Congratulating Oklahoma Universities November 13, 2014
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Mr. President, I wish to applaud the University of Central Oklahoma and the University of Oklahoma for being recognized by the Military Times as among the 100 best colleges for our Nation’s veterans. With over 2,400 students who are veterans between them, UCO and OU provide outstanding support and academic experiences for our Nation’s heroes after they have returned from their service to our Nation in uniform."
Keystone Xl Pipeline September 18, 2014
James Inhofe, R-OK
"This is interesting because the first Director of the EPA who was chosen and confirmed during the Obama administration was Lisa Jackson. I asked her the question live on TV during one of our committee hearings—I said: Hydraulic fracturing—people are creating problems with this. Yet we have never had a problem, and it all started in my State of Oklahoma. Has there ever been a documented case of groundwater contamination with hydraulic fracturing?"
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 17, 2014
James Lankford, R-OK
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to voice the concern though of the people of Oklahoma. We believe this administration has the habit of twisting every bill into what they want it to say rather than what it actually says; so I want to clarify this amendment."
Additional Statements September 17, 2014
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"Dean is a longtime journalist and native of Maryville, TN, where he served as editor of the Maryville-Alcoa Daily Times and still serves as opinion editor today. In each Sunday’s edition, he writes his “Bits of Stone” about the history and happenings around Blount County. Dean earned his degree in journalism from the University of Oklahoma in 1949 after serving in World War II, where he originated the idea of raising the American flag over Yugoslavia. After college, he decided to return to Maryville and began his career with the Maryville-Alcoa Daily Times as a Sunday editor."
Continuing Resolution September 17, 2014
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Every time I hear a large figure, I look at the population in my State of Oklahoma and see what that cost means to a family. In my State of Oklahoma, $300 billion to $400 billion a year would be a permanent tax increase for the average family in Oklahoma—that files a Federal income tax—of $3,000 a year."
