Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1737, Reforming Cfpb Indirect Auto Financing Guidance Act; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 511, Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act Of 2015; And For Other Purposes November 17, 2015
Tom Cole, R-OK
"So again, we also are a little bit surprised to see what we do think is a housekeeping matter in terms of striking something out of the reconciliation bill objected to. I just remind my friends they voted overwhelmingly for the budget deal itself that included that measure. There is nothing untoward going on here. We are just trying to move forward legislation that we think is important and remove things that have already been enacted into law. So it is, indeed, as suggested, a housekeeping matter."
Trade Act Of 2015 October 30, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"We should also restore funding for community health centers and substance abuse and mental health programs. As I travel around the State of Illinois, our State, like most States, is facing a heroin epidemic. We find that the overdoses and deaths associated with heroin are now striking a part of our population that they never struck before. The prevalence of death from heroin in America in the last 15 years has changed dramatically, and now most of the victims are White, between the ages of 18 and 44. And that means we have to do something about it, not only in policing—which is, of course, our responsibility—but also when it comes to treatment for those who are addicted. We can’t cut back in substance abuse and mental health programs without paying a heavy price and inviting more human suffering."
Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015 October 23, 2015
Leonard Lance, R-NJ
"This comprehensive package focuses on significant portions of ObamaCare, striking onerous tax and mandate provisions, and laying the groundwork for a new President elected in 2016 to complete a full replacement plan of ObamaCare—not repeal—repeal and replacement."
Syrian Displacement Crisis October 22, 2015
Marcy Kaptur, D-OH
"Now, in addition to daily airstrikes against civilians by the Syrian Government violating international humanitarian law, Russian warplanes are striking medical facilities and residential areas in non-ISIL areas where rebel forces are fighting to overthrow the Assad regime while Russia publicly proclaims its aim of eliminating ISIL targets."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1937, National Strategic And Critical Minerals Production Act Of 2015 October 21, 2015
Dan Newhouse, R-WA
"Mr. Speaker, this rule allows for consideration of an important piece of legislation that will address the burdensome permitting and regulatory hurdles that are harmful to this vital industry. Yet, while this legislation allows for greater utilization of domestic resources, it also maintains important environmental safeguards designed to ensure the health of our constituents and ecosystems, striking an important balance that has been absent far too long."
