Recovering Missing Children Act May 10, 2016
Erik Paulsen, R-MN
"Mr. Speaker, I won’t go on too much longer. We have had great testimony and offerings today by folks who have been working in a very bipartisan way on a very key component that has been around for 5 years but will absolutely make a difference in solving missing child abduction cases. It is common sense, it is bipartisan, and most importantly, it will help reunite families with missing children."

In Recognition Of Stratford Portuguese Hall April 26, 2016
David Valadao, R-CA
"Stratford Portuguese Hall brought the “Festa” weekend traditions of serving sopas, dancing, and parades to Stratford for the first time in 1916. The celebrations can be traced back to medieval Portugal when Queen Isabel made offerings of food and festival to the people in 1296. Since 1916, these Portuguese traditions have been shared with the community of Stratford. The goal of the “Festa” is to honor the past, celebrate the present, and encourage the future, while celebrating the Portuguese culture."
No Rate Regulation Of Broadband Internet Access Act April 15, 2016
Greg Walden, R-OR
"The issue here is about controlling a bureaucracy from doing something it has never had the power to do before: giving clarity in the marketplace, that they cannot regulate the rates of Internet service providers, which, in effect, has the ability of regulating innovation in new offerings for consumers."
