Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Honoring Sharon Palmer October 9, 2015
Joe Courtney, D-CT
"Sharon never shies from speaking her mind or sticking up for policies that Connecticut workers need and deserve. If you are at odds with Sharon, you can expect a firm, but fair discussion. She would never back down when the well-being of Connecticut families is at stake. Sharon hails from Waterford, CT, in the southeastern part of the state. Somehow she always found time to participate at the local level of town government and was an active member of the Democratic Town Committee. Sharon was and is a staunch supporter of mine who helped me win a victory to Congress in 2006 in a hard fought race that was decided by the smallest of margins—83 votes."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 538, Native American Energy Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 702, Adaptation To Changing Crude Oil Markets October 8, 2015
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I yield 4 minutes to the distinguished gentleman from New York (Mr. Tonko), a good friend of mine. He is the ranking member of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Motion To Proceed October 8, 2015
Mike Lee, R-UT
"Meanwhile, we have both the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and its House counterpart, the House Natural Resources Committee, working on reforms to the LWCF to address some of the issues that are causing a lot of people to be concerned with the LWCF. These issues involve, for instance, the maintenance backlog that we have with regard to many of our national parks and public lands and also with regard to the manner in which the Federal Government acquires new land. This is of concern to many of us, especially those of us who come from a State like mine where the Federal Government owns nearly 70 percent of the land."
The Progressive Caucus October 8, 2015
Rosa DeLauro, D-CT
"And by locking in these corporate monopolies, the agreement compromises our access to medicines for the people who need it the most: your constituents, my colleague, and mine, and all of our colleagues."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Motion To Proceed—Continued October 8, 2015
Angus King, I-ME
"So what is the solution? A friend of mine in Maine coined the term, which I think aptly applies—in fact, it probably applies in this case more than any other: There is no silver bullet. There may, however, be silver “buckshot”—a multiplicity of solutions, no single solution. Nothing we do today in the way of background checks or anything else is going to solve this problem entirely. We must recognize that. So we must move in a comprehensive way—not only on the Federal level but on the State level as well—not to compromise the Second Amendment, not to take guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens, not to make it inherently more difficult for law-abiding citizens to maintain them but to put into place commonsense solutions to deal with this epidemic of gun violence."
