Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Stevens Institute Of Technology Wins The Department Of Energy’S Solar Decathlon November 19, 2015
Albio Sires, D-NJ
"The SURE HOUSE is a solar powered home that is also able to withstand Hurricane-force winds and flooding. Inspired by the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy it is meant to act as a new housing prototype for shore communities. The SURE HOUSE was ranked highest in several categories and uses almost 90 percent less energy than conventional homes. It can also provide emergency power to surrounding neighborhoods after a storm. The building will be taken back to New Jersey to act as an emergency management and coastal resiliency center along the Jersey shore."
Honoring Peter Dipaola November 17, 2015
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"As Town Supervisor, Peter has worked diligently to maintain the beauty and charm that has defined Pelham for decades. In spite of state mandated tax caps, he has overseen a redesign and improvement of the Town Court, a renovation of Gazebo Park, an expansion of the offerings by the Pelham Recreation Department, as well as an improvement of town services and programs, all while staying under the 2 percent tax cap. He has also worked hard to obtain vital funding through local, state, and federal grants, some of which my office has helped procure, for initiatives ranging from Superstorm Sandy repairs to improvements to Trotta Park. Peter’s ability to deliver the services Pelham’s residents have come to expect from their local government, while exhibiting strict fiscal responsibility, has been masterful, and as Pelham’s Congressman I have always counted myself fortunate to have such a wonderful partner in government."
Trade Act Of 2015 October 29, 2015
Robert Menendez, D-NJ
"Mr. President, I rise on the third anniversary of Superstorm Sandy to reflect on where we have been, how far we have come, and what is still left to accomplish, and to praise the people of New Jersey who have remained New Jersey proud and New Jersey strong during this long, 3-year recovery process. But, most importantly, it is to remind everyone in this Chamber and all around the Nation that the job isn’t done yet. Many people believe that this is over and that everyone just moved on, but I know that for many Sandy victims, that is not the case."
Social Media Working Group Act Of 2015 October 28, 2015
Ryan Costello, R-PA
"Social media has become an essential tool in the preparedness, response, and recovery for all hazards, whether natural or manmade. We saw how critical social media was in relaying information following Hurricane Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, and, just a few weeks ago, during Hurricane Joaquin and the historic flooding in South Carolina. Social media helps reach people in need, helps get the right information into the hands of the public, helps organize volunteers, and can be a source of critical on-the-ground information to decisionmakers."
Superstorm Sandy Relief And Disaster Loan Program Improvement Act Of 2015 October 21, 2015
David Vitter, R-LA
"Mr. President, in the small business committee, we have been working on significant legislation that goes to disaster recovery, the Superstorm Sandy Relief and Disaster Loan Program Improvement Act. We are ready to move that legislation and pass it through the entire Senate."
