Entry Title Date
Unanimous Consent Agreements—Executive Calendar April 11, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that all postcloture time now be considered expired, and that on Monday, April 28, at 5:30 p.m., the Senate proceed to vote with no intervening action or debate on Calendar No. 574; further, that upon disposition of the nomination, the Senate proceed to vote on cloture on Executive Calendar No. 613, and that if cloture is invoked, all postcloture time be yielded back, and the Senate proceed to vote on confirmation of the nomination; that if confirmed the motions to reconsider be considered made and laid upon the table with no intervening action or debate; that no further motions be in order to the nominations; that any statements related to the nominations be printed in the Record; and that President Obama be immediately notified of the Senate’s action."
National Crime Victims’ Rights Week April 11, 2014
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"I was also extremely proud when the Leahy-Crapo Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 was signed into law last year by President Obama. This is legislation, which I introduced with Senator Crapo, reauthorized the critical Violence Against Women Act, or VAWA. When we enacted VAWA 20 years ago, it sent a powerful message that we will not tolerate crimes against women, and the law forever altered the way our Nation combats domestic and sexual violence. Just as it did nearly 20 years ago, this reauthorization offers support to the victims of these terrible crimes and helps them find safety and rebuild their lives. It was crafted with a great deal of input from victims and the tireless professionals who work to support them every day, and I am grateful for their support and assistance."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Roger Williams, R-TX
"As a businessowner of 42 years, I know what it means to meet the bottom line and live within my means, both in my business and in my family. Unfortunately, America hasn’t lived within its means for years, and we are nearing the tipping point. But President Obama and the Democrats in Congress want to push us nearer to the edge rather than rein us back in by spending money we just don’t have and growing government with massive, government-run programs like ObamaCare. "
Nomination Of Michelle T. Friedland To Be United States Circuit Judge For The Ninth Circuit—Resumed April 10, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Madam President, I have just a couple of brief observations that are relevant to the point. No. 1, we have approved more judges at this point for President Obama than President Bush had approved at the same time in his Presidency."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Steve Scalise, R-LA
"Our budget balances by year 4. In 2018, we have a balanced Federal budget. If you compare that with President Obama’s budget, he has got a budget that has over $1 trillion in new taxes."
