Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Internal Revenue Service April 15, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"It should be noted that it is not the IRS that makes the Tax Code complex; it is Congress that makes the Tax Code complex, a Congress that is sometimes so late in meeting its obligations with tax changes that the Service has difficulty even printing the forms on time as these changes occur every single year."
Eliminate Privacy Notice Confusion Act April 13, 2015
Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO
"This outdated requirement doesn’t cost in postage alone, but it also adds its compliance costs, the cost of supplies, printing fees, and man hours. Under current law, financial institutions are required to provide annual privacy notices explaining information-sharing practices to customers. Banks and credit unions have had to give these notices each year even if the privacy policies have not changed. This creates not only waste for financial institutions but confusion and increased costs to consumers."
Congratulating Anomatic Corporation On Its 50Th Anniversary March 16, 2015
Rob Portman, R-OH
"Anomatic’s in-house capabilities include full package design, high volume anodizing, rapid 3D prototyping, metal stamping, screen printing, double anodizing, laser engraving, and assembly. Anomatic also features the world’s largest anodizing capacity, producing more than 1 billion units last year alone."
Happy Birthday To Gpo March 4, 2015
Robert Brady, D-PA
"Mr. Speaker, on March 4, 1861, the Government Printing Office (GPO), as it was then known, opened its doors and began fulfilling an essential mission for the American people. On March 4, 2015, 154 years later, the newly renamed Government Publishing Office continues to perform that mission: producing and disseminating the official documents of this Congress and the executive and judicial branches to keep America informed. This is not merely my opinion as a proud supporter of the GPO and its talented workforce, but also the conclusion of a 2013 report of the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) requested by Congress."
Tribute To Dan Hammer March 3, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"Born and raised in San Jose, Dan attended UC Santa Cruz before moving to Boston to manage an antiwar printing press. He returned to the San Francisco Bay area soon afterwards, where he cut his editing teeth as a typesetter for Rolling Stone magazine."
