Entry Title Date
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency—Continued November 17, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"The rules will also drive new investment in clean energy generation and energy efficiency technologies while growing the economy, shrinking household electricity bills, and putting the U.S. on a pathway to lead the world in creating new clean energy jobs. In addition, EPA’s rules would lead to climate and health benefits worth up to $54 billion annually, including avoiding 3,600 premature deaths; 90,000 asthma attacks in children; and up to 3,400 heart attacks and hospital visits. This is a win-win for America."
In Recognition Of Patricia Miljanich October 26, 2015
Jackie Speier, D-CA
"As a result of her leadership and that of her board colleagues, the San Mateo County Community Colleges now have stunning state-of-the-art campuses, classes that offer a broad path to a four year institution, and several shorter programs that prepare students to be job ready through two year degrees and certificates. As a pathway to lifelong learning and prosperity, the college district reflects the vision of Trustee Miljanich that every young person, and many who are in mid-career or retirement, should view the community colleges as their ongoing ticket to a rigorous education."
Potential Default October 22, 2015
Brad Ashford, D-NE
"Colleagues, let’s not bring the government again to the edge of a default. Rather, let’s find a bipartisan pathway, which I know we can do, that will control our spending and prevent the devastating effects of default on our economy and our veterans."
Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act October 22, 2015
Buddy Carter, R-GA

Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3762, Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015; Waiving A Requirement Of Clause 6(A) Of Rule Xiii With Respect To Consideration Of… October 22, 2015
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"But we include authority to avoid the Rules Committee for some of these issues that are going to come to the floor fast and furious. Here we are, at the end of a cycle. We are in a leadership change here in the House. You don’t know what might happen. What the Rules Committee did last night was to create a pathway to allow the House to continue its business at a moment’s notice, and I am glad that we included that provision in here. We also include same-day consideration authority. "
