Entry Title Date
Bring Jobs Home Act—Motion To Proceed July 24, 2014
Jack Reed, D-RI
"But again, averting disaster shouldn’t be our goal. We need to press ahead with a multiyear reauthorization bill to create jobs and improve our economy. Unfortunately, when it comes to helping American workers and our economy, Republican leaders, particularly in the House, have stalled progress."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 5021, Highway And Transportation Funding Act Of 2014 July 15, 2014
Daniel Webster, R-FL
"While we must look forward to the passage of another multiyear transportation authorization, there is no reason we should not pass the extension. Certainty means “the state of being free from doubt or reservation; confident; sure.”"
Our Failing Infrastructure July 15, 2014
John Yarmuth, D-KY
"Madam Speaker, we should take this opportunity to create jobs and certainty for a change and enact a multiyear transportation bill."
Highway And Transportation Funding Act Of 2014 July 15, 2014
Rick Crawford, R-AR
"I think most lawmakers can agree that ensuring that we have a reliable and modern infrastructure on land, water, rail, and air is critical. With the Senate announcing last week an agreement with Chairman Camp and House leaders to enact a short-term funding solution, we can now turn our attention back to a multiyear transportation bill that will provide long-term assurance to States for financing infrastructure improvements."
Domestic Prosperity And Global Freedom Act June 24, 2014
Jerry McNerney, D-CA
"Reclaiming my time, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently released its multiyear report on the state of climate science. The world’s leading climate scientists examined the peer-reviewed science and confirmed that climate change is already happening on all continents and across the oceans and will get much worse if we don’t act."
