Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Program February 4, 2016
Kevin McCarthy, R-CA
"So, yes, we want to get in front of this. I know we have been talking to the administration as well. I look forward to working with you in dealing with this issue because this is not something that should lay by the wayside. This is something we have to get in front of."
Financial Institution Customer Protection Act Of 2015 February 4, 2016
Luke Messer, R-IN
"This commonsense legislation we are considering today will protect consumer access to banking services and restrict the administration from using the highly substantive notion of reputational risk to undercut constitutional rights and terminate the accounts of lawful businesses. I urge my colleagues to support the bill."
H.R. 1675, The Capital Markets Improvements Act And H.R. 766, The Financial Institution Customer Protections Act February 4, 2016
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Appropriate financial rules should protect American families and the broader economy without being unduly burdensome to small businesses and innovative entrepreneurs. When the Administration misses this mark, it is my hope that Congress can work in a constructive, bipartisan manner to refine regulations, tailoring them to strike an appropriate balance between business and consumer needs. Unfortunately, this week’s efforts fail to meet that standard."
Recent Regulatory Changes Related To Cuba February 4, 2016
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Mr. President, last week the administration took another step in unraveling the web of onerous, misguided, and self-defeating restrictions on the ability of American citizens to travel to Cuba and to interact with the people of Cuba."
Tribute To Esther Olavarria February 4, 2016
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Mr. President, I am proud to recognize Ms. Esther Olavarria, an extraordinary public servant who has worked for decades to build an immigration system that is fair and just for all. I know Esther from her time in the Senate as Senator Kennedy’s lead advisor on immigration matters for the Judiciary Committee. In the Senate and more recently in the administration, Esther’s intelligent, thoughtful advice and analysis has been invaluable. She is stepping down this week after serving as senior counselor to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Johnson. I have no doubt the Secretary will miss her, as I do here in the Senate."
