Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 8, 2014
Peter Roskam, R-IL
"My home State is Illinois. The State of Illinois, Mr. Chairman, is a delightful place. It is the “Land of Lincoln” and the birthplace of Ronald Reagan, but it is a fiscal basket case. From a fiscal point of view, my home State is a national punch line, because one party—the other party—has dominated State government for years. For a decade, they have had the Governor’s mansion. They have got majorities in both the Illinois House and the Illinois Senate."
Recognizing The 100Th Anniversary Of The North Shore Sanitary District April 8, 2014
Brad Schneider, D-IL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to mark the 100th anniversary of the North Shore Sanitary District (NSSD), a critically-important municipal utility that serves the suburban Chicago district I represent. Chartered in 1914, NSSD has grown into the second largest sanitary treatment district in the State of Illinois. The wastewater treatment process is critical to the health of our families and our environment. The average American produces 100 gallons of wastewater per day, and NSSD serves more than 300,000 people. NSSD operates three major facilities in the district I represent, with 125 miles of sewers and the capacity to deal with more than 60 million gallons of wastewater each day. For 100 years, NSSD has diligently worked to protect our inland waterways and Lake Michigan from storm and wastewater runoff. The water reclamation process is integral to our modern ecosystems, and NSSD conducts this process with unmatched skill, precision and care. To more appropriately reflect NSSD’s breadth of work and commitment to water quality, NSSD will officially change its name to the North Shore Water Reclamation District. Mr. Speaker, I congratulate NSSD on a century of outstanding service to the North Shore, and I look forward to another 100 years of success as the North Shore Water Reclamation District."
Legislative Session April 8, 2014
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Madam President, it is with a heavy heart that I rise today to speak about the tragic shooting last week at Fort Hood. The shooting claimed the lives of three innocent people. One was a son of Illinois, and 16 others were wounded."
Remembering The Rwandan Genocide April 8, 2014
Gregory Meeks, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, at this time, before I say more, I see the distinguished gentleman from the great State of Illinois and the city of Chicago, and I yield to the Honorable Danny Davis."
Paycheck Fairness Act April 8, 2014
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"In my State of Illinois, 37 percent of married employed mothers are their family’s primary wage earners. Yet they face the same income disparity. It turns out to be a yearly gap of $11,596 on average between men and women who work full time in my State. That is what the disparity in pay between men and women means in the State of Illinois. It is not just less take-home pay for women doing the same job, it means fewer Social Security benefits when they retire. They are not earning at the same level as men. They pay for this discrimination for a lifetime."
