Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016—Conference Report October 7, 2015
John McCain, R-AZ
"I thank the Senator for the question. There was a concern among the conferees that the Senate provision would not allow adequate time for the mandatory review, especially given the broadening of the application of the Army Field Manual to the rest of government. In light of this change, and the importance of the review, the conferees decided that 3 years was a more appropriate timeline."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions July 23, 2015
John Hoeven, R-ND
"So this is really an effort to build bipartisan support for a solution to the COOL issue, which has been a challenging issue. This is an issue we worked on on the farm bill. I was one of the conferees on the conference committee, and COOL and some of the other issues were some of the last—dairy, for example—issues we were able to resolve in finally getting an agreement on a farm bill."
Legislative Program April 16, 2015
Kevin McCarthy, R-CA
"As the gentleman knows, I do not like to get ahead of the conferees. I will let them work forward and see what comes back. As soon as their work is done, we will notify everyone and have it back on to the floor."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued April 15, 2015
Michael Enzi, R-WY
"I will reiterate that I had about 4 weeks to put it together and 4 months to get it done. We have not done one in 8 years, so it was quite a challenge. We are getting closer now, and today we will have an opportunity to voice some concerns. I am glad we are at this point. I look forward to working with the conferees."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued April 15, 2015
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"Mr. President, this amendment, about which I asked to instruct the conferees, passed by a voice vote, and I appreciate the acceptance of it by Senator Enzi and Senator Sanders during the vote 2 weeks ago. We know too big to fail is still with us. We know that it is really all about those megabanks that are over $500 billion in total assets. That is what my amendment speaks to."
