Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Medicare Access And Chip Reauthorization Act Of 2015 March 26, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"Another major component of this bipartisan compromise is the $7.2 billion in funding for community health centers. These centers serve some of our most needy citizens. These centers, in my home State of Maryland and throughout our country, provide essential health services for millions of underserved families. That is good for all of us."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 26, 2015
Rob Portman, R-OH
"Second, and this is very important, they become magnets for crime, for arson, and for other dangerous activities that put neighbors at risk. It puts first responders at risk. There are stories around the country. Unfortunately, in my home State of Ohio, some first responders, firefighters, have gone to a fire in an abandoned structure, actually been injured, and in one case lost their life. This is something neighbors feel strongly about."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 25, 2015
Jon Tester, D-MT
"Sequestration has had devastating effects nationally and in my home State of Nevada. Take, for instance, sequestration’s impact on our national forests. We have 17 million acres of national forest managed by the U.S. Forest Service. Under its current structure, the Forest Service uses the same pool of funds to manage our national forests that it does to fight wildfires. In bad fire years, suppression can use over 40 percent of the U.S. Forest Service’s budget. So it is no surprise that their budget is still in disarray 2 years after sequestration cuts $200 million during the hot, dry summer that saw millions of acres of trees burn across the West."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 24, 2015
Kelly Ayotte, R-NH
"We passed a bipartisan bill, one on which we all worked together, and I appreciate that Senator Sanders worked very hard on that bill. The Veterans Choice Program was part of that bipartisan bill, but this program has yet to be implemented in the way this body intended. The goal was to expedite care for veterans who had been waiting longer than 30 days or who live farther than 40 miles away from the VA hospital. In my home State of New Hampshire, we don’t have a full-service veterans hospital, so too often our veterans are driving long distances—to Massachusetts or to other locations—to get the care they earned for having served and sacrificed so much for our country."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 24, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Madam President, the Senate is going to spend much of this week debating the contours and the details of the Federal budget. Our colleagues are going to offer a variety of amendments, and we will undoubtedly cast a lot of votes. Those watching are going to hear speeches that are peppered with numbers and statistics. So I would like to start out the debate by setting aside, to the extent we can, this flood of numbers and statistics, and focus on what this means to working families in my home State of Oregon and across the country."
