Entry Title Date
21St Century Endangered Species Transparency Act July 29, 2014
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"So I wish we would return to a bipartisan addressing of the forest fire issue because I know there is bipartisan concern on it. There is a bill pending in the House—54 Republicans, 54 Democrats. We should take that bill up today, tomorrow, or Thursday before we leave town and fund our firefighting efforts."

Tribute To Dennis Jaeger July 24, 2014
Tim Johnson, D-SD
"There have been a number of key accomplishments on the Black Hills National Forest that Jaeger has helped facilitate, including guiding the successful merger of the Tribal Youth Natural Resources Crew with the Boxelder Job Corps Center Crew to become the Youth Natural Resources, YNR, Crew. The YNR Crew is much better organized, provides unique work training and education, remains very diverse and productive, and improves the land. The YNR Crew received a Regional Forester’s Honor Award in 2013. Dennis, as a key member of the Forest Leadership Team, helps guide one of the largest forest restoration programs in the United States. The Black Hills Forest received the Regional Forester’s Honor Award for its timber program in 2013 and the Chief’s Honor Award in 2013 for its Mountain Pine Beetle Response Project."
Fighting Hunger Incentive Act Of 2014 July 17, 2014
Sander Levin, D-MI
"Mr. Speaker, this is a severe case of losing the forest for the trees. This is not about the benefits of charity. This is not about the benefits of foundations. It is not about the benefit of conservation easements. This is a dramatic challenge to Republicans in terms of fiscal responsibility and fiscal priorities."
