Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Rebuilding Our Nation’S Infrastructure June 24, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Mr. Speaker, there has been a flurry of activity regarding infrastructure funding in recent days. We had the first hearing in the Ways and Means Committee in the 55 months since my Republican friends took over to deal with transportation finance. There have been press conferences and proposals, and actually, a few other hearings have been scheduled."
Daca Anniversary June 18, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"If my Republican friends wish to change our immigration policies, they have a perfect vehicle, Mr. Speaker, for doing so: a comprehensive immigration reform bill supported, in my opinion, by a majority of the House of Representatives. Let’s bring such a bill to the floor so that we can fix our broken immigration system and create a pathway to citizenship for these DREAMers and others who have been living and working here for almost all their lives."
Legislative Program June 18, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"In fact, that is what happened; but if you look at your Cut, Cap, and Balance bill—your bill I voted against—the fallback that you suggested was sequestration. That was about a week before Mr. Lew said to Mr. Reid that maybe that will get our Republican friends to support paying the national debt."
End Immigrant Family Detention June 17, 2015
Luis Gutierrez, D-IL
"But with my Republican friends, it is usually not the human cost that matters. So let me break it down another way."
Transportation Funding June 15, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Now, there is a little hint of sunshine here because this week, on Wednesday, we will be having the first hearing on transportation finance since my Republican friends took control of Congress 56 months ago."
