Entry Title Date
Energy And Water Development Appropriations Bill October 8, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"The cost of veterans’ health care is rising, insufficient, and has been roundly criticized. The cost of low-income housing is rising, the cost of educating our children is rising, and the cost of fighting natural disasters, such as drought and wildfires, is also rising.

Responsibly And Professionally Invigorating Development Act Of 2015 September 25, 2015
Alan Lowenthal, D-CA
"Particularly in the face of climate change, we must take special care to ensure that the future value of projects is considered. This means thoroughly evaluating the risks associated with more frequent and intense wildfires as well as flooding caused by stronger storms and higher sea levels."
Personal Explanation September 24, 2015
Mike Thompson, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, September 16th through September 18th I was absent due to activities in my District related to wildfires and was unable to cast my vote for Roll Calls 495 through 506. Had I been present I would have voted:"
