Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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."
Playing Politics For The Camera June 24, 2014
Steve King, R-IA
"As technology developed, they had the printing press. The printing press allowed for newspaper to be printed in a limited form, in a compressed and compact form. And as that message went out across the country, sometimes it took weeks for the actions here in Congress to penetrate into the public. And by then, there was another wave of action and another wave of action, an entirely different rhythm here in Congress as compared to the rhythm that we have here. I think the pace of what we do in this Congress is related to the ability to translate a message out to the American people and out to the world."
Recognizing Mr. Lewis Driskell, Sr. For His Exemplary Leadership And Dedicated Commitment To Community June 9, 2014
Dan Kildee, D-MI
"Mr. Speaker, I ask the House of Representatives to join me in recognizing Mr. Lewis Driskell, Sr., a community leader in the City of Flint with more than 50 years of experience in the printing profession. Mr. Driskell graduated from Tuskegee Institute in 1955 with many awards to his credit, including the “Most Outstanding Student in Graphic Arts” from the Mercantile Paper Company. Following gradation he relocated to Flint and worked with three major printing establishments before forming his own company, Union Printing. Mr. Driskell is driven by a strong belief of giving service to his community. In 1969 he was elected president of Flint Printers Local 282. In 1989, he received the State of Michigan’s “Outstanding Minority Business Entrepreneur” Award and the “Sydney B. Melet Humanitarian Award”. In addition, in 1990, he received the Charles Stewart Mott “Citizen of the Year” Award from the Flint Chamber of Commerce and the Paul Harris Award from the Rotary Club of Flint. His caring is further exemplified in the number of organizations for which he served as a policy maker. These organizations include: The Urban League of Flint, Greater Flint Opportunities Industrialization Center, Hurley Hospital Authority, Uptown Reinvestment, Planned Parenthood, Career Alliance, Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, and as founder of the Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce. Moreover, his lifetime commitments, national and international are to: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Rotary International, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the Tuskegee University Alumni Club—Flint Chapter. Now retired, Lewis enjoys spending time with his wife, Lois, their children and grandchildren. Mr. Speaker, I applaud Mr. Lewis Driskell for his strong leadership and unwavering commitment to our community."
