Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 12, 2016
Jeff Merkley, D-OR
"As we can see, the vast bulk of the reserves that are in the ground have to be left in the ground. That is the 80 percent that has to be left in the ground. This “Keep It in the Ground” movement is all about understanding this core carbon math and crafting policies in which we emphasize that we are on a pathway to achieving success; that is, to leave this 80 percent in the ground."
Recognizing The Southeast Community Development Corporation May 6, 2016
Marc Veasey, D-TX
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Southeast Community Development Corporation, a non-profit organization in Southeast Fort Worth, Texas, as they host their 2nd Annual Pathway‘s Banquet, highlighting the work of local leaders for their contributions to empowering our local youth and adults."
Recognizing The Leadership And Dedication Of Dr. Ron & Mary Thomas To The University Of Puget Sound And The Greater Tacoma Community May 3, 2016
Derek Kilmer, D-WA
"Mr. Speaker, during his tenure at UPS, Dr. Thomas helped create the “Tacoma Public Schools Commitment,” which created a clear pathway for local students to attend this private, liberal-arts education at an affordable price. Given the community’s diversity and challenges in paying for higher education, this initiative will help grow future generations of engaged and educated citizens of Tacoma."
