Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Remembering Emanuel Ame Church June 24, 2015
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"A hate-filled, drug-crazed murderer tried to divide our citizens, but he failed, and South Carolinians have unified in love, prayer, and respect."
J. Waties Waring Judicial Center June 15, 2015
James Clyburn, D-SC
"Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 2131, a bill to rename the federal courthouse in Charleston, South Carolina in honor of Judge J. Waties Waring. This bill is a tribute to two men, two outstanding South Carolinians. The first, Judge Waring, for whom the bill will name the courthouse, was a federal judge in South Carolina during the 1940s and 50s who made landmark and courageous rulings on civil rights."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Continued May 19, 2015
Lindsey Graham, R-SC
"Come to South Carolina and tell the people at Boeing and all of their suppliers—and go to the Greenville GE plant that hires thousands of South Carolinians and all of their small business suppliers—why it is a good idea for America to shut down a bank that makes money for the taxpayers that allows us to be competitive. Tell them how you think that is a good way to grow our economy. Tell those people who have good jobs in South Carolina—and who will surely lose market share because we closed our Bank down—how proud they should be of your ideological purity."
Support Electric Cooperatives April 22, 2015
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"Mr. Speaker, over 1.5 million rural South Carolinians receive their power through local electric cooperatives, who work to keep costs low and maintain high energy standards. Unfortunately, President Obama established new regulations for electric water heaters 5 years ago, destroying jobs. These regulations went into effect last week and have negatively impacted the cooperatives by limiting their ability to manage water heaters during peak time, making consumers pay for an inefficient use of resources."
One River, One Boat January 14, 2015
James Clyburn, D-SC
"Now, Mr. Speaker, I have attended several inaugurations of South Carolina’s Governors. Some were shorter than others. None were allotted a specific amount of time. South Carolinians are proud of their poet laureates, but all have not always agreed with the import of their writings. I believe it is wrong to not include this prolific, artistic expression in this year’s ceremony."
