Nomination Of Joseph William Westphal To Be Ambassador Extraordinary And Plenipotentiary Of The United States Of America To The Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia March 26, 2014
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Joe Westphal is one who has had a career in academia—and I don’t really care that much about that, except for his two exposures in Oklahoma—but he also was the chancellor at the University of Maine, he taught public policy as the adjunct professor at Georgetown University, and he has been a Capitol Hill professional staff member for a long time. He actually was on the House Budget Committee for a long period of time. He was also a special assistant to our Senator Thad Cochran, although this has been some time ago."
Morning Business March 10, 2014
Angus King, I-ME
"One of the things that worries me, and the reason I am here tonight, is some research that has been done at the University of Maine. We have a climate study center at the University of Maine. I was there a year or so ago, and I was meeting with them. It was one of these meetings where we are going around and we go to the university, factories, and schools and meet with people and they give us briefings, and I was listening to a briefing on climate change when a word crept into that discussion that I had not heard before, and the word was “abrupt.”"
