Entry Title Date
Motion To Instruct Conferees On H.R. 3230, Pay Our Guard And Reserve Act July 25, 2014
Ann Kirkpatrick, D-AZ
"Mr. Speaker, I urge all my colleagues to support this motion to instruct the conferees. Both the Senate and the House amendments will expand access to non-VA care for veterans, but this program will only last for 2 years."
Motion To Instruct Conferees On H.R. 3230, Pay Our Guard And Reserve Act July 24, 2014
Ann Kuster, D-NH
"I rise to support the Brownley motion to instruct the conferees on H.R. 3230. It has been one of the most humble honors for me to serve on the Veterans’ Affairs committee, one of the most bipartisan committees in this Congress."
Motion To Instruct Conferees On H.R. 3230, Pay Our Guard And Reserve Act July 17, 2014
Ron Barber, D-AZ
"I also came here in the spirit of bipartisanship, looking for partners on both sides of the aisle to move important legislation for our country, and I am very pleased to say that I have found bipartisanship in full measure in the manner with which we have worked together to ensure that our veterans are properly served. Now I call on my colleagues, the conferees, to move quickly to bring our two bills together, to strike now while the opportunity presents."
Motion To Instruct Conferees On H.R. 3230, Veterans’ Access To Care Through Choice, Accountability, And Transparency Act Of 2014 July 16, 2014
Pete Gallego, D-TX
"We desperately need those 26 additional places. We could put off for the conferees and allow the conferees the latitude to discuss all of the rest of the bill, but we ought to be able to come together on that one thing, and that one thing is those additional 26 facilities."
Wrrda Conference Report May 22, 2014
Carl Levin, D-MI
"In addition to carrying millions of tons of goods, the Great Lakes also boast a $7 billion fishery. To protect this significant resource, destructive invasive species need to be kept out of the lakes. I am pleased the conferees retained an important provision I worked with my colleagues to include in the Senate bill, an authorization for the Corps of Engineers to implement emergency measures to prevent invasive species, including the destructive Asian carp, from dispersing into the Great Lakes. This authorization makes clear that such emergency authority can be implemented at any hydrologic connection between the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins which will provide important flexibility to the Corps to respond to emergencies."
