Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Regarding H. Res. 707 September 19, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Mr. Speaker, I rise as a cosponsor in support of H. Res. 707, a resolution condemning all forms of anti-Semitism. I also rise to spotlight the troubling and rising tide of hate crimes against Jews that has recently begun sweeping the globe. There have been violent attacks against Jews in the Middle East, death threats in Latin America, synagogues fire-bombed in Europe and the desecration of the property of Jews in North Africa."
Recognizing National Pow/Mia Recognition Day September 19, 2014
Derek Kilmer, D-WA
"Whereas, the surviving brothers and sisters in arms of the fallen resolve steadfast to forge a new commitment year after year in pursuit of resolution and remembrance of those no longer with us; now, therefore, I, Derek Kilmer, Representative of Washington State’s Sixth Congressional District, hereby proclaim the continued gratitude for those men and women who have served before us, and for those who continue the search for our servicemembers who are not forgotten on this POW/MIA Recognition Day."
Another Continuing Resolution September 19, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Mr. Speaker, today I reluctantly voted for another Continuing Resolution to ensure funding for government programs in Fiscal Year 2015. It’s a low bar and a sad metric when preventing another government shutdown is hailed as an accomplishment. What Congress needs to be doing—and what the American public deserves—is a return to regular order instead of governing on autopilot. We should pass all 12 of our appropriations bills because Congress needs to make thoughtful changes to our spending so they reflect the challenges and priorities of the day."
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 19, 2014
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I support the inclusion of additional funding for the United States Office of Special Counsel, “OSC” in section 124 of H.J. Res. 124. There is a critical need for ongoing oversight of the Department of Veterans Affairs, “VA.” This section of the Continuing Resolution recognizes that need by providing an increase in funding for the OSC."
Introduction Of The 10-20-30 Act Of 2014 September 19, 2014
James Clyburn, D-SC
"The legislation I am introducing today would expand 10-20-30 to other federal agencies. In 2011, I joined with our former Republican colleague, then-Representative Jo Ann Emerson of Missouri, to introduce an amendment to the Continuing Resolution that would have continued 10-20-30 for rural development and expanded it to 11 additional accounts throughout the federal government affecting economic development, education, job training, health, justice, the environment, and more. This bill would apply 10-20-30 to these accounts for the next 10 years."
