Entry Title Date
Generic Drug Report And Study Request December 15, 2014
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"Incentivizing and supporting plan sponsors to not only include generic drugs on plan formularies but also to proactively promote the maximum use of generic alternatives where appropriate. Currently, most plan sponsors offer a full array of generic alternatives, but they are not required to do so, leaving a small number of plan formularies that do not maximize generic offerings. In addition, there are no mechanisms that reward or incentivize plan sponsors that have undertaken successful strategies to further increase generics use. Encouraging value in Part D plans as much as possible will be increasingly important in coming years."

Honoring Kyle Matthew Ota, Eagle Scout, Boy Scout Troop 611, San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin July 29, 2014
Zoe Lofgren, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise to congratulate Kyle Matthew Ota, a member of Boy Scout Troop 611 at the San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin and one of my constituents, on achieving of the rank of Eagle Scout in April of 2014. Kyle, the son of Pat and Dorothy Ota, began his scouting career as a member of Cub Scout Pack 611 at the San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin, where he earned the Metta and Sangha awards, as well as the Arrow of Light. Rising through the ranks, Kyle served as patrol leader, troop quartermaster, dharma scribe, troop scribe, senior patrol leader, and den chief. Kyle’s Eagle Scout project reflects his longstanding commitment to the people of San Jose, and the residents of Japantown in particular. Yu-Ai Kai, a stellar community-based organization that promotes healthy aging, independent living, and high quality of life, provides multi-lingual community services, social interaction, and a sense of belonging to our elderly citizens. Seniors and their families frequently pass in front of Yu-Ai Kai’s Akiyama Senior Wellness Center on Jackson Street while traversing beautiful Japantown, so Kyle constructed an outdoor bulletin board in front of the building. This board displays flyers, schedules, and other information that allows seniors to better understand and utilize the Akiyama’s many life-improving offerings. Kyle was a scholar-athlete at St. Francis High School in Mountain View, where he participated in varsity track and intramurals, earned entry into the honor roll and National Honor Society, and was awarded tuition assistance by the California Scholarship Federation. Kyle now attends San Diego State University, where the dedication to community service instilled in him by scouting continues to make his parents—and all of us in California’s 19th District—very proud.
