Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Branch Appropriations Act, 2016 May 19, 2015
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-FL
"Mr. Chairman, I will point out that the gentleman’s amendment does not actually stop the printing of the pictorial directory. It simply stops the delivery of the directory to Members’ offices. So it does not provide the savings that the gentleman is talking about. It provides between $9,000 and $29,000 because the only cost that he is saving is on the delivery and not on the printing."
Recognizing The 130Th Anniversary Of Second Baptist Church Of Los Angeles May 12, 2015
Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-CA
"Second Baptist Church has also played an active role in our nation’s long and ongoing dialogue about civil rights. In 1954, Second Baptist members raised $1,500 for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund to pay for printing the legal briefs for the Brown vs. Board of Education case, which desegregated America’s schools. The church also hosted the NAACP’s national conventions in 1928, 1942, and 1949."
Wasteful Spending May 11, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"Another thing he did, he said: Let’s look at our printing costs. The State had its own printing operation. He said: Let’s shop around and see if the private sector can do this more effectively and efficiently. Of course, they did find a private vendor in Indiana that did it much more effectively."
Honoring Vietnam Veterans And North Dakota’S Soldiers Who Lost Their Lives In Vietnam May 11, 2015
Heidi Heitkamp, D-ND
"At College High School in Valley City, his friends called him Willie. He participated in journalism, printing, basketball, football, and intramural sports."
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."
