Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Fraud Reduction And Data Analytics Act Of 2015 June 21, 2016
Will Hurd, R-TX
"The current reactive antifraud measures require agencies to spend time and resources on efforts to track and recover these fraud-related overpayments. S. 2133 will help to prevent these fraudulent payments from being made in the first place."
Fema Disaster Assistance Reform Act Of 2015 February 29, 2016
Garret Graves, R-LA
"The problem with the United States disaster management policy is that it is backward. It is entirely reactive. Rather than going in before a disaster happens and making areas more resilient, making our ecosytem more resilient, making our economy more resilient, we are dead set on this process of coming in after disasters and spending exponentially more dollars."
Federal Reserve Transparency Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed January 12, 2016
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"As my colleagues have already spoken to, to some extent, we already see the effects of this nuclear deal in Iran’s actions. On December 28, Iran shipped over 25,000 pounds of low-enriched uranium to Russia, including the removal of all of Iran’s nuclear material enriched to 20 percent that was not already fabricated into reactive fuel. We know this was one path for Iran to get a nuclear weapon. They have removed this low-enriched uranium. It is in Russia."
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."
