Entry Title Date
Morning Business August 6, 2015
Jon Tester, D-MT
"Mr. President, I join my colleagues in wanting to fix the way we fund fire. We have to start using common sense and budget for catastrophic wildfires like we do for other natural disasters. Unfortunately, due to congressional inaction and growing costs associated with fighting wildfires, the Forest Service is increasingly turning into a firefighting agency. This means fewer resources for smart public land management. Montana’s National forests benefit our outdoor recreation economy, support timber jobs in rural communities, and preserve the drinking water that Montanans rely on. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to address both the issues of fire borrowing and the increasing costs of fighting fires. The Forest Service cannot continue to absorb these increasing costs without undermining other critical priorities, from timber harvest and research to conservation and recreation management. There is real bipartisan support for getting something done on this issue and I am confident a growing number of our colleagues will join us as we push forward this fall. "
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 5, 2015
Rob Portman, R-OH
"Mr. President, if I could, I want to report on something that happened this week. I see that the chair of the Finance Committee, Senator Hatch, is here, and he is aware of this. This week we had a bipartisan hearing of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations on an issue that is also urgent. It is one that is imminent because right now many U.S. companies are leaving our shores. This means that jobs and investments are leaving America and going to other countries. It is something all of us should be concerned about because it is rapidly accelerating. It is because of one simple reason: Washington, DC, refuses to reform our outdated and antiquated Tax Code. It is Washington’s fault. Unfortunately, the brunt of it is being borne by workers across our country."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"The facts are that these costly proposals are unfunded mandates designed to make it hard for Americans to find jobs or become employers and create jobs for millions of people working for a step up the economic ladder. What Americans need, rather than show votes, are more job opportunities, more flexibility at work, and the freedom to negotiate a schedule that works for them."
Additional Statements August 5, 2015
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"As this partnership continues to grow, so will the benefits for both of our countries and for New Jersey. The Indian American population in New Jersey has grown by 73 percent in the past decade, and many Indian Americans serve our state as industry and community leaders. New Jersey is the No. 1 benefactor of Indian investment in job creation, with approximately 9,278 jobs and over $1 billion in investment in a variety of sectors from telecom and technology to healthcare and manufacturing."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions August 5, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"I would like to begin with a hypothetical. Imagine a single mom with two kids and multiple part time jobs. She works long hours to provide for her family, but even then it is a struggle to pay the bills and keep food on the table. Reliable child care is extremely costly and out of reach. Because her work schedule changes week to week she is forced to leave her children unattended at times. Out of concern, a neighbor places a call to Child Protective Services, and a social worker then has to choose between two bad options—breaking up the family, or doing nothing at all to help them."
