Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Ratepayer Protection Act Of 2015 June 24, 2015
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"It has been amended and changed several times since then, but the EPA is simply acting on a law that was passed by the Congress. There is no such thing here that the EPA is somehow doing something that they shouldn’t be doing, which is what is being suggested by some of my colleagues on the Republican side and, I guess, is the basis for this legislation."
Nuclear Agreement With Iran June 24, 2015
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"Whatever the case may be, I certainly do not trust the Iranian Supreme Leader nor do I want my acceptance of a deal to be based solely on his rhetoric. To borrow a phrase from President Reagan—a phrase we have heard in this Chamber hundreds of times since I came here 14 years ago—final deals should not be predicated on the mantra “trust but verify.” Rather they should embody the principle of “distrust and verify.”"
American Research And Competitiveness Act Of 2015 May 20, 2015
Rick Allen, R-GA
"H.R. 880 is to simplify and make permanent the research and development tax credit. Despite the fact that the research tax credit has been extended 16 times since its enactment, it remains a temporary measure. It is very difficult to plan based on temporary measures. Clearly, it is high time that we provide certainty for innovators in Georgia and across the Nation by making this tax credit permanent."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 20, 2015
Jon Tester, D-MT
"It has been talked about here earlier today that a Federal court recently ruled that the NSA bulk data collections are illegal, flat illegal. But keep in mind that the NSA used the PATRIOT Act to authorize those data collections. Yet, in the Senate, some of our colleagues think we should reauthorize those expiring provisions without even having a debate on the merits. We have seen this before. It has happened several times since I have been in the Senate."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2262, Spurring Private Aerospace Competitiveness And Entrepreneurship Act Of 2015; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 880, American Research And Competitiveness… May 20, 2015
Steve Stivers, R-OH
"The other underlying bill in this rule, H.R. 880, addresses the research and development tax credit. In 1981, President Reagan signed into law a critical research and development tax credit, but Washington has let it expire and then has renewed it over a dozen times since then."
