Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2017, Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act Of 2015, And Providing For Proceedings During The Period From February 15, 2016, Through February 22, 2016 February 11, 2016
Jared Polis, D-CO
"I was told by my staff person that zero constituents of mine have called or written in asking me to support this bill. Three have written in opposed to this bill. The rest of them—792,000 of them—don’t think we should be debating this bill. They haven’t opined on it, and they continue to grow disillusioned with a Congress that is debating for a day and a half how to best hide nutritional information from them rather than improve the quality of schools, make college more affordable, make sure that they can afford their mortgage, and do something about the fact that it is getting harder and harder to get by in our country every day."
Trade Facilitation And Trade Enforcement Act Of 2015—Conference Report February 11, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"On January 29, Illinois lost one of its most principled leaders and one of its finest public servants. He was a good friend of mine and a good friend of my wife’s as well."

Honoring The Memory Of Jim Trull February 4, 2016
Dan Newhouse, R-WA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise to honor the life of a respected constituent of mine whom I was proud to have called a dear friend."
Prescription Drug Abuse February 4, 2016
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"States such as mine, Vermont, and our neighboring State of New Hampshire have been deeply affected by this wave of addiction. The media has covered this very personal and ravaging epidemic as never before. We have seen a transformation in how we talk about this issue and the need for solutions. It used to be that if you had a drug problem, they would bring in the police to straighten it out. We have removed the stigma of drug addiction, but we need more than talk. I have visited many of these communities. They are devastated by this epidemic and need resources for prevention and treatment. It is time for Congress to act."
