Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 12, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Mr. President, I am honored to represent the State of Illinois. It is a big State. From Chicago to Carroll at the southern tip of our State is 400 miles, and, of course, there is more State north of Chicago. I traveled the State over the last several months, and last week I went to the southern tip of the State, worked my way through, came back through central Illinois, and was in the city of Chicago. There is one recurring challenge I find all across the State: No matter what community I visit, I have learned that there is no town too small, no suburb too wealthy, no city that has escaped the opioid and heroin epidemic we are now facing. America is losing more people to heroin overdose than we are to traffic accidents. It has become that common."
Recognizing The 60Th Anniversary Of Lisle, Illinois May 11, 2016
Peter Roskam, R-IL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the incorporation of Lisle, Illinois. Lisle is a thriving and vibrant municipal and has built a friendly and welcoming community through its continued dedication to its residents and visitors. Since its founding in 1832, Lisle has become a center of culture and commerce within the Chicagoland area and has served as a home to families, businesses, professionals, churches and organizations. Its multitude of parks, including the beautiful Morton Arboretum, and youth and family friendly activities make it a superb place to work, live, and raise a family. On the occasion of this 60th Anniversary, we join together to celebrate Lisle’s legacy of growth and prosperity and to look ahead to the opportunities facing this great village. Mr. Speaker, please join me in recognizing the 60th anniversary of the incorporation of the Village of Lisle, Illinois, and wishing her residents a very successful year ahead."
