Entry Title Date
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed July 23, 2015
James Inhofe, R-OK
"What I would like to do is talk about the background of this. People don’t realize that this was started in 1956 by the great General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who became the President of the United States. This Senator can say, as one of the most conservative Members of the Senate, I believe the Federal Government has grown larger and more invasive than our Founding Fathers ever envisioned, and our country could benefit from a smaller and more efficient government. I have observed that in government, if there is a problem out there, the government comes along and starts some kind of agency to deal with the problem and then the problem goes away, but the agency continues. In fact, they become part of the problem. Right now I am having a problem with one of the big bureaucracies, the FAA, on legislation that I proposed and that we passed 2 years ago, and now we have an extension of that."

Mark Warner, D-VA
"Likewise, a recent audit of the Federal Aviation Administration’s network in January cited “significant security control weaknesses … placing the safe and uninterrupted operation of the nation’s air traffic control system at increased and unnecessary risk.” The FAA‘s former chief information security officer told the press that he had been frustrated by the failure to address obvious security holes in its most important networks."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions June 18, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"What I received from the FAA was—simply put—startling, and it really crystallized for me the magnitude of the problem we face."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 June 4, 2015
David Price, D-NC
"I thank the gentleman for yielding. I simply want to add—or to reiterate, I might say—that our subcommittee’s fiscal year ‘15 report required the FAA to work with the Phoenix community on this issue and to report back to the committee on these efforts. We are still waiting for that report."
Spurring Private Aerospace Competitiveness And Entrepreneurship Act Of 2015 May 21, 2015
Lamar Smith, R-TX
"Mr. Chairman, this amendment requires the launch license streamlining report to include recommendations on how the FAA should facilitate outreach to minority- and women-owned businesses about opportunities in the commercial space industry. I don’t object to the gentlewoman’s amendment."
