Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Senate Transportation Bill July 29, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"I will fight for this Congress to get on with its job now. If it means we have to work in October instead of campaigning, so be it. If it means we have to come back after the election and work into the holidays, we should do so. Congress should not recess for vacation, for campaigning, or adjourn for the year unless it has met its responsibilities for a long overdue, 6-year, robust transportation bill provided with enough sustainable, dedicated funding to stop this chronic uncertainty."
Highway And Transportation Funding Act Of 2014 July 29, 2014
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"The result for not just Connecticut but the entire region is hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost productivity. Our inability to pass a long-term transportation bill means that big projects like the replacement of the Norwalk River Bridge cannot get done. Why? Because when you only budget for 12 months or 24 months at a time—or in this instance only 6 months or 4 months at a time—there is no way for a State to be able to plan to do that kind of massive work."
Removing United States Armed Forces From Iraq July 25, 2014
Barbara Lee, D-CA
"I thank all of the Members who are supporting this, including our leadership. Congress should never allow war authorizations to remain on the books in perpetuity. We don’t do this for the farm bill. We don’t do this for the transportation bill. Sooner or later, we need to repeal the initial authorization."
Port Of Savannah July 25, 2014
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"But it doesn’t mean that there is no role for government at all. When it comes to big infrastructure projects, the interstate highway system, for example, that transportation bill that just passed this House 2 short weeks ago, when it comes to our ports, when it comes to those big issues of infrastructure that matter to us all that aren’t just about jobs in our local area but about jobs across this country, we have to come together to make a difference in those ways."
Legislative Session July 21, 2014
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent to have a letter I received today from Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and 11 of his predecessors who served 7 Republican and Democratic Presidents—Johnson, Ford, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama—printed in the Record. They all wrote an open letter saying that we need to pass a long-term transportation bill."
