Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Tribute To Senator Tom Harkin November 19, 2014
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"Now, I think anybody looking at that would say that is a remarkable and distinguished record of public service. After 40 years of representing Iowans in Congress, my friend Tom soon will leave behind the Halls of the U.S. Capitol. He also will leave behind a legacy of fiery floor speeches, passionately delivered on behalf of individuals with disabilities, also for Iowa farmers, also for the elderly, also for child laborers, and for many causes that he championed such as early childhood education, nutrition and wellness, conservation, renewable energy and the environment, and probably lots of others. But those are things everybody knows that he has worked hard on."

Approval Of The Keystone Xl Pipeline November 14, 2014
Fred Upton, R-MI
"Fast forward to today, and it’s deja vu all over again. More than three years after we passed that initial bill, we still don’t have a decision from the president on this critical jobs project despite widespread support from Democrats and Republicans, laborers, and job creators."
Keystone Xl Pipeline November 12, 2014
Mary Landrieu, D-LA
"I also want to put into the Record the 35-plus very powerful organizations that range from business to labor to manufacturers that have been a strong and powerful and vocal coalition for over 5 years in their efforts to bring us together. They have come together. The question is whether the Members of Congress will come together. These groups have come together. It is not often that you see the laborers, pipefitters, boilermakers, and builders and trades all together sitting down with the Chamber of Commerce and the American Petroleum Institute, but they managed to find common ground at a common table, and America will be best served when the Members of this body and the House do the same."
