Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Disclosure Modernization And Simplification Act Of 2014 December 2, 2014
Marlin Stutzman, R-IN
"It will revise regulations to include startup companies, to eliminate redundant and duplicative provisions, and to discourage the disclosure of immaterial information, among other simplifications. Now is the time to remove these roadblocks on the pathway to success."
Nomination Of Robert S. Adler To Be A Commissioner Of The Consumer Product Safety Commission—Continued December 2, 2014
Robert Menendez, D-NJ
"This isn’t amnesty because amnesty means you did something wrong and you are forgiven and get whatever you want. Amnesty means you get something for nothing. First of all, these people have no pathway to becoming a permanent resident or citizen under the President’s Executive order. Secondly, their only opportunity is not to be deported, assuming they can pass a background check and pay their taxes. "
Honoring Mayor Willie W. Weatherford December 1, 2014
Jeffrey Denham, R-CA
"Notable projects completed during Mayor Weatherford’s tenure include: conversion of an abandoned sugar beet factory into Spreckels Industrial Park, several senior housing projects, multi-purpose gyms at Golden West School and Sequoia School sites in conjunction with the Manteca Unified School District, a skate park, BMX park, Big League Dreams sports park, the Tidewater Bike Path, which converted nearly four miles of abandoned railroad tracks into a pedestrian and bicycle pathway, Stadium Plaza, Northern California’s first Bass Pro Shop and the Manteca Lifestyle Center at the Promenade."
Immigration Reform November 19, 2014
Debbie Stabenow, D-MI
"We know how to do that in the Senate on immigration as well because a whole different group of people across the aisle sat down with very different ideas. How do we strengthen the border? How do we have a system that works for agriculture and business? How do we create a pathway of earning their citizenship in this country? People worked in a very complicated situation, they worked together, and ultimately, after a lot of amendments and slogging it through on the floor, just as we did on the farm bill, we achieved that. We achieved that. We achieved that 510 days ago."
Immigration Reform November 19, 2014
Charles Schumer, D-NY
"Many of our labor friends are for this bill. The construction trades, which probably suffer more from illegal immigration than any other, are strongly for our bill. The bill clears the employment and visa backlogs so American businesses can have access to the workers they need and their families will be united, decreases family wait times at our bridges and ports of entry. It is great for the tourism industry, making it easier for foreign travelers to spend their dollars here instead of somewhere else and, finally, a tough but fair pathway to citizenship."
