Entry Title Date
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 4, 2015
Tim Kaine, D-VA
"Prior to the interim negotiation in November of 2013, and even in the face of a punishing international sanctions regime, Iran’s nuclear program was marching ahead. Iran had amassed more than 19,000 centrifuges to enrich uranium, and that number was growing. Iran had produced more than 11,000 kilograms of enriched uranium, and that stockpile was growing. Iran had perfected the ability to enrich uranium to the 20-percent level, and that enrichment level was growing. Iran was constructing a heavy-water facility at Arak capable of producing weapons-grade plutonium, and Iran only allowed limited IAEA access to its declared nuclear facilities, shielding its operation and inspection of covert nuclear sites."
James L. Oberstar Memorial Post Office Building July 13, 2015
Daniel Lipinski, D-IL
"Jim was known for his love of the French language, and he spoke it flawlessly. What fewer people know is that Jim perfected his French while serving in a volunteer program that preceded the Peace Corps. He was teaching French and Creole to Americans helping out in Haiti."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Motion To Proceed May 6, 2015
Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI
"If we do not act soon to cut carbon pollution, we can reasonably expect the consequences to be dire. Yet, the fossil fuel industry continues its crafty, cynical campaign of denial and delay. Big Coal, Oil and Natural Gas, and related industries, such as the Koch brothers’ companies, profit by offloading the costs of their carbon pollution onto the rest of us. They traffic in products that put health and safety at risk, and they don’t tell the truth about their products. Sound familiar? Well, it should because the fossil fuel industry is using a familiar playbook, one perfected by the tobacco industry. Following this same playbook, Big Tobacco fought for more than four decades to bury the truth about the health effects of its product."
Honoring Israel’S 67Th Independence Day April 27, 2015
Lois Frankel, D-FL
"Israel also perfected seawater desalination which it is sharing today with California to help them during their drought. In fact, an Israeli company is helping to build what will become the largest desalination plant in the Western Hemisphere just north of San Diego."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act April 23, 2015
Tim Kaine, D-VA
"But this is fundamentally a negotiation about what Iran must do to get out from under sanctions that Congress has constructed, that Congress has imposed, and that Congress has perfected and approved over the years. If that is the negotiation, there is no way to have an ultimate deal about the unwinding and eventual repeal of a congressional sanctions statute without congressional review. So Congress is necessary to this deal."
