Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of Establishing A Select Investigative Panel Of The Committee On Energy And Commerce October 7, 2015
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"The American public wants to see us pass a budget, a transportation bill, keep the government open, do the Export-Import Bank and other things that are important."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016—Conference Report October 7, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"If we can find the bipartisan will to work together to pass a long-term transportation bill that increases funding for roads and bridges and transit projects, certainly they can find it in the House, and they should find that consensus there. We are up against this deadline. We keep hearing that the House—or I did—is going to act. Now, as far as we know, they have put off the markup of the bill until the day before we have a shutdown. That is ridiculous."
Important Issues That Affect America October 6, 2015
Marcy Kaptur, D-OH
"We are having a Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway meeting tomorrow morning, inviting in many of the business interests along the seaway and looking for ways in our transportation bill where we can make more investment in that region so it can sing fully economically again."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016—Conference Report October 1, 2015
Tammy Baldwin, D-WI
"Two months ago the Senate did its job and passed a long-term transportation bill with bipartisan support. That legislation sought to end this constant cycle of short-term measures. It put people to work rebuilding our roads and bridges and ports and creates jobs and will boost our economy. It is also important to manufacturers because it makes an investment in a 21st-century American infrastructure that provides businesses with the quality transportation system they need to move their goods to market."
Tax Reform And Infrastructure Funding September 30, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"It would give a lower tax rate on hundreds of billions of dollars parked overseas by international corporations and use the tax on those proceeds to finance a more robust 6-year transportation bill. What is not to like?"
