Entry Title Date
Honoring Albert M. Elias October 22, 2015
Raúl Grijalva, D-AZ
"Albert, a fourth-generation Tucson native, joined the International Typographical Union of his maternal grandfather Francisco S. Moreno in January 1954 and committed himself to a career in the printing trade. Albert believed that union membership would improve the professional quality of his work as a printer, and enable him to develop meaningful, long-term relationships in his community that would benefit himself and his family, as well as his union brothers and sisters. Union membership, he believed, also would provide him with better income and with vacations and holidays off to spend quality time with his family. It was Albert’s goal to provide his children with the wherewithal to excel in education through high school and go on to college if they desired. Time proved Albert to be correct. All three of the children of he and his wife, Viola Baine, are college graduates who are serving others in pursuit of their careers."
Recognizing The Opening Of The Richard And Gina Santori Library Of Aurora, Illinois June 12, 2015
Bill Foster, D-IL
"With the opening of the new library in downtown Aurora, the Aurora Public Library has embraced the challenges and opportunities of the next century. The building will feature a “Makers Space” on the first floor with a 3D printer, laser cutter, vinyl cutter, plotter printer, computers with CAD, CAM, Adobe Cloud and other creation software for students and community members to experiment and train with modern manufacturing tools. It will also feature an audio/visual library, the Kiwanis Club of Aurora Children’s Library, and a Teen Space with a state-of-the-art media studio. These new resources will allow the Aurora Public Library to continue its mission and serve the new needs of our community."
Happy Birthday To Gpo March 4, 2015
Robert Brady, D-PA
"As I noted in the House Administration Committee’s activities report for 2014 (H. Rept. 113-721), I was pleased that Congress honored the request of Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks, first made to the Committee in 2013, for statutory redesignation of GPO as the Government Publishing Office. This long-overdue change rightly proclaims to the American people how Congress and the President view the agency."
Department Of Homeland Security Funding February 4, 2015
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"Remember, because of our intelligence apparatus, working through liaison partners in other countries, about 2 years ago a cartridge in a printer was discovered ultimately going onto an airplane that was bound for the United States—that was a nonmetallic explosive. We were fortunate we got that, but they continue."
Proposing An Amendment To The Constitution Of The United States Relating To Contributions And Expenditures Intended To Affect Elections—Motion To Proceed September 10, 2014
Jeff Flake, R-AZ
"What does it mean to “influence elections,” as the bill states? Who is a “candidate”? What is the “press”? Does this include bloggers? What about a citizen who writes his or her own newsletter to their community association and prints it on her home printer? All of these terms and more seem ripe for litigation, which leaves the true meaning of this amendment in the hands of unelected judges. "
