Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 November 19, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"This is a transportation bill, and it is very important for us to get our work done, and unfortunately that is appearing more and more difficult."
Fed Oversight Reform And Modernization Act Of 2015 November 18, 2015
Gwen Moore, D-WI
"I am thinking just recently of the transportation bill that we passed out of here—and I voted for it, hoping that it can be fixed in conference—where the Fed is required to provide $60 billion—that is billion with a B, Mr. Chairman—and then is not being allowed to replenish its money supply. This is more than just tinkering in our economy."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued November 18, 2015
Dan Sullivan, R-AK
"Mr. President, I wish to speak about an amendment I plan on offering tomorrow to the Transportation bill we are working on right now on the Senate floor. It is a commonsense amendment. It is an amendment about safety. It is an amendment about protecting our citizens. It is an amendment about cutting through redtape. It is an amendment about what the vast majority of Americans want us to do in the Senate, which is to start to get things done in this body. It is a simple amendment."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency—Continued November 17, 2015
Brian Schatz, D-HI
"Mr. President, I rise to speak in support of the administration’s Clean Power Plan. I think the first thing that must be said—and said over and over, especially this week, with so many critical issues facing our country, with appropriations bills pending, with the transportation bill pending, with perhaps a motion to go to conference on the education reauthorization—is that we are wasting floor time, that this piece of legislation has no chance. The threshold under the Congressional Review Act is 51 votes, and while it is very likely the threshold will be met, let’s take this through the legislative process."
Congressional Black Caucus November 2, 2015
G. Butterfield, D-NC
"Also, we have crumbling schools and infrastructure and highways and tunnels and ports. Our whole infrastructure in this country needs to be addressed. Hopefully, we will be able to pass a transportation bill before the end of the year."
