Entry Title Date
Brain Health November 19, 2014
Roger Williams, R-TX
"The Center for Brain Health and Brain Performance has provided scientifically proven programs to more than 500 warriors in seven States, including my home State of Texas. The institute’s service to our troops is outstanding. They are the perfect example of America’s commitment to take care of our warriors and their families, and I am proud to recognize their good works."
Secret Science Reform Act Of 2014 November 19, 2014
Kevin Cramer, R-ND
"In my home State of North Dakota, there are 4,000 megawatts of low-cost electricity—the jobs that producing that electricity creates and the competitiveness that that electricity provides for our economy—that is at stake, all based on EPA rules that are based on some 1970s, decades-old data and studies that are only available to the bureaucrats."
Retirement Of Steve Baccus, President Of Kansas Farm Bureau November 19, 2014
Jerry Moran, R-KS
"Madam President, agriculture is the lifeblood of my home State of Kansas. It drives our economy, but more importantly, it offers our citizens a way of life that is unique in today’s world."
National Career Development Month November 19, 2014
Jim Langevin, D-RI
"In conversations with businesses across my home state of Rhode Island, I have been hearing a constant refrain: Employers have job openings but are unable to find local, skilled workers with the expertise necessary to fill the open positions. Meanwhile, job seekers find it hard to acquire these skills without the proper training, a vicious cycle that continues to hold back our economy."
Stela Reauthorization Act Of 2014 November 19, 2014
Greg Walden, R-OR
"Mr. Speaker, last July the House of Representatives passed H.R. 4572, the STELA Reauthorization Act, by unanimous vote. Today, after extensive consultation with our colleagues in the Senate, we are offering a second version of STELA’s reauthorization, which will extend the copyright and retransmission consent provisions for distant signals retransmitted by commercial satellite providers for 5 years. Now, if we don’t act to extend these provisions by the end of this Congress, there will be 1.5 million subscribers to satellite television, including many in my home State of Oregon, that just won’t have access to broadcast network programming come New Year’s Day."
