Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Payday Lending Regulations April 16, 2015
Terri Sewell, D-AL
"In March, I welcomed President Obama to the city of Birmingham, in my district, where he highlighted our Nation’s economic recovery and put a spotlight on the areas that needed the most improvement. The President highlighted the urgent need for better regulations of the payday lending industry—the very same day that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau unveiled proposals to rein in this loosely regulated industry."
Justice For Victims Of Trafficking Act Of 2015—Continued April 16, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"But I note that the majority leader is once again choosing not to move to the nomination of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General. It has been more than 5 months—it will be 6 months in a week or 10 days—since President Obama nominated her. Her nomination has been on the Senate calendar for 49 days, longer than the last 7 Attorney General nominations combined."
Celebrating The 150Th Anniversary Of Bowie State University April 16, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"Last year, I joined President Obama in Prince George’s County, Maryland, to highlight a $7 million Youth Career Connect grant that was made possible through an innovative partnership between the County’s public schools, Lockheed Martin, and Bowie State University’s Maryland Center to grow the pipeline of students pursuing college degrees and STEM-related careers. The University is playing a major role in growing Maryland’s high-skill workforce for the twenty-first century, and I am excited for what the future holds."
The War On Coal April 16, 2015
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"It is 292 words that were already in statute. The President has turned it into a 130-page regulation that he is implementing on the country—hundreds more pages of technical support documents going behind that. This is what President Obama’s constitutional law professor had to say."
Nuclear Agreement With Iran April 16, 2015
Dan Sullivan, R-AK
"What is very interesting about this is that once upon a time, even President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and former Senator Clinton all believed this body should have a role in such important agreements. They said Congress should approve any sweeping deals. In 2007 and 2008, they cosponsored a bill that required congressional approval of any long-term security commitment President Bush made to Iraq."
