Entry Title Date
Honoring Mary Nelson Adams August 4, 2015
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"Ms. Adams has been the recipient of additional honors throughout her years of service. In 2006, President George W. Bush gave her a pin to honor her service for soldiers. In 2008, the USO’s World Headquarters named her “Volunteer of the Year,” which she was the first ever to receive that recognition. The president of the USO of Georgia said Ms Adams was “the epitome” of the organization’s mission."

Honoring The Life Of Capt. Richard “Dick” Currier July 28, 2015
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"Captain Currier’s last duty assignment started in 1983 as the commanding officer of Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in St. Marys, Georgia. At the time of his arrival, only 100 people were assigned to the base. Kings Bay’s pier was still under construction, a majority of roads were unpaved, and most buildings were still in the planning stages. Under Captain Currier’s leadership Kings Bay developed into the Navy gem of Georgia‘s Golden Isles."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 427, Regulations From The Executive In Need Of Scrutiny Act Of 2015; Providing For Proceedings During The Period From July 30, 2015, Through September 7, 2015… July 28, 2015
Doug Collins, R-GA
"As we have been here today—and I have, listening to the arguments—what is amazingly—from our side, I have wanted to talk about regulation and the overreach of many of our branches; the gentleman from Illinois brought it up tremendously, and I have talked about this in the Ninth District of Georgia, where I am from—is that, for many years, I believe Congress decided, for whatever reason, it was much easier to give to agencies to promulgate rules and regulations. They said it is much easier."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3009, Enforce The Law For Sanctuary Cities Act July 23, 2015
Doug Collins, R-GA
"We have talked about this. We have had immigration hearings. We have begun the process of marking up legislation to secure our communities, to secure our borders, and to do those things; but before we start throwing in the nature of saying there is all wrong with the Republican majority on something that we have not done, I just want to go back and remind—I am still one who at the time was out there watching the proceedings from my home in the State of Georgia, where we were doing everything we could to balance the needs of our State and our economy during shutdown and during a depression, recession—whatever you want to call it—and we were trying to balance budgets, and we were watching this issue up here, but what I saw was that we are told today we are waiting for Republicans and the Republicans have all this bad agenda."
