Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Remembering The Fallen Heroes Of 9/11 September 11, 2014
Randy Hultgren, R-IL
"Yesterday Congress bestowed the highest civilian honor, the Congressional Gold Medal, on the fallen heroes of 9/11. One of those was Todd Beamer, a high school friend of mine. Declaring, “Let’s roll,” he and the other brave Americans on Flight 93 helped prevent further catastrophe while sacrificing their own lives in the process."
Waters Of The United States Regulatory Overreach Protection Act Of 2014 September 11, 2014
Harold Rogers, R-KY
"Over the last five years, we have seen attempt after attempt to add layers of environmental red tape to any economic development that our states, counties, and cities may undertake. The new “Waters of the United States” proposal is no different. With this, the EPA seeks to gain jurisdiction over most of the country by claiming authority to regulate dry beds, ditches, pipes, farmland ponds and anywhere water could conceivably run. They would require local communities, businesses and individuals to navigate the costly and time-consuming process of obtaining additional permits for activities around these waters, making it harder to mine coal, to construct roads and shopping centers, and even to build homes. This is one of the largest federal power grabs we have ever witnessed in this country, and there is no question that the economic impact would be profound."
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed September 11, 2014
Lindsey Graham, R-SC
"I will make the same offer to President Obama that I made to President Bush: If you come up with a strategy that makes sense and you are understanding and learning from your mistakes, as I try to learn from mine, I will be there with you."
Americorps Program Anniversary September 11, 2014
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"National service has always been a passion of mine. When we started in the 1970s with the establishment of a domestic volunteer corps—similar to Peace Corps—I wanted to capture the fervor, the passion, and dynamic qualities of a social movement that would bring people to arms wielding change. At some point, it seemed we lost sight of what Alexis de Tocqueville called “habits of the heart”—neighbor helping neighbor. I wanted to help turn the ME generation into the WE generation."
Honoring Joe Schneider September 10, 2014
Tammy Duckworth, D-IL
"Mr. Speaker, today I want to tell the story of a constituent of mine whose life has exemplified the American Dream."
