Entry Title Date
Remembering Dr. Kevin Murphy November 19, 2015
Gwen Graham, D-FL
"In 2002, Dr. Murphy moved to north Florida, where he became medical director for the Gulf County Health Center. He worked there for more than a decade and became well known as a passionate health provider and advocate for equal access to quality care."
The Year In Review November 19, 2015
Garret Graves, R-LA
"Mr. Speaker, I have actually experienced it myself, asking the U.S. Department of the Interior for a meeting with the Gulf Coast delegation, with House Members and Senators, to sit down and discuss this to ensure that the Department of the Interior gets it right. And I want to be clear on what “right” means, which is to make things safer, not to propose regulations that are actually going to result in the potential for disaster."
Unanimous Consent Request—S. 2303 November 19, 2015
John McCain, R-AZ
"Indeed, since the Budget Control Act of 2011 capped defense and other discretionary spending for the subsequent 10 years, absent any consideration of changing global threats or national requirements, let’s consider what has transpired since 2011. Any semblance of order in the Middle East has collapsed. We are all tragically familiar with the carnage in Syria and Iraq, but Libya has also deteriorated into anarchy and safe havens for ISIL and its affiliates. Yemen has become the scene of a proxy war between Iran and the gulf Arab nations. General David Petraeus testified to the Armed Services Committee: “Almost every Middle Eastern country is now a battleground or a combatant in one or more wars.”"
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency—Continued November 17, 2015
Susan Collins, R-ME
"For Maine, climate change poses a significant threat to our vast natural resources, from working forests, fishing, and agricultural industries, to tourism and recreation, as well as for public health. With heat waves, more extreme weather events, and sea level rise, the greenhouse gasses that drive climate change are a clear threat to our way of life. As a coastal State, Maine is particularly vulnerable to storm surges and flooding, and unpredictable changes in the Gulf of Maine threaten our iconic fisheries. Climate changes also raise significant public health concerns for Maine’s citizens, from asthma to Lyme disease. Maine has one of the highest and fastest growing incident rates of Lyme disease, and its spread has been linked to higher temperatures that are ripe for deer ticks and their hosts. Sitting at the end of the air pollution tailpipe, Maine also has some of the highest rates of asthma in the country."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency November 17, 2015
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"We heard Senator Whitehouse talking about the impact on fisheries in Rhode Island. We have seen that in New Hampshire as well, where cod stocks in the North Atlantic and the Gulf of Maine have been reduced so precipitously that it has devastated New Hampshire’s fishing industry."
