Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 28, 2015
Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI
"Madam President, let me thank the Senator from Illinois and the Senator from Oklahoma for their efforts on the floor today. I think this continued progress toward a bipartisan 6-year deal to make sure our highways and bridges are funded and repaired is a very important piece of the work."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed July 23, 2015
Debbie Stabenow, D-MI
"I do want to indicate very clearly that for communities around this country, this is a big deal. This is certainly a big deal for Michigan, and I can’t in any way support any effort going forward unless this is fixed. It is a small amount of dollars in the larger scheme of funding this bill, and if it means that we fund the highway bill one less month rather than devastating communities such as Cleveland, Detroit, Flint, and cities in Illinois and South Carolina, Nevada, California, Kentucky, and across the country, then so be it. But I can’t be any part of something that takes a huge effort and stops it in its tracks when it is so important to rebuild."
Every Child Achieves Act Of 2015 July 16, 2015
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"Madam President, I would say through the Chair to the distinguished Senator from New York and the Senator from Illinois and the Republican Senators who are interested in this that the answer to Senator Schumer’s question is yes, that my commitment is to work—to keep the Senate decision in conference."
Honoring Don Newton July 16, 2015

"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of Don Newton, a proud 40-year member of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, Local 56, of West Chicago, Illinois—and a friend of mine—who passed away recently."
Medicare Independence At Home Medical Practice Demonstration Improvement Act Of 2015 July 15, 2015
Mike Thompson, D-CA
"I thank Mr. Roskam from Illinois and Mr. Burgess from Texas, the two folks who coauthored the House bill with me. I appreciate them and their staff for the great work they did."
