Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 21, 2016
Amy Klobuchar, D-MN
"The fact that Prince was a proud native of my State came through in all of his music. He pioneered the Minneapolis sound—that mixture of funk, rock, and pop that emerged in the late 1970s and 1980s and influenced music for decades to come. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Janet Jackson, Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson, Justin Timberlake, The Weeknd, Beyonce—these are just some of the many artists who were influenced by that sound."
74Th Anniversary Of The Doolittle Raid April 14, 2016
John Thune, R-SD
"Following Japan’s deliberate attack on Naval Station Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the United States was looking for a way to retaliate and boost morale. General Henry Arnold, the chief of the Army Air Corps, and U.S. Navy ADM Ernest King, the Navy Chief of Operations, were tasked with organizing a raid on mainland Japan that would act as the United States’ return salvo. They needed an extraordinary airman and leader to execute the raid, and they found one in Army Air Corps Lieutenant Colonel James “Jimmy” Doolittle, a well-respected pilot who they believed could inspire his fellow airmen as they carried out this dangerous mission."
Tribute To Sherry Davich April 6, 2016
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"I met Sherry back when we were both admittedly younger, after she worked on Jimmy Carter’s Presidential campaign and I was running for the Florida House of Representatives. Sherry was finishing her bachelor’s degree at Florida State University and had an undeniable curiosity and a nose for politics. After Carter became President and I was in the Florida House, I convinced her to intern in our office, and the rest is history. Forty years—wow, that is real public service."
National Women’S History Month March 17, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"President Jimmy Carter announced for the first time that March 2-8, 1980, would be designated as National Women’s History Week. He urged libraries, schools, and community organizations to focus on leaders who struggled for equality: Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Lucy Stone, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cody Stanton, Harriet Tubman, and Alice Paul. In 1981, the cause gained further momentum when an unlikely partnership between then-Representative Barbara Mikulski and Senator Orrin Hatch cosponsored a congressional resolution for National Women’s History Week. And 6 short years later, National Women’s History Week became National Women’s History Month. And last November, Senator Mikulski was awarded the Nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in part for her work on equal pay for women—what an honor."
