Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act July 17, 2014
Tim Johnson, D-SD
"We were careful, however, in reaching this compromise not to raise the trigger, which would drive small insurers out of the market and reduce the availability and affordability of coverage for businesses nationwide. This bipartisan bill also does not pick what modes of terrorist attacks should get preferential treatment over other forms of attacks."
Bring Jobs Back Home Act—Motion To Proceed—Continued July 17, 2014
Kelly Ayotte, R-NH
"I wish to raise the issue as following: There is an investigation going on. We don’t know yet who is responsible or if anyone is responsible. The facts will come forward as to why this plane went down. But it has been widely reported that the plane was, in fact, shot down. Some of the reports have said it was done by a medium-range surface-to-air missile system."
Financial Services And General Government Appropriations Act, 2015 July 16, 2014
Joseph Crowley, D-NY
"Today, let’s give $7.25 to the President so he can keep up that necessary work. If Republicans would join us in raising the minimum wage and lifting up American workers instead of putting language in this bill to forbid the President from trying to raise the wages of hardworking Americans, we wouldn’t have this conversation today."
Financial Services And General Government Appropriations Act, 2015 July 15, 2014
Dina Titus, D-NV
"The medical marijuana industry is rapidly taking root in Nevada. Our local governments are developing regulations and are issuing licenses as we speak. Yet representatives of this exciting industry continue to raise the same concern—a lack of access to banks, which is critical for the safe operation of any small business."
Infrastructure Needs Of America July 15, 2014
John Garamendi, D-CA
"His program would generate, over a period of 10 years, $720 billion to be used in public-private partnerships to build our infrastructure. There are many, many ideas about how this could be paid for. The President has laid out a plan not to raise the gasoline and the diesel tax, but rather to bring about some tax fairness, and corporations would be required to pay their fair share—all of it good."
