Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
The Hudson River School Of Painting April 8, 2014
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"My colleagues from New York and I—both Democratic and Republican—have united many times to fight for causes that are critical for our State. In the wake of terrible tragedies, like September 11, 2001, and, most recently, Hurricane Sandy, we have come together to perform our most important duties as Members of Congress, which is our obligation to do what is best for the people of New York."
The Four Principles Of Conservatism April 8, 2014
Steve King, R-IA
"Governor Chris Christie had a problem with the traffic being closed on a bridge, and it created a national furor, but within a week, the Holder Justice Department was investigating Governor Chris Christie for his use of the funds for the Sandy relief fund."
Remembering The Passage Of The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act April 4, 2014
Colleen Hanabusa, D-HI
"We cannot continue to ignore Virginia Tech; Fort Hood; what our colleagues Gabby Gifford and Ron Barber endured; Aurora, Colorado; Sandy Hook; Washington Navy Yard; Littleton; and Fort Hood again, just to name a few. These incidents—the families, communities, the friends—cry for action."
Climate Change April 2, 2014
Julia Brownley, D-CA
"Climate change threatens our coastal communities through ocean acidification and sea level rise. It threatens our big cities by making extreme weather events, like Hurricane Sandy, more frequent and more intense. It threatens all of us who rely on rain to water our crops or on snow for our drinking water."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act Of 2014 April 2, 2014
Mark Udall, D-CO
"When the Northeast was rocked by Superstorm Sandy in 2012, a majority of the Congress stood together to fund relief and recovery efforts, not because it benefited their State or because they expected anything in return, but because it was simply the right thing to do. Similarly, when Hurricane Katrina devastated the gulf coast in 2005, we united to support our fellow Americans who lost their homes and livelihoods in the hurricane and its aftermath. And when ice jams just last year caused the Yukon River to spill its banks, flooding Galena, AK, and the surrounding towns, Congress stood as one to provide aid and assistance for those in need."
