Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Intelligence Authorization Bill June 27, 2016
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Mr. President, I want to take a few minutes tonight to discuss the Intelligence authorization bill for fiscal year 2017. The Senate has been asked to provide unanimous consent to move forward on this legislation, and I have objected to doing that and want to take just a few minutes to outline why I feel very strongly about this."
Commerce, Justice, Science, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued June 23, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"We know this is not the last time terrorists will try to attack American citizens here at home. It is going to happen again, sadly, unless we wake up and provide the FBI and our counterterrorism officials the intelligence they need so they can stop these sorts of lone wolf terrorists in place. This is the preeminent threat from ISIS today. It is not what is happening in Syria, not what is happening in Iraq, although that is a serious threat to stability in the Middle East; it is the fact that, unlike 9/11, they don’t need to get in an airplane and come here because what they can do is radicalize American citizens in place using their poisonous propaganda on the Internet and through social media."
Commerce, Justice, Science, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 June 21, 2016
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"As I look at these cases—and she and I have talked about this on the Select Committee on Intelligence—we know that the workforce is aging in the intelligence community. We are going to need more dollars for the personnel we are going to need and certainly a lot of resources in a variety of areas. Is that my colleague’s intention, to make sure we get the resources to, in effect, get out in front of these upcoming threats?"
Department Of Defense Appropriations Act, 2017 June 14, 2016
Nita Lowey, D-NY
"A great deal of good elsewhere in the bill is overshadowed by this failure. I thank the chairman for his work to increase cybersecurity operations by nearly $1 billion; invest in the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance resources combat commanders clamor for; provide strong, bipartisan support for our allies in the Middle East; and finance important health initiatives that help warfighters and their families."
Celebrating The 90Th Birthday Of Hugh Mcmillan June 14, 2016
Derek Kilmer, D-WA
"He served our country in the military and in the intelligence community, and he served our community as the unofficial mayor of the Key Peninsula. That is evidenced through his service in the Lions Club, who each year puts on a Citizen of the Year ceremony to honor those who make the Key Peninsula a better and stronger place. In fact, he served the community so well, he was given the Service Above Self Award from the Gig Harbor Rotary Club. Having a group of Rotarians honor a Lions Club member is a big deal."
