Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Motion To Proceed—Continued May 13, 2015
Debbie Stabenow, D-MI
"We have heard this over and over again. There has been confusion that has been spread. The IMF has rules about what is and what is not direct currency manipulation. They are clear rules. They are rules that all of the IMF countries have agreed to. They are rules that the United States has followed while they are doing quantitative easing. They are rules that Japan has flagrantly violated not once or twice but 376 times since 1991."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act— Continued April 28, 2015
Bob Corker, R-TN
"Four times since 2010, Congress has put in sanctions that most people believe is what brought Iran to the table—four different tranches. They began in 2010. In almost every one of these cases they have had huge bipartisan support. I know the Senator knows this. But what happened was when those were done—as a matter of fact, this Senator three of those four times voted to give the President a national security waiver on the congressionally mandated sanctions. I know the Senator knows this as well. We talked about it extensively. I know he has had conversations with the Secretary of State—former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, as I have multiple times, and she agrees this is an executive agreement. Let me tell you why."
