Entry Title Date
Recognizing 50 Years Of The Land And Water Conservation Fund September 19, 2014
Chellie Pingree, D-ME
"LWCF success stories have taken place in every state in the Nation. My home state of Maine alone has received $40 million in grants for federal grant program projects since 1965. The program has helped preserve some of Maine’s most treasured spaces—including the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, Acadia National Park, the Saint Croix Island International Historic Site, and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail—as well as many more nationwide."
Taiwan National Day Remembrance September 19, 2014
Kurt Schrader, D-OR
"On this occasion, I would like to note how important Taiwan is to my home state of Oregon. Last year, Oregon exports to Taiwan reached $825.6 million. Taiwan became our 5th largest trading partner in Asia and the 7th largest in the world. From agriculture to machinery, Oregon products serve a large part of Taiwan’s industries. There are more opportunities to capitalize on and I look forward to working to grow investments and exports to help both our peoples."
Recognizing The University Of Pikeville September 18, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, I rise today to honor a venerable institution of higher learning from my home State of Kentucky the University of Pikeville. UPike, as it is more commonly known, is celebrating 125 years of educating young minds on its campus in eastern Kentucky."
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed— Continued September 18, 2014
John Thune, R-SD
"Tribes and tribal organizations across the country, including the Great Plains Tribal Chairman Association and the Coalition of Large Tribes representing the nine tribes in my home State of South Dakota, are urging us to move forward with this legislation."
American Energy Solutions For Lower Costs And More American Jobs Act September 18, 2014
Doug Lamborn, R-CO
"In my home State of Colorado, a permit for an energy project can be approved in 27 days for State land projects. For a project on Federal land in Colorado, the Obama administration takes nearly a year to approve the same permit. This delay in approvals not only delays energy production, it delays job creation and revenues to State and local governments."
