Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Nomination Of Robert S. Adler To Be A Commissioner Of The Consumer Product Safety Commission—Continued December 2, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Here is what is happening. The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a new rule that would dramatically slash the limits of ground-level ozone. The rule runs 626 pages. Then we add on the appendix—over 500 additional pages."
Senate Transportation Bill July 29, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"The Senate will be debating limiting funding for this year or sliding into next. They will even debate Senator Lee’s proposal to slash the Federal partnership and turn it back to the States as an unfunded mandate, eliminating the gas tax and, with it, any thoughtful, overall Federal transportation system."
Highway And Transportation Funding Act Of 2014 July 15, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"There are others in the Republicans whose answer is to just abandon ship, to give up on the Federal partnership, slash the Federal gas tax, and abandon any hope of a national transportation policy and partnership to help States with projects that are multistate in nature or that need to be done whether economic times are bad."
Financial Services And General Government Appropriations Act, 2015 July 14, 2014
Nita Lowey, D-NY
"What frustrates me most is that my Republican friends know that government agencies cannot function at the levels they would impose, but would rather vote to slash funding even lower because it suits their political purposes. Our constituents deserve better than this cynical political exercise."
Customer Protection And End User Relief Act June 24, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Third, neither this legislation—nor the FY 2015 House Agriculture-FDA Appropriations bill, which proposes to slash the CFTC’s budget by 22 percent below the President’s request—does anything to provide the CFTC with the resources it needs to police fraud and excessive speculation in our derivatives markets on behalf of end users and consumers."
