Entry Title Date
Conference Report On S. 524, Comprehensive Addiction And Recovery Act Of 2016 July 8, 2016
Gus Bilirakis, R-FL
"My bills, the PROMISE Act and COVER Act, will update the clinical practice guidelines used to treat our servicemembers for pain management and provide a pathway forward to implement complementary and integrative health alternatives within the VA."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Conference Report—Continued June 28, 2016
Robert Menendez, D-NJ
"What the Senator said is absolutely right, and this is one of the critical elements of why a clear pathway to restructuring is so necessary, because if there is no clear pathway to restructuring and if there are no safeguards over the control board, the determination of how much that control board can say that you have to pursue in terms of payments towards creditors, the effort that they will consider sufficient in their sole discretion about whether they have made an appropriate, reasonable effort to deal with creditors could lead them to an enormous payment, and they are already using a third of every dollar in revenue they have to pay interest. So the whole purpose of this debate or the effort of the bill that is on the floor is to create a pathway to restructuring so that they don’t have to come up with $17 billion—nearly 25 percent of all of their budget—in a way that would cripple the essential services for Puerto Rico. So, yes, it is a very legitimate concern. It is one of the reasons we need a clear pathway to restructuring. It is why we shouldn’t have a control board with a supermajority vote necessary to achieve that and with arbitrary standards like “in its sole discretion.”"
Social Impact Partnerships To Pay For Results Act June 21, 2016
John Delaney, D-MD
"It creates pathways for innovation and best ideas and new ideas to flow into the government sector, and it creates a pathway and a framework for more transparency and more metrics as it relates to what the results are."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 19, 2016
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"I want to make sure that we defeat this amendment for those reasons. I believe and know the values of my colleague who proposed this. I do not think it achieves the end that we want to see by disempowering people to try to help families like mine. I was a child in DC moving to New Jersey and found justice—found a pathway toward integration. Indeed, I doubt I would be here right now if it weren’t for the laws of our land."
Congressional Black Caucus May 16, 2016
Marcia Fudge, D-OH
"Our Nation’s children deserve better. It is time we prioritize education and not incarceration. Comprehensive criminal justice reform must include policies which dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline. We must reauthorize the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, a bill that funds delinquency prevention and improvements in State and local juvenile justice programs, supports restorative initiatives, and promotes early intervention. Disrupting the pipeline will provide a pathway for a successful future and lessen the burden on our current judicial system."
