Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 19, 2016
John McCain, R-AZ
"I don’t know what the priorities are of the Senator from Wyoming, but I can tell him now, they are not mine, and they are not of the men and women who are serving this Nation who deserve the best care and the choice of going to the provider that they want to within certain parameters."
In Support Of H.R. 241, The Access Act May 19, 2016
Ken Calvert, R-CA
"This is also a bipartisan issue supported by states. I was pleased to see that California SB 269 passed unanimously in the State Assembly and Senate, and was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on May 10th, 2016. SB 269 was authored by a friend of mine, Democratic State Senator, Gen. Richard Roth. The legislation is similar to the ACCESS Act in that it allows businesses to take immediate steps to become accessible by providing them with 120 days, from receipt of a Certified Access Specialist report, to resolve any identified violations without being subject to litigation costs or statutory penalties. I worry that with California acting to curb these lawsuits, some of these serial litigants will try their trade in other states."
Honoring Jerry Clark May 16, 2016
Eleanor Norton, D-DC
"Jerry brought similar vigor to other causes and endeavors. A graduate of Princeton University and the University of Chicago Law School, Jerry completed his doctoral studies and then spent his career dedicated to workers as executive director of the United Mine Workers Health and Retirement Funds."
Zika Virus May 16, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Because States like mine boast a warmer climate and they are in closer proximity to where the mosquitoes that currently carry the Zika virus are located, we will likely serve on the frontline in dealing this summer with this response nationwide."
Providing For Consideration Of S. 524, Comprehensive Addiction And Recovery Act Of 2016 May 13, 2016
Jared Polis, D-CO
"I rise today to honor a constituent of mine, Mr. Timothy J. Gagen of Breckenridge, Colorado. Tim is retiring from 40 years of civil service in municipal government. He has served towns and cities across Colorado, Illinois, and Indiana and recently received the Colorado City and County Management Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award."
