Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued November 18, 2015
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"Mr. President, let me start by congratulating our colleagues on the Environment and Public Works Committee on which I serve, as well as the banking, commerce, and finance committees, where I also serve, on the recent appointment of a House-Senate conference to attempt to produce a final product for a multiyear transportation plan for our country."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency November 17, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"As I said, we also need to find effective ways to support the Sunni tribes and Sunni leaders. Those efforts have been slow, indirect, and insufficient. I called for us to provide lethal assistance to the Free Syrian Army.

Legislation In Congress October 28, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"We have also passed a multiyear highway bill. I think there were more than 30 different temporary patches of our highway bill because of the inadequacy of the highway trust fund. When you buy a gallon of gasoline, I think about 18 cents goes into the highway trust fund out of that gallon of gasoline. Unfortunately, though, our demands have exceeded the amount of money in that fund."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 597, Reform Exports And Expand The American Economy Act October 26, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"A motion on the floor tonight will demonstrate that a majority of this House supports taking action to pass a multiyear extension of the Bank’s charter authority. We will have a chance to show the American people that Congress can work together, Democrats and Republicans, to get something done that helps businesses and workers compete and create jobs."
