American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act Of 2016 April 27, 2016
Kevin Brady, R-TX
"Think about the benefits of this bipartisan bill: tax cuts to American manufacturers; more jobs in our community, both retained and, in some cases, grown; lower costs for consumers and our businesses as well; Congress retains its strong constitutional powers over tariffs; and this bill complies fully with the current House earmark ban. That is a win-win for American consumers and our economy. It was achieved through bipartisan work."

Congratulating Sinclair Oil For 100 Years Of Success April 27, 2016
Jason Chaffetz, R-UT
"Mr. Speaker, I rise to congratulate Sinclair Oil for celebrating 100 years of success in the oil and gas industry. Headquartered in Utah, Sinclair Oil has served as a shining example of American excellence for a century. Harry Ford Sinclair was 25 when he lost his father’s drugstore in 1901 and began selling lumber for oil derricks. An incredibly savvy individual, Sinclair was soon buying and selling small oil leases, eventually attracting investors. Sinclair’s immediate success was remarkable, he became a millionaire by the age of 30 and founded the Sinclair Oil and Refining Corporation in 1916. The success of Sinclair Oil has stood the test of time and bolstered the United States economy. Sinclair saved hundreds of jobs during the Great Depression era by buying up dying competitors. During World War II, Sinclair’s oil supported the Allied effort, and Sinclair’s Dinoland exhibit was a highlight of the 1960s World’s Fair. In 1976, self-made legend Earl Holding acquired Sinclair Oil. Under Holding’s leadership, Sinclair Oil continued its growth as a beacon of American excellence. Holding’s work at Sinclair is revered for his commitment to the company’s culture and his incredible dedication to hard work. I look forward to the future of Sinclair Oil, as it continues to fuel the economy and provide jobs to hardworking Americans. I am proud to congratulate Sinclair Oil on achieving 100 years of success today. Sinclair’s accomplishments have not only been of great benefit to Utah, but to the United States. I thank CEO Ross Matthews, Earl Holding, and the Sinclair Oil family for their contributions."
Defend Trade Secrets Act Of 2016 April 27, 2016
Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY
"Whether it is the original recipe created by Colonel Sanders in connection with Kentucky Fried Chicken or whether it is the special sauce made famous by the iconic Big Mac of McDonald’s or whether it is Corning’s glass that is so frequently used and found in many of our smartphones all across the country, trade secrets are as American as baseball and apple pie. Unfortunately, we have found ourselves, over the last few years, in a situation where trade secret theft has become a significant problem, by some accounts costing us in excess of $300 billion per year and more than 2 million jobs annually."
