Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Energy Policy Modernization Bill February 2, 2016
John Thune, R-SD
"Last year we passed a number of significant bipartisan bills, including a major reform of No Child Left Behind and a multiyear transportation bill that will strengthen our infrastructure and put Americans to work."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015 January 27, 2016
Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"Another area where the leaders worked cooperatively and collaboratively—I commend Senator Boxer and Senator Inhofe for what they did on the highway bill. They worked through the issues that were not easy but were absolutely necessary to get a longer term highway transportation bill. That does not happen if you just elbow your way through. It comes when you work together. I think we have demonstrated on the energy committee that we have done just that—working collaboratively."
Fast Act January 19, 2016
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"Mr. President, I want to talk about something that was overlooked late in the year as we passed the surface transportation bill—the highway bill. It was called the Fix America’s Surface Transportation Act or the FAST Act. It wasn’t very fast."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Corps Of Engineers And The Environmental Protection Agency January 13, 2016
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"So we could, I believe, probably, like we did with the WRRDA bill in the last Congress, or the surface transportation bill in this Congress, have a pretty vigorous debate, but come up with a decent way forward, because nobody disagrees over the need for clean water in this country. It is a precious, precious commodity."
Nomination Of Samuel Heins January 11, 2016
Amy Klobuchar, D-MN
"Last year, as we know, Congress was able to find common ground on so many issues. We passed a budget bill, we passed a transportation bill, a historic amount of funding, an increase in funding. We got the bill done on sex trafficking that Senator Cornyn and I worked on so hard. I can go through a list of the work we did together across the aisle."
