Entry Title Date
Remembering William White June 24, 2015
Tammy Duckworth, D-IL
"Born in 1930, in Brooklyn, Bill started out selling printing presses in New York. Eventually, he would join forces with his brother Tom to build some of New York City’s most impressive restaurants."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2822, Department Of The Interior, Environment, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2042, Ratepayer Protection Act… June 24, 2015
Jared Polis, D-CO
"FiberLok in Fort Collins is a specialty-based printing company in my district that provides heat transfer graphic products like computer mouses and drink coaster rugs. It is family-owned with 70 employees, and about 40 percent of its business is international. They sell worldwide, including Germany, Mexico, and the U.K. In 2008, the company discovered Export-Import Bank through a direct mail campaign that targeted small businesses, and they have been using the small business multibuyer credit insurance since, and through that, with the help of that program, export sales have grown 15 to 20 percent, and the Bank has supported over 2.7 million of FiberLok’s exports."
Recognizing The Life Of Janusz Borzuchowski June 24, 2015
Marcy Kaptur, D-OH
"As the Polish motto, “For Our Freedom—and Yours,” slowly resurrected itself from behind the Iron Curtain, Janusz went on to be a key clandestine figure in the Solidarity movement in Eastern Poland. Working out of Bialystok, he was in charge of collecting money to support the cause—distributing in the process beautiful clandestine postage stamps for secret sale among liberty’s partisans—and secretly running the region’s printing press from one of his apartments."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions June 23, 2015
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"I would like to point out that between the printing of this chart and today, two additional rural hospitals have closed. That alone is a clear indication of the problem I am trying to convey."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 17, 2015
Mark Warner, D-VA
"I mentioned that 5 years ago no one had even heard of Airbnb or Uber. And while we don’t know what the disruptive technology of tomorrow might look like, we know developments such as driverless cars, same-day drone deliveries, and 3-D printing are right around the corner. Some version is here to stay. As policymakers, we need to ask the right questions, discuss the appropriate rules of the road, and know when we need to get out of the way. Instead of trying to make this new economy look like the old, Washington should encourage more of this innovation, and we need to work to create more opportunities and more upward economic mobility for everybody."
