Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Paycheck Fairness Act—Motion To Proceed—Continued April 8, 2014
Patty Murray, D-WA
"It will get worse and worse if we do not solve the problem. So I have come to the floor today to call on my colleagues, Democrats and Republicans, to work together to avert this looming crisis and to do it in a commonsense way that gives our States the multiyear certainty they need to plan projects, to invest in their communities, and to create jobs."
Debbie Smith Reauthorization Act Of 2014 April 7, 2014
Robert Goodlatte, R-VA
"This Congress will be helping to fight crime when we get these perpetrators of these horrific events much, much more quickly than these multiyear delays that we have heard about tonight. We need to get them quickly. We need to prosecute the guilty. We need to exonerate the innocent and put the guilty ones in prison, where they cannot perpetrate more of these crimes. Some of them are out on the streets for additional years perpetrating multitudinous crimes. This is a serious problem. It will save the taxpayers money by reducing the amount of crime that is perpetrated in our society."
Legislative Session April 2, 2014
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"In short, all of these reasons point to something critical: It would make it easier for our region to be prosperous, for businesses to grow, and American opportunity to increase. It is essential that Congress join with Amtrak in advancing this important regional project and support Amtrak’s overall mission to deliver reliable, efficient passenger rail service across the United States. For Amtrak to be successful in the long term, Congress needs to become a more reliable investment partner and fund multiyear Amtrak budgets, to have predictability in that funding, making it again multiyear. Our current approach of lurching from annual budget to annual budget does not allow for Amtrak to flourish and serve our citizens as it could and as it should. We need a level of predictability to make these kinds of investments. Support for the Amtrak fiscal year 2015 budget request would be a step in the right direction."
Coast Guard And Maritime Transportation Act Of 2014 April 1, 2014
John Garamendi, D-CA
"It provides a new multiyear procurement authority for the offshore patrol cutter, the OPC, a critical and new asset. It directs the administration to enforce our cargo preference laws. No way out, guys. Enforce those laws and regulations, something that is long overdue."
Federal Communications Commission Process Reform Act Of 2013 March 11, 2014
Greg Walden, R-OR
"So this bill is the result of a multiyear process, ending with bipartisan agreement that takes important steps towards improving this very important agency. This legislation will produce a joint effort where the Commission establishes procedures to achieve the goals established by Congress."
