Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 8, 2014
Peter Roskam, R-IL
"Springfield, Illinois, is a foreshadowing, Mr. Chairman, of what not to do. Basically, we need to look at the fiscal situation in Springfield, Illinois, and look at it like a big, big traffic signal that says, don’t come here; don’t go this route; don’t take this pathway. Instead, go another direction."
Legislative Session April 8, 2014
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Madam President, it is with a heavy heart that I rise today to speak about the tragic shooting last week at Fort Hood. The shooting claimed the lives of three innocent people. One was a son of Illinois, and 16 others were wounded."
Remembering The Rwandan Genocide April 8, 2014
Gregory Meeks, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, at this time, before I say more, I see the distinguished gentleman from the great State of Illinois and the city of Chicago, and I yield to the Honorable Danny Davis."
Celebrating The Rockford Rescue Mission’S 50Th Anniversary April 7, 2014
Adam Kinzinger, R-IL
"Mr. Speaker, it is an honor to rise today in celebration of the Rockford Rescue Mission, which is set to celebrate its 50th Anniversary this May. Mr. Ray Stewart rented a building in 1964 in downtown Rockford in order to establish the Rockford Rescue Mission. There was a sign on the door that read, “All are welcome here. The alcoholic, the addict, the stranger, the sojourner, the pilgrim, the poor. There is hope for all who enter here.” This important work continues fifty years later and I am proud of the service they have provided to many constituents in Illinois’ Sixteenth Congressional District. The Rockford Rescue Mission is open twenty-four hours a day, three hundred sixty-five days a year. They serve Rockford and the surrounding communities by providing prevention and recovery services for addiction, abuse, and destructive relations. They are also the primary provider for meals and shelter in northern Illinois and are able to provide these services with private donations from individuals, foundations, businesses, organizations, and churches. None of this would be possible without the tremendous help of the over 500 volunteers who contribute nearly 45,000 hours throughout the year. During the Rockford Rescue Mission’s 2013 fiscal year, they served over 160,000 meals, provided over 58,000 beds for lodging, distributed over 159,000 items, facilitated over 10,000 counseling sessions, and served over 2,500 clinic patients. The City of Rockford and surrounding communities can take pride in the Rockford Rescue Mission which gives back to the community so willingly. I would like to congratulate all the volunteers who have helped this organization over the past fifty years and I encourage them to continue their important service. Mr. Speaker, on behalf of Illinois’ Sixteenth District of Illinois, I wish to express our appreciation for Rockford Rescue Mission’s impressive service to the community and their diligent work."
Protecting Medicare Advantage April 3, 2014
Patrick Murphy, D-FL
"At this point, I would like to take a moment to yield to the general, Mr. Enyart from Illinois, and thank him for his leadership in fighting for seniors on behalf of Illinois and the rest of our country."
