Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Local Prioritization Of Land And Water Conservation Fund November 19, 2015
Doug LaMalfa, R-CA
"However, for every worthwhile local investment of $20,000 or $30,000, this administration now disproportionately spends millions on land acquisition for the Forest Service, which already can’t manage what it owns."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 November 19, 2015
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"Here is the most important point to make. The people I represent don’t believe we can just stand still in the wake of Paris, even if they believe the screening program is robust enough. They may be convinced of this, but they are certainly right that we can’t accept the status quo. My worry over the past week is that this hyperfocus on the refugee program that has only brought in 2,000 immigrants last year—mostly women and children—misses the forest for the trees."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency—Continued November 17, 2015
Susan Collins, R-ME
"I continue to have some concerns, however, with the Clean Power Plan’s treatment of renewable biomass energy. Biomass energy is a sustainable, responsible, renewable, and economically significant energy source. Many States, including Maine, are relying on renewable biomass to meet their renewable energy goals. Because the final rule places the onus on States to demonstrate the eligibility of biomass for the Clean Power Plan, this approach will lead to more regulatory uncertainty. The EPA must appropriately recognize the carbon benefits of forest bioenergy in a way that helps States, mills, and the forest products industry and recognizes the carbon neutrality of wood. I will continue to seek regulatory certainty and clarity on this issue."
Global Anti-Poaching Act November 2, 2015
Ed Royce, R-CA
"It is quite possible, as Mr. Engel said and as Mr. Poe alluded, that our children could grow up in a world without rhinoceros, without elephants, and it is no exaggeration. Certainly the forest elephant is going to be wiped out; the black rhino is going to be wiped out."
National Forest Products Week October 23, 2015
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in recognition of National Forest Products Week and in support of our Nation’s foresters, our timber producers, our researchers, and the forest products industry as a whole."
