National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016—Conference Report October 1, 2015
Christopher Coons, D-DE
"Almost every day I ride the Amtrak train from Wilmington, DE, to Washington, DC, and as I look out the window as we pass through the city of Newark, DE, I see the site of the old Chrysler assembly plant. Each time I see it, I think about what it was like going to the plant gates and visiting with friends and family and the thousands of men and women who worked shifts for decades at this tremendous automobile manufacturing plant that made the Durango and, for decades before that, other models."
Honoring Willis “Wally” Walling September 17, 2015
Mark Sanford, R-SC
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor and remember Willis R. Walling, who died on Wednesday, September 9, 2015, at the age of ninety-four. Affectionately known as “Wally” to me and many others, he will be missed. Born in Newark, NJ, he was the son of the late Willis H. and Gladys R. Walling. Those who knew Wally would say some of his fondest memories were of the time he spent serving as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II. You might even call his adventures “legendary,” with sixty-six missions in Europe and becoming the tenth Allied plane to land in France after D-Day. He was one of the greatest supporters of the Allied Forces through France and beyond. After leaving the service, he and his wife, Peg, moved to New Jersey where he served as President of Swan Manufacturing in Rockaway, NJ. It was during his time in Rockaway that he and Peg became active in the New Jersey Republican Party where he served as chairman for a period of time. As many Northerners do, he and Peg moved south after retirement. Lucky for us South Carolinians, they chose Pawleys Island as their new home. They both quickly became active in local politics. I had the pleasure of meeting Wally during my first run for Congress in 1994 and have since appreciated his kindness and hospitality. Of course, you appreciate everyone who joins you in the heat of battle on the campaign trail, but it is the ones who are with you from the beginning who you hold closest to your heart. Wally was one of the loyal ones who would stick with you. Loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage are the seven values of the Army, and Wally was a man who exemplified every one of them. His surviving daughters, Susan Houser, Jeanne Auermuller (Bob), and Diane Dunham (Phil), eight grandchildren, and twelve great-grandchildren can be proud of the man they called “Dad” or “Grandpa,” and I have no doubt that they would be. They will miss him dearly … and I will too."
Drive Act July 22, 2015
James Inhofe, R-OK
"We have the U.S. 1-9 over the Passaic River in Newark, NJ. Senator Booker and Senator Menendez are concerned about that. Herbert Hoover was President when the bridge was built in 1932 with an estimated design volume of 5,500 vehicles a day. It is now up to 62,700 vehicles per day."
Congressional Black Caucus July 13, 2015
Robin Kelly, D-IL
"I yield to the kind gentleman from Newark, New Jersey (Mr. Payne)."
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
John Thune, R-SD
"Two weeks ago, I came to the floor to talk about the massive rate hikes customers on exchanges are facing for 2016. Let me just read a couple headlines from the first week in June. CNN: “Obamacare sticker shock: Big rate hikes proposed for 2016.” From the New York Times: “Many Health Insurers Go Big With Initial 2016 Rate Requests.” From the Wall Street Journal: “More Health-Care Insurers Seek Big Premium Increases.” From the Associated Press: “8 Minnesota Health Plans Propose Big Premium Hikes for 2016.” From the Newark Star-Ledger: “Premiums to jump more than 10 percent on many Obamacare policies.”"
