Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1560, Protecting Cyber Networks Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1731, National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Act Of 2015 April 22, 2015
Jared Polis, D-CO
"Yes. Rather than a cybersecurity measure, effectively, these bills are a stalking horse for broad new surveillance authority by multiple agencies of the Federal Government without warrants, without oversight."
Executive Session February 12, 2015
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"There is no basis whatsoever to advocate change in Federal mandatory minimum sentencing laws based on drug possession cases since they are not subject to such mandatory minimums. Anyone who raises drug possession as an argument against Federal mandatory minimum sentences is using a stalking horse to lower sentences for much more serious offenders. "
Unfunded Mandates Information And Transparency Act Of 2015 February 4, 2015
Cheri Bustos, D-IL
"This includes protecting children from convicted sex offenders and preventing domestic violence, including stalking. It also addresses rape and sexual assault and using Federal resources for background checks for school employees."
The Stalking Government February 4, 2015
Ted Poe, R-TX
"So I hope that we see some movement in this legislation. Once again, Zoe Lofgren and I have introduced legislation, as well as others, to protect the right of individuals to be free from searches of their emails after 6 months without a search warrant. We have that legislation pending as well. Hopefully, we can rein in what I call the stalking government about stalking American citizens."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions February 3, 2015
Tim Kaine, D-VA
"This is why I am proud to introduce with my colleagues, Senator McCaskill and Senator Blumenthal, the Teach Safe Relationships Act of 2015, which would build upon the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act to develop and implement prevention and intervention policies in middle and high schools, including appropriate procedures for students who are experiencing or perpetrating domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or sex trafficking."
