Honoring The Recipients Of The 2016 Asian-American Chamber Of Commerce Excellence Awards June 21, 2016
Gerald Connolly, D-VA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize the Asian-American Chamber of Commerce and the recipients of the 2016 Excellence Awards. The Asian-American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) is dedicated to improving economic development opportunities for Asian Pacific American-owned businesses in the Washington, D.C., region. The 11th District of Virginia is blessed by its diversity. About 1 in 4 residents are foreign born and approximately 40 percent are minorities. Half of our foreign-born population emigrated from Asia, and more than 80,000 of our neighbors speak an Asian language at home. Northern Virginia has a robust international business community and is home to the largest concentration of minority-owned technology firms in the nation. The AACC and its members contribute greatly to our economic strength and stability; Asian-American businesses generate more than 52 percent of total revenues generated by all minority owned businesses in this region. In Fairfax County alone, 25,000 businesses are Asian-owned. These businesses generate approximately $9 billion in revenue and create 54,000 jobs. Each year, the AACC recognizes businesses and non-profits in the Asian American community for their outstanding contributions to the Metropolitan Washington community and economy. I am pleased to submit the names of the following individuals and organizations: Citizen of the Year Ruth Crout, Fred Plum Young Professional of the Year Frank Chin New Member of the Year Dave and Joanne Adams Laura Drain Member of the Year Shakha Agrawal Business of the Year Kyllo and Pattana Cox Non-Profit of the Year Youth for Tomorrow Epoch Times Asian Business Leader of the Year Grace Kim Jimmy Rhee Chairman’s Award Audrey Lustre Oanh Henry Mr. Speaker, I ask that my colleagues join me in congratulating the recipients of the 2016 Asian-American Chamber of Commerce Excellence Awards and in commending the Chamber for its work to support Asian and Pacific Islander owned businesses throughout our region."
Commerce, Justice, Science, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 June 21, 2016
Dan Sullivan, R-AK
"As you can see by the chart, it has been crashing under this President with his economic policies year after year. Hope has been declining for American workers ever since the President got into office. In fact, it has not been this low since the economic malaise years of President Jimmy Carter."
Recognizing Annie Miller’S Son’S Swamp & Marsh Tour June 13, 2016
David Vitter, R-LA
"Over the years, Annie Miller’s Swamp and Marsh Tours experienced major successes, and it wasn’t long before Annie and Eddie’s son Jimmy Bonvillain joined the family business. Upon Annie’s passing in 2004, Jimmy renamed the family business to Annie Miller’s Son’s Swamp & Marsh Tour and continues to welcome visitors year-round."
Memorial Day, National Defense Authorization Bill, And Foreign Policy June 6, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Our actions do speak louder than words, and right now our friends in the Middle East and around the world are losing faith in their relationship with the United States. This is simply a product of failed foreign policy under the Obama-Clinton leadership. I think it is telling that when former President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, was asked about President Obama’s policies on the world stage, he said, “I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than we did when he took over.” This is President Carter on President Obama’s foreign relations. He went on to go through a list of countries as examples of where, in his words, “the United States’ influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower now than it was six or seven years ago.” On that point, I agree with President Carter. The foreign policy of this administration is nothing to be proud of."
