May 9, 2013 Statements For the Record

May 8, 2013

MS. McCOLLUM: Mister Speaker, I rise in strong opposition to H.R.1406 – a bill more appropriately titled the ‘More Work, Less Pay Act’.

March 5, 2013 Statements For the Record

 

Mr. Speaker, today I rise to recognize this week as National Invasive Species Awareness Week.

The National Invasive Species Awareness Week is an opportunity to learn about invasive species in our communities and the risk they pose to our environments, economy, and native wildlife. These non-native plants, animals, and other microorganisms are costing our local communities, states, and the federal government millions of dollars each year. One species of concern for my district is Asian Carp.
