Entry Title Date
Congratulating Columbus, Ohio, On Winning The Smart City Challenge June 23, 2016
Rob Portman, R-OH
"It is easy to see why the right choice was to invest in Columbus. It is the fastest growing city in the Midwest in terms of jobs and in terms of population. It is one of the top seven centers in the country for foreign trade now."
Economic Growth June 23, 2016
Dan Sullivan, R-AK
"So that is one thing, GDP growth. Let’s talk about jobs. The American people are feeling what is happening with regard to jobs. Yes, the President likes to tout an unemployment rate that is going down. While that is true, the main reason the unemployment rate is going down is because the labor force participation rate is crashing. So most of the unemployment rate declines the President likes to talk about, his administration likes to talk about, have occurred because people have stopped looking for work. They have quit. They are done. They are so discouraged, they have just quit."
American Innovation And Competitiveness Act June 23, 2016
Gary Peters, D-MI
"We are also working to promote STEM education by providing resources to improve the participation of women and minorities in STEM fields. Fixing the underrepresentation of these groups is absolutely critical to American competitiveness in the 21st century. Our country is simply not producing enough qualified new graduates in STEM fields to meet workforce needs. In fact, some studies indicate that the United States must graduate 1 million more STEM professionals than are currently projected to fill the growing number of jobs over the next decade."
United States V. Texas Supreme Court Decision June 23, 2016
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"Well, again, let me remind you what the President did. On the issue before the Supreme Court, he not only said to 4 million adults that they will not be deported, he declared that they are able to work. He has given them work authorization when the laws of the United States don’t allow people illegally here to take jobs. Not only that, he gave them the right to Social Security. He gives them Social Security numbers. They will pay into Social Security and be able to get Social Security, Medicare, and other programs. Basically, he gave illegal persons established by the laws of the United States the ability to participate as American citizens on virtually every matter of importance. It is unacceptable."
Tribute To John Glenn And Recognizing The John Glenn Columbus International Airport June 23, 2016
Rob Portman, R-OH
"Port Columbus is one of the most important economic resources for Central Ohio. Port Columbus provides more than 33,000 jobs and has an annual economic output of $3.7 billion. Port Columbus serves nearly 6.8 million passengers each year. It is fitting that this important landmark be renamed to honor John Glenn, someone who has contributed so much to the aerospace and aviation industry."
