Gun Violence In America: Stopping The Bloodshed July 15, 2016
Joyce Beatty, D-OH
"Last month, House Democrats, led by our CBC colleague and iconic civil rights leader Congressman John Lewis from the 5th district of Georgia, held a 26-hour sit-in on the Floor of the House of Representatives to demand House Republican Leaders hold a vote on legislation to address gun violence."
Patient Access To Durable Medical Equipment Act Of 2016 July 8, 2016
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"The First Congressional District of Georgia has numerous durable medical device companies that provide services throughout all of southeast Georgia. With many parts of my district being rural communities, evidence suggests that the current structure of CMS’ proposed pricing of DMEs would significantly harm these communities. That is why H.R. 5210 is so important."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Conference Report June 28, 2016
Johnny Isakson, R-GA
"A lot of people think that if you don’t have mosquitoes, you don’t have to worry about Zika. Zika is transmitted in two very distinct ways. One is through one of two types of mosquitoes, both indigenous to my State of Georgia and most of the southeastern United States. But Zika is also transmitted by sexual intercourse, which means whether you are in Colorado where there are no mosquitos or Georgia where there are, there is another way to transmit it as well. If we don’t have a good education process in terms of how people can protect themselves against transmitting the Zika virus during sexual intercourse or protect themselves against bites by mosquitoes carrying the virus, we are going to be in big trouble. We will have a lot of babies born who will have lives of tragedy because we didn’t do our jobs as U.S. Senators."
