Statements for the Record
Mr. Speaker, The American people expect Congress to work together to create jobs and grow our economy. We heard that message loud and clear in last week’s election. We have an opportunity to save 75,000 American jobs RIGHT NOW by extending the Wind Production Tax Credit.
Mr. Speaker, I rise in opposition to H.R. 5912. This is a misguided bill that repeals public financing of our national political conventions and allows moneyed special-interests to complete their corporate buyout of America’s electoral process.
Mr. Speaker, I rise today in strong support of H.Res. 786. I join President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton and my colleagues in Congress in condemning these attacks in the strongest possible terms. The attacks on our embassies in Cairo, Egypt and Sana, Yemen and the violent assault on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya were shocking and unacceptable.
The House should not be spending its limited floor time on this bill. The House should be debating the American Jobs Act – the President’s plan to put nearly 2 million Americans back to work without adding a dime to the deficit.

Dear Representative McCollum,
Mr. Speaker, today I rise to honor the 100th anniversary of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union 110 in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and the hundreds of working families the union represents.
Mr. Speaker, today I rise to honor the Historic Pilgrim Baptist Church of Saint Paul, and its 150 years of rich history and dedicated service to our community.
