Entry Title Date
School Food Modernization Act April 7, 2014
Heidi Heitkamp, D-ND
"As the Senate agriculture committee begins to consider reauthorization of the school nutrition program, I look forward to working with my colleagues on improving school meal offerings and providing schools with the tools needed to give our children the nutritional fuel necessary to learn and grow."
Save American Workers Act April 1, 2014
Todd Young, R-IN
"Ivy Tech Community College is also feeling the pinch. In fact, 4,500 of their adjunct professors are losing hours. This is resulting in reduced course offerings for many students, but more importantly for those adjunct professors, they need the wages, they need the hours. Should Ivy Tech decide to continue on with business as usual, they would be eating all sorts of compliance costs to try and measure the hours of their hourly employees and ensure that they are complying with the law. They have done the math. They have figured out that this 30 hours is full time provision amounts to a $12 million unfunded mandate, courtesy of Uncle Sam."
Simmons College Of Kentucky March 5, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Simmons flourished into the 1920s, when enrollment peaked at over 500 students, but this success could not shield the school from the devastation that sprang out of the Great Depression. The school was forced to sell its property in 1930 and drastically scale back its academic offerings. Simmons was down, but in no way, shape, or form was it out. In 1935 its leaders obtained a new location at 1811 Dumesnil Street. At this location, Simmons continued to provide Christian education, and in 1982 the school was renamed Simmons Bible College in order to reflect this focused mission."
Honoring St. Gabriel Mercy Center March 4, 2014
Bennie Thompson, D-MS
"In 1997, the Gabriel Center was opened by Christian Brother Tom Geraghty and in 1999 three Sisters of Mercy arrived. In 2001 the early childhood school closed and the building became a community center for the citizens of Mound Bayou to continue their legacy of being an asset to an improvised community. The current Executive Director, Sister Donald Mary Lynch, joined St. Gabriel Mercy Center in 2001 and continued to expand on program offerings."
Additional Statements February 12, 2014
Kelly Ayotte, R-NH
"For dessert, you can not beat the Backroom’s homemade ice cream. On hot summer nights, it is not unusual to see customers lined up in front of the ice cream stand, eager to choose from among dozens of flavors. You will find the standard offerings—vanilla and chocolate—alongside Backroom favorites, including: Baklava, Moose Tracks, and Mudslide. Speaking of mudslides, they’re also on the drink menu, and the Backroom was once recognized for being the top buyer in the Nation of Baileys Irish Cream."
