Entry Title Date
Additional Statements August 5, 2014
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"Bob graduated in 1974 from Cornell University with a bachelor of science degree in natural resources and then received his master’s degree in planning and public administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. After Bob graduated from Syracuse, he began his career in public service with the Baltimore City Planning Department in 1976, eventually becoming the city’s assistant director for planning in 1986. Later, he served as the Maryland secretary of the environment. It was during his service in my home State of Maryland that I first had the opportunity to know and work with Bob, particularly as he worked on an issue near and dear to me—protecting the Chesapeake Bay."
Introduction Of A Resolution “Expressing The Sense That The United States Postal Service Shall Take All Appropriate Measures To Ensure The Continuation Of Door Delivery For All” August 1, 2014
Susan Davis, D-CA
"In my home state of California, residents in newly planned communities are already witnessing the end of traditional mail delivery."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4315, 21St Century Endangered Species Transparency Act July 29, 2014
Steve Daines, R-MT
"My home State of Montana is called the Treasure State, where we found settlers. In fact, my great-great-grandmother came out and homesteaded in Montana. They found productive ag lands. They found riches of minerals to sustain our industries among the many species that are important to our fishing and hunting heritage."
Highway And Transportation Funding Act Of 2014 July 29, 2014
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"Without this extension, the Federal highway trust fund will go bankrupt in a matter of weeks. What does this mean for my home State of Maryland? I am advised that MDOT will not meet its commitments. The Department would be unable to begin new projects. It would be forced to focus on safety and system preservation instead of putting shovels into the ground. Existing projects will slow down or stop. The State of Maryland would have to find bond or State revenues to pay existing contracts. Most importantly, over 9,000 construction jobs will be in jeopardy."
Safe Act Confidentiality And Privilege Enhancement Act July 29, 2014
Shelley Capito, R-WV
"The success of this registry has not gone unnoticed. Since April 2012, State regulators have been working with other financial services providers to use the NMLS as a platform for the licensing and registry of other financial services providers, like money service businesses, debt collectors, pawnbrokers, and check cashers. In fact, my home State of West Virginia is now using this platform for their money service businesses."
