Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act—Continued June 23, 2015
Joe Donnelly, D-IN
"Although we are a small business, this segment of our business is very important to us and provides excellent profitability and jobs here in Indiana as well as jobs for our contract manufacturers in Iowa, Illinois, and Ohio. All would suffer if we lost this business."
Affordable Care Act June 18, 2015
Tammy Baldwin, D-WI
"It is not only Wisconsin families who would be impacted by this devastation but also families in our neighboring States—neighboring States with Federal exchanges—such as Michigan, Illinois, and Iowa."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 17, 2015
Roger Wicker, R-MS
"Mr. President, I, too, would like to speak on this National Defense Authorization Act and observe that we just, I think, had a very important exchange between the distinguished chairman of the Armed Services Committee and the Senator from Illinois. They disagree on an amendment that will actually not be voted on, but I was struck by the remarks of the Senator from Illinois and would observe to my colleagues that he has made a compelling case in favor of the bill, which I appreciate, and in favor of the proposition that the President of the United States should, in fact, sign this bill. So I appreciate my colleague from Illinois pointing that out, and I hope people at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, and in the Oval Office even, are listening to this stirring defense of the legislation from the Senator from Illinois."
Congratulating Youthhope On Its 20Th Anniversary June 15, 2015
Cheri Bustos, D-IL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate YouthHope on its 20th anniversary. For two decades now, YouthHope has been a safe, educational, and fun environment for children and teens from the Illinois Quad-Cities. YouthHope is an excellent example of how a group of dedicated citizens can have an outsized impact on their community. As a mother, I appreciate how important it is to protect our children and provide them with positive role models, encouragement and avenues to success, the very elements that YouthHope has provided to our young people for the last twenty years. The staff, volunteers and everyone else involved at YouthHope should be truly proud of the impact that they have had on young people’s lives in the Quad-Cities. I hope that others in our community and throughout the entire state of Illinois and country will look to YouthHope as a model for strengthening and giving back to the areas in which we live."
