Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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

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."
Fighting Hunger Incentive Act Of 2014 July 17, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR

Infrastructure Needs Of America July 15, 2014
John Garamendi, D-CA
