Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Equality For All December 1, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"Rogers, last week, argued that Congress could not block funding for Obama’s executive amnesty because the agency that will be printing the work authorization and other documents for illegal aliens—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)—operates primarily on fees it collects rather than from tax revenue collected by the Federal Government."

Tribute To Jerry Linnell September 18, 2014
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"Today, I thank one such individual, Jerry Linnell, for 32 years of exemplary service to the Senate and the American people. Jerry is retiring at the end of the month. Jerry joined the staff of the U.S. Senate’s Official Reporters of Debates in 1982 and became the Chief Reporter of Debates in 1999. For those people who may be unfamiliar with the Reporters’ office, it is charged with producing a verbatim account of everything that happens here on the floor of the Senate. Even with modern technology employed, that is a daunting task requiring a team of eight skilled reporters who take turns transcribing every word that we Senators utter on the floor. They have to be able to decipher our accents and occasional creative use of the English language, and they have to withstand filibusters. It is a mentally and physically challenging job. The Reporters the Senate employs are highly experienced professionals who take pride in their work. The Office has 15 people overall and a designee from the Government Printing Office, GPO; collectively, they are responsible for producing the Senate’s portion of the Congressional Record. The Congressional Record is one of the crucial documents of our government."
Federal Records Accountability Act Of 2014 September 16, 2014
Elijah Cummings, D-MD
"Another concern that has been raised with this bill is that, in attempts to restrict the manner in which the President and Vice President create records, the bill says the President and Vice President or a covered employee may not create or send a Presidential or Vice Presidential record using a nonofficial electronic messaging account unless the President or Vice President or covered employee takes certain steps. Those steps include copying an official email account, forwarding a copy of the email to an official account, or printing the email and properly archiving it."
