thune, Moran, Brown, Murphy, Kaine, Feinstein, Johnson, Leahy, Inhofe, Cornyn, Markey, Kirk, Cornyn, Durbin, Moran, Warner, Sullivan, Hirono, Hoeven, Heitkamp, Isakson, Murray, and Tester."

America’S Small Business Tax Relief Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed April 6, 2016
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Now, I have an amendment. The Senator from Kansas was talking about some of the uses and restrictions and the expansion of the use of the UAVs. We are talking about drones now. Drones sometimes have a bad reputation, and normally it is not well-founded. But there are some areas where there were restrictions in the use of drones, which we are—I have an amendment that will allow drones to be used in areas where it does make sense. I already have several Democratic supporters and cosponsors of this amendment, including Senator Whitehouse and Senator Heitkamp and Senator Booker, who are all very enthused about this."

I started to work on some of these backpage issues in conjunction with Senator McCain’s wife Cindy McCain, as well as with Senator Heitkamp. We took a trip to Mexico focusing on the trafficking going on across the border with that country."
