Recognizing The 50Th Anniversary Of The Rotary Club Of Annandale July 31, 2015
Gerald Connolly, D-VA
"The world’s first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago was formed February 23, 1905, by Paul P. Harris. The name “Rotary” is derived from the early practice of rotating meetings among members’ offices. The Rotary Club concept thrived in its early years, and by 1921 there were chapters on six continents. In 1922, the name “Rotary International” was adopted. The objective of Rotary International is to encourage and foster community service. International understanding, goodwill, and peace are promoted through the shared commitment to service of Rotarians from around the world. Rotary International now boasts more than 1.2 million members in 166 countries, and I am pleased to be counted among their honorary ranks."

Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 30, 2015
James Inhofe, R-OK
"This is a chart of Chicago I-290, I-90, and I-94, the three intersections. This goes between those three. Look at it. It is all of these. I haven’t even counted the lanes. Traffic is stopped, and it is just one of the congestions. When this happens, the average speed in this case is 29 miles an hour. In the morning and evening rush hour, it is 20 miles an hour. Then it talks about all of the pollution that is there. People are idling their engines while they are waiting in traffic."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 28, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"When it comes to mass transit, come on down to the Loop in Chicago in the morning and stand with me and watch the folks streaming out of the train stations and off the CTA and off the buses, headed to work every day. It is essential to the economy of Chicago and Illinois, the State I represent."
