Tributes To Departing Senators December 15, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Senator Coburn is a longtime public servant for the State of Oklahoma. Members retire from Congress for a host of reasons, and I know Senator Coburn’s retirement has been hastened. He has left his mark on this institution, and I wish him, his wife Carolyn, their three daughters and their grandchildren good health and all the best in Tom Coburn’s retirement from the Senate."
Native American Housing Assistance And Self-Determination Reauthorization Act Of 2014 December 2, 2014
Tom Cole, R-OK
"I know, and happened to come in the last part of the debate, there was some discussion about the Cherokee Freedmen issue. That is an issue I know a fair amount about since the tribe is located in my home State of Oklahoma. I want to agree with Ms. Moore that we do have a chief, Chief Baker, who is extremely concerned about this issue and is trying to work it through."
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."
