Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"And how about the folks that are working hard every day in our veterans hospitals, those nurses, Federal employees? How about the Border Control Agents? How about the FBI? How about the folks in the intelligence community who helped track down Obama bin Laden? How about all of them?"
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 25, 2015
John McCain, R-AZ
" … just based on my best professional judgment and having served in this business for a long time I’m very concerned about it. And if we revert to sequestration in 2016, the damage to the intelligence community will be quite profound."
Support The Democratic Budget March 24, 2015
C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-MD
"I am proud to represent not one, but two Army bases, Fort Meade and Aberdeen Proving Ground, as well as an Air National Guard base at Martin State Airport. I am a member of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee and am co-chair of the Army Caucus. I am the former ranking member of the Intelligence Committee."
Celebrating The Public Service Of The Honorable Thomas Howard Kean March 24, 2015
Leonard Lance, R-NJ
"In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, President Bush turned to Governor Kean and former Indiana Congressman Lee Hamilton to chair the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States. The two chairs led an exhaustive review of the intelligence, homeland security, and governmental response before and after the acts of terror perpetrated against this country. The 9/11 Commission’s work and leadership drew bipartisan acclaim and resulted in major reforms to improve our Nation’s security preparedness. The United States is safer today thanks to the tremendous work of Governor Kean and his colleagues."
A Nuclear Iran March 16, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"There are many in the policy communities who find some mistaken sense of comfort from the intelligence agencies’ current view that Iran has not yet made a formal decision to develop a nuclear weapon. This is a delusion. Iran’s industrial-strength uranium enrichment enterprise has gone from 600 centrifuges 6 years ago when the international community first expressed alarm to 19,000 today. We know the Ayatollah is on a quest for 190,000 centrifuges as soon as international constraints are removed."
