Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Immigration November 19, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"The labor force participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent in 6 of the last 12 months, but prior to last October had not fallen that low since 1978, which, hypothetically or parenthetically, was during the august—I say sarcastically for those on the left that don’t know sarcasm—days of the American economy during President Carter’s glorious years as President."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 5682, Approval Of The Keystone Xl Pipeline November 13, 2014
Kevin Cramer, R-ND
"Now, the environmental safeguards in the Keystone pipeline—I said it is the most studied pipeline in the history of the world—they are rigorous and they are appropriate. They have been tested and they work. I can attest to that. I toured the Keystone during construction, and I met many of the men and women who worked on the line. Those, Mr. Speaker, are real jobs. Those pipe layers are real workers doing real jobs. The restaurant owners, the hotel owners, the retailers, the subcontractors, those are real jobs, and they should not be diminished by considering them something other than real jobs. We have the lowest workforce participation rate since 1978 in this country. Let’s put people back to work."
Federal Reserve Transparency Act Of 2014 September 16, 2014
Elijah Cummings, D-MD
"I emphasize, however, that the Federal Reserve has been subject to audit since 1978. Further, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which I supported, significantly expanded the authority of the Government Accountability Office to examine the Federal Reserve’s operations."
Recognizing Linda Lea Viken September 15, 2014
Tim Johnson, D-SD
"Mr. President, today I wish to recognize a South Dakota attorney who has distinguished herself on the local, State, and national level. Linda Lea Viken has been a successful practicing attorney in South Dakota since 1978. She was recently presented with the Trial Lawyer of the Year Award by the South Dakota Trial Lawyers Association during the association’s annual meeting."
Commending Tom Carper June 24, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"NERO has, since 1978, recognized in a nonpartisan manner outstanding achievements in the energy field, particularly in the areas of public awareness regarding energy development, supply, and use."
