Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 September 24, 2015
Amy Klobuchar, D-MN
"Congress intentionally included strong enforceability elements into the Clean Air Act statute. Regulations promulgated under the Clean Air Act aimed to protect human health and the environment by reducing nitrogen oxide and other pollutants. Motor vehicles are the primary source of nitrogen oxide pollution from transportation. These highly reactive gases play a major role in atmospheric reactions that produce smog."
Cyber Security September 16, 2015
Steve Daines, R-MT
"Our government needs to stop being content with simply being reactive to serious cyber threats. There are no deterrents or consequences to these foreign attackers. Not one person at the Department of Energy has faced consequences. The CIO of the Office of Personnel Management, or OPM, remains in charge after one of the largest hacks on Federal employees."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015—Continued September 16, 2015
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"Our involvement in each of those situations and others was, it seems to me, far too ad hoc, far too reactive to certain events. Our actions have not been consistent; they have not been predictable; they have not advanced a unified strategy; they have not been a part of a coherent strategy designed to reduce tensions and strife, to reduce our direct involvement in the region. Our policies have not resulted in a containment or a reduction of terrorism and extremism."
Approval Of Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action September 11, 2015
Chris Gibson, R-NY
"I am afraid that this deal could hasten the pace to war, not end the threat of it. But this can be prevented. We can return to the negotiating table and engage from a position of strength. We can do so through stronger diplomacy; a more credible and consistent military posturing that does not appear haphazard and reactive; we can enact stronger sanctions, if needed; and finally, we must be willing to stick to a true red line and say no to a bad deal. I plead with my colleagues in the United States Congress, as well as President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and others in this Administration: do not go ahead with this ill-fated and weak deal that hurts our national and international security."
Nuclear Negotiations With Iran July 8, 2015
Carlos Curbelo, R-FL
"Snapback sanctions relief could be difficult to implement and is not in the best interests of the United States. We must protect the sanctions infrastructure that this body put in place rather than rely on reactive tactics if the Iranian regime does not comply with the terms of the agreement."
