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."
Safe Climate Caucus September 17, 2014
Lois Capps, D-CA
"Climate change is the defining challenge of our time. It threatens our economy and our way of life in countless ways through catastrophic wildfires, through severe storms and rising seas; and in my home State of California, one of the worst droughts on record threatens water supplies for drinking water and irrigation of valuable crops. This year alone, the drought will cost the agricultural sector $2.2 billion dollars and over 17,000 jobs."
Hispanic Heritage Month 2014 September 17, 2014
Marc Veasey, D-TX
"In my home State of Texas, the Hispanic community continues to relish in the cultural and historical footprint in the areas of government, architecture, business, and the arts. From north Texas Hispanic elected officials, both past and present who are advocating for the Latino community, to the Rose Marine Theater in Fort Worth and the Latino cultural center in Dallas, Hispanic culture continues to illuminate all aspects of life and history in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex."
Remember Puna September 17, 2014
Colleen Hanabusa, D-HI
"Madam Speaker, my home State of Hawaii is a unique and a very special place. There isn’t a day that goes by that either a colleague or someone stops me to share with me a very special story about Hawaii."
