Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions August 5, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Now in 2015, I see an opportunity for Congress to take a similar approach, but go even further. I believe that building child welfare policies around proactivity and flexibility will help a lot more families stay together and thrive. States have already shown that with waivers from the rigid Federal funding system, they’re able to turn smart ideas into meaningful results for kids and their families, There is a tremendous example that my home state of Oregon is currently putting in place. It’s called Differential Response. Differential Response, as I see it, is all about recognizing that every kid is different, and every family faces unique challenges. So Oregon’s system is approaching every case with the nuance it deserves."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
Martin Heinrich, D-NM
"When I was studying engineering at the University of Missouri, I worked at one of the largest research reactors in the country. I know what it is like to look down into that blue glow of a reactor pool. As a Senator from the State of New Mexico, I have seen firsthand many of the world’s centrifuges which are housed in my home State of New Mexico and dedicated to the peaceful production of energy."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Gary Peters, D-MI
"For example, take Mary, a 20-year-old student in my home State of Michigan, who went through her campus health center when she found a lump on her breast. They told her it was nothing and not to worry. When she visited Planned Parenthood a year later for an unrelated matter, the clinician expressed concern that the lump was still there. Through Planned Parenthood she got referred to a program for low-income women with breast cancer, and she received the treatment that she needed. Today, Mary is thankfully cancer free. Planned Parenthood provides upward of a half million breast cancer exams every year and can save the lives of women just like Mary across the Nation."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"Several places around the country and in my home State of Washington are working to address this at the local level. This Senator believes we need to bring the Washington State way here to Washington, DC. In Congress, I believe we need to act to give workers some much needed relief. We need to grow our economy from the middle out, not the top down, and we should make sure our country works for all Americans, not just the wealthiest few."
The Administration’S Clean Power Plan And Coal August 4, 2015
Steve Daines, R-MT
"At the same time, the J.E. Corette powerplant, in my home State of Montana in Billings, is being dismantled as we speak in the aftermath of President Obama’s previous anti-coal regulation. In addition to supporting 30 jobs, the Corette powerplant has powered tens of thousands of Montana homes and contributed several million dollars in tax revenue to Montana and Yellowstone County every year."
