Entry Title Date
Celebrating The Life Of Johnnie Sowell Neese February 1, 2016
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"Mr. Speaker, last week, South Carolinians mourned the passing of Johnnie Sowell Neese of Springdale who was recognized as one of the state’s leading businesswomen. She was the state’s first female Republican candidate for office with the 1964 Goldwater Republican effort. At that time only one Republican had been elected as a legislator in the Twentieth Century being Charlie Boineau in 1961. Mrs. Neese courageously spearheaded the promotion of the two-party system in South Carolina where Republicans are now super majorities in the legislature holding all statewide offices. They are led by Governor Nikki Haley, from her home county of Lexington, who is the state’s first female Governor in 340 years."
Terrorist Attacks Against France And Guantanamo Bay Detainees November 19, 2015
Pat Roberts, R-KS
"Now, beyond the security threat this poses to our communities in Kansas and in South Carolina or Colorado—the sites which this administration has surveyed for potential relocation—there has been no intelligence assessment regarding the danger of moving enemy combatants from Guantanamo to the United States. That is amazing. The question is, How can the administration ask Kansans or Coloradans or South Carolinians or any Americans to paint a bull’s-eye on their community without providing assurances that moving detainees to the United States will not pose a threat to them or our national security? It seems unfathomable, yet this President is proposing to do just that."
In Memory Of Martha Carolyn Eden October 20, 2015
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"Mr. Speaker, on Thursday, October 15th, South Carolinians paused from recovery efforts of record flooding to recognize the life of Martha Carolyn Edens with a Service of Death and Resurrection at Trenholm Road United Methodist Church in Columbia."
May God Bless The State Of South Carolina October 7, 2015
Jeffrey Duncan, R-SC
"Mr. Speaker, many of you know South Carolina was inundated with a historic rainfall. They call it a 1,000-year rain event. The rivers have not crested yet. The floods continue. Many South Carolinians are displaced. Many are hurting."
Disaster In South Carolina October 5, 2015
Lindsey Graham, R-SC
"Mr. President, 2015 has been a miserable year for the State of South Carolina. Some of the worst things have happened, and we are still hanging in there. Everybody is clinging to each other in a very heartwarming way. And I am sure there will be exceptions to that rule—curfews are in place—but the vast majority of South Carolinians are rising to the occasion."
