Entry Title Date
Nomination Of Vivek Hallegere Murthy To Be Medical Director In The Regular Corps Of The Public Health Service, Subject To Qualifications Therefor As Provided By Law And Regulations, And To Be… December 15, 2014
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"If you think this is hard to understand or follow, imagine what we have seen over the last 2 years. It has been about 540 days since the Senate passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill with 68 votes. Fourteen Republicans and the Democrats passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill that had the strongest border protection in the history of the United States. It would have virtually created a seamless fence—literally and figuratively—on the border between the United States and Mexico from San Diego to Galveston. It would have put more technology and more people on the border. Under this bill, the people on the border who are working for us to stop illegal immigration would have been able to literally stand and see another person standing half a mile away along the 2,000-mile border, 24/7. That is how many people were in this bill. We passed it with 68 votes. It was lauded by conservatives and liberals, the chamber of commerce, the AFL-CIO, faith groups, justice groups. They all said this is a good bill."

Housing Assistance Efficiency Act December 2, 2014
Scott Peters, D-CA
"H.R. 2790, the Housing Assistance Efficiency Act, would remedy both these problems, would make HUD a more efficient agency and get homelessness assistance to those that need it more quickly.

In Recognition Of El Catano “La Casita” Community Garden December 2, 2014
Charles Rangel, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, today I rise to recognize El Catano, affectionately known as “La Casita” Community Garden, which celebration took place on Saturday, June 7th in celebration of the 2014 National Puerto Rican Day Parade. In 1994, Jose and his sister Esther Reyes decided to look for an empty lot to start a community garden. The garden would be named after the Town of Catano, which is located across from the bay of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The lot was a rat infested dumping ground for garbage, needles and crack vials, before Jose and Esther took on the challenge and collected over 200 signatures throughout the immediate neighborhood to acquire the lot in support of a community garden. Support grew from community organizations and businesses, which enabled Jose and Esther to acquire the lot and to clean it. In 1995, La Casita de Catano Community Garden was born."
