Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, I will insert into the Record a copy of a letter to Speaker John Boehner from Mr. Van Hollen, Ms. Rosa DeLauro, and myself on this issue."
Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act—Motion To Proceed September 22, 2015
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"It is incredible to me that, in 2015, we are debating Federal funding for one of the Nation’s largest and most trusted providers of basic health care. For nearly 100 years, Planned Parenthood has provided women’s health care and has enjoyed the leadership and support of great Americans like the civil rights leader, Rosa Parks, who was a member of the organization’s board of advocates."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3134, Defund Planned Parenthood Act Of 2015; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3504, Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; And For Other Purposes September 17, 2015
Jim McGovern, D-MA
"It is interesting. I watched the Republican debate last night. It was really quite entertaining. I heard Donald Trump and Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz say that they would be open to putting civil rights activist Rosa Parks on the $10 bill, but Republicans might be surprised to learn that Rosa Parks sat on the national board of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the organization that my Republican friends, including the people who invoked her name last night, are now trying to defund."
Commemorating The Centennial Anniversary Of Okaloosa County, Florida September 16, 2015
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"Okaloosa County is situated along Florida’s Gulf Coast and was established in 1915 through legislation sponsored by then-Florida State Representative William Mapoles from Laurel Hill. It is the 52nd county in Florida, flanked by Santa Rosa and Walton counties, and was carved out of portions of both counties. Sharing the namesake of a steamboat, “The Okaloosa,” meaning “Black Water” in Choctaw, Okaloosa County once consisted of small outposts and pioneers in Florida’s wilderness, and its main economic drivers at the time of its founding were lumber, turpentine, and fishing."
Celebrating The Ninetieth Birthday Of Northwest Florida’S Beloved Oakland Ard September 16, 2015
Jeff Miller, R-FL
"Oakland also contributed to the Northwest Florida community in myriad other ways. He was appointed by the Florida Legislature to the Board of Directors of Jay Hospital, served nearly two decades as a board member of the State Housing Initiative Program, and was a longtime member of the Board of Directors of the Santa Rosa County Chamber of Commerce. In addition, the people of Jay also elected him to the Jay City Council, where he served for four years."
