Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
The Regulatory Integrity Protection Act Of 2015 May 1, 2015
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"Enacted in 1972, the Clean Water Act established a Federal-State partnership to protect our Nation’s navigable waterways. The administration has maintained that the proposed Waters of the U.S. rule would have no impact on waters historically not under the Clean Water Act’s jurisdiction and is needed simply to provide legal clarity."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 1, 2015
Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-NJ
"Finally, a word about Yucca Mountain. Many Members of Congress have been advocates for Yucca Mountain as we consider it essential to our nation’s energy independence. Decades of analysis, millions of documents, and billions of taxpayer dollars have been put towards the scientific examination of Yucca Mountain as a safe and secure geologic repository for nuclear waste. Your bill includes funding to keep the license processing for Yucca Mountain moving forward and it also prohibits the Administration from moving ahead with any other plan not authorized by Congress. This will ensure that we keep Congress in the driver’s seat for nuclear waste policy."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions April 28, 2015
John McCain, R-AZ
"Mr. President, Senator Reed and I are introducing, by request, the administration‘s proposed National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2016. As is the case with any bill that is introduced by request, we introduce this bill for the purpose of placing the administration‘s proposals before Congress and the public without expressing our own views on the substance of these proposals. As Chairman and Ranking Member of the Armed Services Committee, we look forward to giving the administration‘s requested legislation our most careful review and thoughtful consideration."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act— Continued April 28, 2015
Patrick Toomey, R-PA
"Let me explain why I am concerned about that. I see three big categories of reasons; first, the administration has already made too many concessions; second, the Iranian regime is a regime we cannot trust; third, while the administration says don’t worry, you don’t need to trust them because we can verify and enforce this agreement and, boy, if they step out of line, we will snap those sanctions back in a heartbeat, that is a fantasy. I do not see that working. Let me explain these three categories."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act April 28, 2015
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"I believe it is also essential that the spirit of cooperation and bipartisanship that was demonstrated by Senators Corker and Cardin in forging a bipartisan bill continue this week as the full Senate takes up the Iran legislation. Amendments that undermine the administration‘s negotiations or structurally alter this careful bipartisan compromise should be rejected by the Senate."
