Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Department Of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015 March 3, 2015
Thomas Massie, R-KY
"HICE of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, as we all know, we are in this predicament and in this mess because of the unconstitutional and unilateral decisions from the President to ignore our Constitution, and the only thing standing in the way of that progressing is a stay from the courts. As thankful as I am for the courts, the reality is we must stand up and defend our Constitution. It is a constitutional issue, Mr. Speaker, and we have the responsibility to stand for that cause."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 749, Passenger Rail Reform And Investment Act Of 2015, And Providing For Proceedings During The Period From March 6, 2015, Through March 13, 2015 March 3, 2015
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"If you live in the State of Georgia, you can ride your horse to your next destination faster than you can take the train. That is not an inequity that we are going to solve in this bill; and, arguably, we don’t even need to solve that inequity."
Department Of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015 March 2, 2015
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Madam President, this weekend the United States will mark the 50th anniversary of the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Those of us who are not old enough to remember 50 years ago have read the history. Those of us who were old enough at that time saw what happened at that historic march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge five decades ago. Scores of courageous Americans refused to be silent about the need for equal protection under the law. This was a case where their blood, sweat, and tears helped move our Nation toward a more perfect union. One of those who actually shed blood—in fact, nearly died on that march for freedom and equality—is one of my closest friends in Congress, Congressman John Lewis of Georgia."
Further Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 February 27, 2015
Doug Collins, R-GA
"Fortunately, Mr. Speaker, the State of Texas and others, including my great home State of Georgia, stepped up to the plate and led a lawsuit with other States against the President and his unilateral actions. A judge in Texas ruled on that case 11 days ago and said that the President’s November executive amnesty action was illegal. "
Trade Promotion Authority February 27, 2015
Johnny Isakson, R-GA
"It is time for us to sit around the table and talk about $2.3 trillion in business for our country and 39.8 million jobs in our country. Let’s talk about how we can increase those jobs. In my State of Georgia, 1.2 million jobs are directly export-related. The Congress of the United States appropriated $706 million over the next 6 years for the deepening and expansion of the Savannah Harbor in Savannah, GA. The Panama Canal is being widened and next year will open to the ships of the 21st century. Are they going to go somewhere else if we don’t do trade promotion authority? Probably so. We all saw what happened last week when the west coast shut down because of the longshoremen’s strike and what an impact it had on our economy. That is the kind of impact we are going to have if we don’t do trade promotion authority for the President."
