Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H. Con. Res. 96, Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015, And Providing For Proceedings During The Period From April 11, 2014, Through April 25, 2014 April 8, 2014
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"This is Emil Schweitzer’s farm field. For 3 years, people crashed through the barrier at the end here and went into his field, until Dwight David Eisenhower, a Republican, passed the national highway transportation bill with a trust fund."
Transportation Needs March 5, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Next week, I will start all over again with the American Public Transit Association. These people are all desperate for a 6-year, fully funded transportation bill, with stable, non-general funded money. They are standing on the edge of a cliff due to Congress’ refusal—I almost said inability—to provide necessary funds, if not to do it right, at least to do it adequately."
Emergency Unemployment Compensation Extension Act February 6, 2014
Jack Reed, D-RI
"Now we have a 3-month bill that is paid for by a technique called pension smoothing, which we have enacted on a bipartisan basis. In fact, the vote was 79 to 19 in the 2012 Transportation bill, MAP-21. So this is not a controversial pay-for. This is something we have embraced before. It is something that does not involve raising revenues, which is one of the benchmarks our colleagues laid down. So we have a short-term, fully paid-for UI benefit which can go out immediately to people who are suffering and which is paid for by a noncontroversial mechanism."
Repealing Section 403 Of The Bipartisan Budget Act Of 2013—Motion To Proceed February 4, 2014
Jack Reed, D-RI
"This offset has been used before. It passed 79 to 19 as part of the 2012 MAP-21 transportation bill. This is a noncontroversial pay-for. It has been proposed by Members on both sides of the aisle with various proposals requiring pay-fors."
Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act Of 2014 January 29, 2014
Patrick Toomey, R-PA
"In June of 2012—so less than 2 years ago—Biggert-Waters, the flood insurance reform program—was wrapped into another bill. It was wrapped into the MAP-21 Transportation bill and it passed—and it passed with overwhelming support. As a matter of fact, as it happens, every single Democratic Senator who was in the Chamber voted in favor of the Biggert-Waters reforms I think in part because they understood this program needed to be reformed, and I think we all believe this program needs to be in a fiscally sustainable place."
