Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
American Energy Solutions For Lower Costs And More American Jobs Act September 18, 2014
Henry Waxman, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, as I understand what the gentlelady has said is that, if we had passed a transportation bill, that would have provided help for our infrastructure and provided jobs. We didn’t vote for that bill even once."
The Continuing Resolution September 16, 2014
Suzanne Bonamici, D-OR
"And let’s not forget how many people could get back to work if we would set aside our differences and pass a long-term transportation bill and a comprehensive overhaul of our Tax Code. Enough of these policies that incentivize businesses to go overseas; we need policies that keep them bringing jobs back home."
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."
