Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Morning Business August 6, 2015
Michael Enzi, R-WY
"Mr. President, Congress needs to find a fiscally-responsible solution to wildfire funding and fire borrowing. While the Forest Service still has half a billion dollars remaining for fire suppression, there are years when firefighting costs exceed predicted funding levels. We need a focused discussion on this issue and I plan to begin the conversation with key offices and States—Wyoming, Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, Alaska, Washington, California, Nevada, Montana, Colorado, and others that would like to join and will be constructive to its resolution. I know there are differences of opinion out there as to how to solve this problem, but the key to solving it is getting everyone in a room to discuss it. As cap adjustments are under the jurisdiction of the Budget Committee, I look forward to working with my colleagues on a durable and long-lasting solution that fits our fiscal priorities and is responsible budgeting."

Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, with this agreement, we set up expedited consideration of the cyber bill and the Iran resolution. The Senate will hold voice votes on Executive nominations, but there will be no further rollcall votes this week."
Senate Resolution 245—Designating The Week Beginning September 13, 2015, As “National Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week” August 5, 2015
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"Mr. President, I rise today to submit, with my colleague Senator Collins, a resolution designating the week beginning September 13, 2015, as “National Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week.” The Senate has passed a similar resolution each year for the past seven years, and National Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week holds special significance this year as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, ADA."
Appropriations August 5, 2015
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"I congratulate Chairman Cochran and his subcommittee chairs for a full and open process. They worked hand in hand with me and my ranking Democratic members. But their bills are based on the postsequester levels of the Republican budget resolution. The bills reported by the committee are too spartan to meet the needs of the American people."
