Entry Title Date
Introduction Of The Bridge To A Clean Energy Future Act September 19, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Mr. Speaker, today I am introducing legislation to support the continued development of clean energy in the United States. The impacts of a changing climate are far-reaching, representing a threat not only to our ecosystems but to our national security as well. To help avoid the worst effects of carbon pollution, consumers must have a dependable supply of energy that is clean and renewable. That much of this energy—and many of the devices used to produce it—is American-made means that our country retains the innovation, export opportunities, and manufacturing jobs that are so important to a twenty-first century economy."

The new facility will help El Rio serve an additional six thousand patients each year, as well as creating numerous new health care jobs and helping our local economy thrive."
A Day To Honor “Rosie The Riveter” September 19, 2014
Jared Huffman, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today, along with my friend and colleague George Miller, to honor the important contributions of women on the Home Front during World War II. During World War II, 6 million women entered the workforce nationwide, increasing the female percentage in the workforce from 27 percent to 37 percent. Women replaced men in many traditionally male jobs as men enlisted in active military service. They worked as riveters, welders, electricians, and draftsmen, among others. Working women during World War II set the stage for working women today. African American women overcame long-held policies of discrimination and made significant contributions to the war effort by working in the shipyards and in supporting the Home Front. Federal, state, and local public and private agencies coordinated efforts to develop child care programs for working mothers. Today, the image of “Rosie the Riveter” and the phrase “We Can Do It” have come to symbolize women’s empowerment. On October 24, 2000, the Rosie the Riveter-World War II Home Front National Historical Park Establishment Act of 2000 was enacted into law. As we approach the anniversary of that date, we ask that you take time on that day to honor the important contributions of women on the Home Front during World War II."
Recognizing The 50Th Anniversary Of The Land And Water Conservation Fund And The Wilderness Act Being Signed Into Law September 19, 2014
Michael Fitzpatrick, R-PA
"The parks, trails, forests, wildlife refuges, battlefields, historic sites, and working lands sustained by LWCF funding support an outdoor recreation and tourism sector that contributes a total of $1.06 trillion annually to the American economy. This program supports 9.4 million jobs that are vital to our nation’s recovery."
People’S Climate March September 19, 2014
Nydia Velázquez, D-NY
"From London to Rio to Johannesburg to New Dehli, people everywhere will speak with one collective voice in calling for environmental justice, an economy that works for people and the planet, clean air and good jobs. I urge all my colleagues to join in these collective actions and show their support for protecting our planet."
