Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
The Importance Of Our Technical Colleges May 19, 2016
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"This Act provides individuals with the necessary academic and technical tools to succeed in this skills-based jobs market. We should support our career and technical colleges that improve the lives of many hardworking Americans."
Military Construction And Veterans Affairs And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017 May 19, 2016
Donald Norcross, D-NJ
"I have negotiated in my past life over 100 of these. Why? Because employers understand that this is to their benefit. There is a better cost ratio balance when they do a project labor agreement. They are public jobs, they are private jobs where nobody is mandating everything or anything."
National Infrastructure Week May 19, 2016
Robin Kelly, D-IL
"In the short term, investments in our national infrastructure create jobs. In the long term, they help communities grow and expand opportunity."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 19, 2016
Susan Collins, R-ME
"I am very pleased this bill funds the TIGER Grant Program at $525 million. This program has been extraordinarily popular and effective. It has funded projects in each and every State—projects that have led to job creation and economic development. When we think about it, at heart, much in this bill is about creating jobs and security for our fellow citizens. If you don’t have a place to live, it is very difficult to show up for work every day. If the infrastructure is crumbling, it is very difficult for a business to hire the employees who produce the products and get those products to market. The construction projects this bill will fund creates good-paying jobs. In many ways, I think of this as a jobs bill."
National Police Week May 19, 2016
Heidi Heitkamp, D-ND
"Thank you to all of our Nation’s law enforcement officers for the jobs you do every day. I want to especially thank the law enforcement officers in my home State of North Dakota. I believe they are the finest collection of officers in the Nation. They are out there working day and night to keep our families safe, and just as they do for us, I will keep fighting for them every day. This Nation, our State, and our local communities owe our law enforcement officers a continuing debt of gratitude for their selfless actions to meet their sworn duty to protect and serve."
