Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Privileges Of The Floor February 4, 2016
Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that privileges of the floor be granted to Karen Dildei, effective today through March "
An Hour Of Power February 1, 2016
Joyce Beatty, D-OH
"Mr. Speaker, it is now my honor and privilege to yield to Congresswoman Karen Bass from the 37th District of California. It is a great honor for me because she is certainly not only a leader, but an advocate domestically and globally for young girls. As a matter of fact, when I think of her work across this Nation in foster care, I call her the Sojourner Truth of foster care."
Electrify Africa Act Of 2015 February 1, 2016
Christopher Smith, R-NJ
"I want to congratulate Chairman Royce on the Electrify Africa Act as a companion bill to the legislation that we have before us today. We held a hearing in my subcommittee that Karen Bass will remember well in November of 2014. The blessings that will accrue from a huge effort to electrify Africa are almost without limit, especially when it comes to health care and ensuring that students can have proper light to go to school and to study, particularly at night. All of the benefits that we take for granted in the United States and in other parts of the world still have yet to come to Africa."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015 January 27, 2016
Maria Cantwell, D-WA
"I think it is appropriate to thank our staffs. Usually that is done at the end of a process, but when we have had a bill on the floor for the first time since 2007, we should herald them in advance. Angela Becker-Dippmann, Colin Hayes, and I know Karen also played a big role in this, so I thank them."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Corps Of Engineers And The Environmental Protection Agency January 13, 2016
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"Our breweries cannot operate without a reliable, clean water supply. We strongly support the Clean Water Act, one of our nation’s bedrock environmental laws, as well as the Clean Water Rule, which provides important clarity regarding which waterbodies are covered by the Act. That is why we urge you to oppose Senate Joint Resolution 22, that would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from doing “a new rule that is substantially the same” as the Clean Water Rule. That could be read to prohibit EPA and the Army Corps from issuing any rule that establishes protections for waters that the Clean Water Rule protects, like lakes, streams, and wetlands. Our breweries—and the communities in which we operate— need a strong Clean Water Act, as well as the clarity provided by the Clean Water Rule.
