Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Carnes Nomination July 21, 2014
Johnny Isakson, R-GA
"Charlie Carnes was my mentor in the Georgia General Assembly for 12 years before he was appointed to be a State court judge in Fulton County, the largest county in the State of Georgia. Charlie is looking down on the daughter he is so proud of, and he is so proud that she is going to be confirmed by the Senate to one of the highest court appointments she could possibly achieve."
Protect Women’S Health From Corporate Interference Act July 16, 2014
Johnny Isakson, R-GA
"Let me talk about Noah Harris. Noah Harris was a cheerleader at the University of Georgia. On the Saturday before 9/11 in 2001, he was in Sanford Stadium with 92,000 fans of the Georgia Bulldogs cheering on the team."
Workforce Innovation And Opportunity Act June 25, 2014
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"We had a number of Republican Senators whom Senator Isakson and I worked with, and I would like to acknowledge their role, starting with Senator Isakson. He was the majority leader of the Georgia—well, I guess he was the minority leader of the Georgia Senate. He was the Republican leader. At that time, they didn’t have a majority; they just had a few Senators. But he learned the skills of negotiation and compromise in order to get a result, while still sticking to his conservative principles, and I like to see that skill. So on our side of the aisle he gets most of the credit for the result we are getting."
Water Resources Reform And Development Act Of 2014 May 22, 2014
Doug Collins, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, I strongly commend Chairman Shuster and Ranking Member Rahall for bringing conference report for the Water Resources and Reform Development Act to the floor. It represents a great bipartisan effort on one of Congress’ true article one responsibilities, providing for America’s infrastructure. In northeast Georgia, the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project (SHEP) means jobs. Georgia’s 9th Congressional District shipped more than 10,780 tons of goods through Georgia ports in 2013 alone. As a member of the Georgia House of Representatives, I fought for Georgia’s investment in SHEP to get the project moving, and now as a member of the United States House of Representatives, I’m proud to vote in favor of the federal government living up to its promise of matching funds. Deepening this harbor from 42 to 47 feet will allow new supertankers to use the port to transport Georgia products all over the world."
Legislative Session May 22, 2014
Saxby Chambliss, R-GA
"One of the projects this bill advances is crucial to not only my State of Georgia but to the entire country. Passage of this bill, with the enhanced authorization it contains for the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project, will be the culmination of years of work for the State of Georgia and project stakeholders—and my entire time serving in the Georgia congressional delegation."
