Entry Title Date
Make Our Energy More Reliable And More Affordable September 18, 2014
Lee Terry, R-NE
"What we are trying to do here is just figure out a pathway where we don’t have to have this level of disruption and price increases by these rules. And what we are saying here is, come forward with a better rule that gives us more time and a bright pathway so that we don’t make a financial impact to our families."
Remembering Matt Haley September 17, 2014
Christopher Coons, D-DE
"As he memorably remarked in a talk he gave days before he left on this trip to India, Matt had life-altering, terrible experiences as a child. Matt had managed to grow up in an environment of circumstances and have experiences that would cripple any human person, any spirit, and had become someone who was violent and addicted, and inevitably, as a consequence of a lot of his actions, he ended up in jail. He was exactly the sort of person so many would be willing to write off. Yet Matt found an opportunity through the culinary arts, through the simple and powerful skill of cooking for others. He found a pathway back and a roadway up. Matt was someone who cooked not just well but was gifted at pulling together completely unrelated items and making something simple, tasty, and powerful."
Legislative Session September 17, 2014
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Just like the original bill, our bipartisan resolution has numerous cosponsors and the support of our colleagues from both sides of the aisle. Part of the beauty of the Wilderness Act lies in the balance that was forged between immediately designating some places as wilderness in 1964 as part of the enactment, while providing a pathway for future designation."
Promoting Job Creation And Reducing Small Business Burdens Act September 15, 2014
Robert Hurt, R-VA
"Whether a supporter or a skeptic of XBRL, these provisions will help provide a pathway for the SEC to focus on developing a system of disclosure for smaller companies that eliminate unnecessary costs while achieving greater benefits."
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed September 11, 2014
Jeff Merkley, D-OR
"Education is the key to the pathway for the American dream. When I was young, my father took me to the schoolhouse doors and he said: “Those are the doors to opportunity. If you study hard, you can do or be just about anything here in America.”"
