Scott Statement on Tempor. Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act


Congressman Robert C. "Bobby" Scott (D-Virginia) issued the following statement on H.R. 3630, the Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act of 2011: "I supported the two month extension in December so that Congress would have more time to develop a proposal that responsibly pays for the full year extension of the payroll tax cut. Unfortunately, I have to oppose this bill because it is not paid for. This bill adds $101.1 billion to the deficit in fiscal year 2012 alone, it cuts billions from preventive health programs, it scales back unemployment insurance at a time when too many Americans ...


Rep. Scott Hopeful For FCPA Guidance

Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, who heads the Criminal Division, said in November that the Justice Department would release guidance on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

CBC HOUR: HIGHER EDUCATION
Mr. SCOTT of Virginia: We know that a college education is extremely important to young people. It can transform their entire lives and open opportunities that are not available to those without a college education. We know that the good jobs require education. Ninety percent of the good-paying jobs in the future will require education past the high school level--and not necessarily a 4-year college, but some education and training past the high school level. Of course, that would include college. There's an old adage that the more you learn, the more you earn; the more education you get, the more likely you are to have a much higher income.Now, we know that the benefits of a decent education not only accrue to the individual, but also to the community; because those communities that have a well-educated constituency are much less likely to have to suffer as much crime or pay as much for social services as those communities that do not invest in education.And our national economic com
SMARTER SOLUTIONS FOR STUDENTS ACT
Mr. SCOTT of Virginia: I rise in opposition to the Making College More Expensive Act. In 2007, Congress cut the interest rate on student loans in half, from 6.8 percent to 3.4 percent, for 5 years. Last year, we extended that benefit for 1 more year. In a few weeks, on July 1, if Congress chooses not to act, the interest rate is scheduled to double back to the rate of 6.8 percent. Incredibly, this bill is so bad that, according to the Congressional Research Service, students will actually be better off if Congress were to let the rate double to 6.8 percent than to adopt this legislation. This bill is also bad because it makes rates variable for the life of the loan, therefore forcing students to sign for an interest rate that will fluctuate over time so they don't even know what it's going to be from one time to the next. This proposal essentially asks students to sign up for loans without knowing what they're signing up for.This is different from the Democratic proposals on variable
NUCLEAR TERRORISM CONVENTIONS IMPLEMENTATION AND SAFETY OF MARITIME NAVIGATION ACT OF 2013
Mr. SCOTT of Virginia: Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 1073, the Nuclear Terrorism Conventions Implementation and Safety of Maritime Navigation Act. This bipartisan legislation, which was reported favorably by the Judiciary Committee in March, is nearly identical to legislation that the House passed by voice vote in the last Congress. H.R. 1073 amends the Federal Criminal Code to conform our laws to our Nation's obligations under four international treaties that are part of an important effort to update international law for the post-September 11th era. Two of the treaties, the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism and the Convention for the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material, require party nations to better protect nuclear materials and to punish acts of nuclear terrorism.Two other treaties, amendments to the Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts Against the Safety of Maritime Navigation and the Protocol for Suppression of Unl
CELEBRATING BILL GRAY
Mr. SCOTT of Virginia: Mr. Speaker, it was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of our Alpha Phi Alpha brother, the Honorable William Herbert Gray III, on July 1, 2013. My thoughts and prayers are with Reverend Gray's family during this difficult time. Reverend Gray was a public servant in the truest sense of the word. He found many ways to effect change in the lives of the citizens of Philadelphia and, later, citizens across the country and the world. After his father stepped down as senior pastor of Bright Hope Baptist Church, he succeeded him and served as senior pastor for more than 35 years.Well-known as a consensus-builder in the Philadelphia community, Reverend Gray leveraged those relationships into an opportunity to represent the Second Congressional District of Pennsylvania and the U.S. House of Representatives. During his tenure, he rose to the influential positions of chairman of the Budget Committee and majority whip of the House of Representatives. He was the
