Albio Sires, D-NJ
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Stephen Adubato, Sr., the founder of the North Ward Center and an inspiring figure of the Newark, New Jersey, community.

Water Resources Reform And Development Act Of 2013 October 23, 2013
Bill Shuster, R-PA
"Unfortunately, this amendment would change that. The Corps currently is required to look at the national impact to the economy. So, for instance, the Port of New Orleans, it is extremely important to the Nation; the Port of Newark, New Jersey, extremely important to the Nation."
Cbc Hour: Small Business Week June 17, 2013
Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY
"I thank the distinguished gentleman from New Jersey for so eloquently laying out the history of entrepreneurship in America through the lens of the Black community, and also for detailing his own personal experiences in Newark, New Jersey, experiences that, I think, were replicated in many inner cities all across the country in the face of urban decay and abandonment that took place in the 1960s and in the 1970s. It was those African Americans who remained behind in inner city after inner city after inner city in America with an entrepreneurial idea of providing a service that otherwise may not have been available. We want to make sure that we create opportunities for all Americans to be able to grow their businesses and transform their ideas into reality."
Honoring The 50Th Anniversary Of The Children’S Institute (Tci) April 12, 2013
Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-NJ
"The Children’s Institute began as an orphanage in Newark, New Jersey in 1883. Eventually in the 1960s, after recognizing that there were other needs in the community, the board decided to convert the orphanage into a school for children with emotional and behavioral disabilities that were not currently being cared for by local schools. In 1963, The Children’s Institute, located in Livingston, New Jersey, was formed as one of the first statewide, non-profit special education facilities. For the next forty-six years, TCI continued to help children until expansion was needed as a result of the growing needs of the community. In 1999, the Children’s institute was able to move into a much larger, 47,000 square ft. facility, in Verona, New Jersey, donated by the Swiss global health-care pharmaceutical company, Hoffmann-LaRoche."
A Call For Action Against Gun Violence December 18, 2012
Donald Payne, D-NJ
"Mr. Speaker, I rise first to offer my deepest condolences to the families of the victims in the recent Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. In addition, I add my voice to the outcry of my colleagues, constituents, and Americans around the Nation to call for action against gun violence in this country. This Connecticut tragedy was the 30th mass murder in the U.S. since the 1999 Columbine incident, but mass murders only represent a small portion of the gun violence in America. In my hometown of Newark, New Jersey, 348 shootings and 93 deaths occurred last year as a result of gun violence."
