Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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."
Revitalize American Manufacturing And Innovation Act Of 2014 September 15, 2014
Daniel Lipinski, D-IL
"In fact, just a few months ago I was pleased to join in the announcement of the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute in Chicago. This public-private initiative, hosted by the University of Illinois offshoot Ul Labs, has leveraged a $70 million federal investment to achieve a commitment of $250 million from industry, academia, government and community partners that will harness expertise and facilities to improve manufacturing processes and innovation and design capabilities to a wide range of stakeholders. One of the greatest attributes of these institutes will be the openness of the system, allowing small- and medium-sized enterprises the opportunity to use novel and often capital-intensive capabilities, such as 3D printing and high-performance computing, to improve their product lines, develop new innovations and make their factories more efficient."
Immigration Policy August 5, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"Now consider what will happen to our system if the President goes through with his plan to provide work authorizations for another 5 million people living illegally in the United States. What immigration law will be left, colleagues? The government is not enforcing visa overstays, illegal entries, illegal work, or asylum fraud. And now the President is just going to start printing millions of work permits for people illegally in the country—after Congress has loudly declared “no.”"
Federal Register Modernization Act July 14, 2014
Darrell Issa, R-CA
"The Modernization Act seeks to do two things: one, simply lower the cost for printing, which is no longer necessary in a digital age, and, in fact, to open the door for what I believe is the modernization that goes beyond that."
