Entry Title Date
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."
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."
Morning Business March 10, 2014
Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI
"So-called climategate was actually looked at over and over again. Because it was at the University of East Anglia, the University of East Anglia did an investigation. Because it involved scientists at Penn State, Penn State did an investigation. Both of those universities gave a complete clean bill of health to the underlying science that was at the base of this."
Celebrating The Centennial Of The Cooperative Extension Service March 5, 2014
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"Madam Speaker, today, the Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences is on the Hill with agricultural businesses and industry advocates to share with us the importance of the Cooperative Extension Service."
