Entry Title Date
Tribute To Dr. Harold Mcfarlane February 4, 2016
Mike Simpson, R-ID
"While working at Argonne-West, Harold took up another challenge and earned his Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Chicago. As recognition of his skills and leadership became better known, in 2006 Harold was elected President of the American Nuclear Society."
Flint, Michigan, Water Crisis February 4, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Instead, what we seem to have found happening is, in the immortal words of Rahm Emanuel—now the mayor of Chicago, formerly chief of Staff of the White House—never let a crisis go to waste. That is what is happening here. It is not responsible. It is not reasonable. And I think Senator Murkowski’s counteroffer to the demands of the Senators from Michigan demonstrates it is not even a good-faith effort to try to solve the problem. It is just trying to put on a show vote and embarrass people."
American Safe Act January 20, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Wadad is now a freshman in high school in the city of Chicago. She is a sweet, young girl who has seen more tragedy in her life than any of us would ever want to see. She and her mom want to make a life here, and she knows it is up to her to get a good education to make sure she can make that happen."
Additional Statements January 19, 2016
John Boozman, R-AR
"After earning his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Chicago, he went on to the University of Wisconsin School of Law, where he practiced law in Milwaukee. Witte spent the rest of his career at the University of Arkansas School of Law, where he officially retired in 1994, but continued teaching until the fall 2015 semester."
Congressional Black Caucus January 11, 2016
Robin Kelly, D-IL
"In fact, we are 11 days into 2016, and there have already been 80 shootings in my hometown of Chicago. Four people were shot and killed in less than 24 hours."
