Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Save American Workers Act Of 2014 April 3, 2014
Charlie Dent, R-PA
"In my district, let me tell you who is affected by this. Cafeteria workers who work in school districts, like East Penn School District or the Southern Lehigh School District, they are getting their hours reduced below 30."
Sexual Assault Awareness Month April 3, 2014
Pat Meehan, R-PA
"We are using the experiences that we have from experts at local colleges like Drexel, Villanova, and Penn State and campus experts who have worked in this area on the campuses. We are seeing some issues that need to be addressed."
Legislative Session April 2, 2014
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"Ridership demand in and out of Manhattan is actually predicted to double in the coming decades—double. It is critical for the economic health of our region to accommodate this increase and ensure that urgently needed growth and the safety and security of so many Americans. The Gateway project itself would build two new rail tunnels from New Jersey to New York City and expand Penn Station in New York to handle all of this additional capacity. This project alone would create thousands and thousands of jobs. It would reduce commuter times and make traveling by rail more flexible and, very importantly to resident after resident who has reached out to me, it would make it more reliable. This critical investment will drive economic growth throughout that entire region."
Minimum Wage Fairness Act—Motion To Proceed March 31, 2014
Robert Menendez, D-NJ
"I realize it is uncommon to make a live unanimous consent request for a commemorative resolution, but if Republicans are going to object yet again—for an eighth year in a row—to honoring, in my view, a great American hero, I really want it to be on the record. I think Republicans need to answer to the American people as to why, as a party, they can agree to passing resolutions honoring World Plumbing Day or congratulating the Penn State Dance Marathon—both Senate resolutions that were adopted this month by unanimous consent—but insist on standing in the way of honoring a civil rights trailblazer who changed the course of our Nation’s history."
Congratulating The Pennsylvania University Nitanny Lion Fencing Team For Winning 13Th National Title March 26, 2014
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"On the individual level, Kaito Streets, a sophomore, claimed the men’s sabre NCAA championship, becoming the 13th individual champion for the team. As a result of this title win, Penn State fencing is now the winningest fencing program in the NCAA."
