Rep. Blackburn urges incandescent bulbs as gifts


Tennessee U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn says her family's holiday will be bright. She's filling Christmas stockings with light bulbs. Incandescent, of course. The Brentwood Republican has backed a provision to cut funding for an energy efficiency law scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, effectively ending the manufacture of incandescent light bulbs. The statute requires new bulbs of 100 watts be 27 times more energy efficient. A statement provided to The Tennessean by a Blackburn staffer said the old pear-shaped incandescent bulbs are "scheduled to go away at the end of the ...


Free markets should decide spectrum auction outcomes


America’s tech sector remains unrivaled around the world — a true bright spot in our otherwise stagnant economy. That’s the message I took away from the Consumer Electronics Show last week, where I met some of America’s best and brightest tech leaders and innovators. For this sector to drive U.S.-based prosperity, Congress must pass spectrum reform legislation to end the FCC’s decades-long mismanagement of this vital resource. In short, mobile users need more spectrum. As Nobel Prize-winning economist Ronald Coase first demonstrated more than 50 years ago, the ...


Rep. Marsha Blackburn's 7th Congr.District to leave Shelby


U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn's 7th Congressional District -- which includes Germantown and much of Collierville and Bartlett -- would move out of Shelby and Fayette counties under proposed new redistricting plans released Friday by the Tennessee legislature. In return, the 8th Congressional District now represented by Rep. Stephen Fincher will move much deeper into eastern Shelby County than it currently does, and the Memphis-based 9th Congressional District will extend upward to include the northwestern corner of Shelby County. State House Speaker Beth Harwell said the congressional map ...

Blackburn, Price Bill Would Provide Stability for Small Healthcare Practitioners
Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Tom Price (R-GA) have introduced H.R. 3018 theCoding Flexibility in Healthcare Act, which would allow providers to use either ICD-9 or ICD-10 for a period of 6 months. It would also allow the Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell to extend the glide path for an additional 6 months if she determines that providers need more time. “With industry surveys indicating that critical provider partners are behind schedule in deploying billing and electronic health record software, it is clear that some physicians will have no way to submit ICD-10 codes for payment,” Blackburn said. “For this reason, it is critical to establish a transition period which allows the healthcare industry to ease into compliance instead of “flipping a switch” on October 1st. Our legislation will provide stability to providers during this difficult transition period by establishing a period of 180 days where providers would be permitted to code
Blackburn Statement on Chattanooga Shootings
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today released the following statement regarding the shootings in Chattanooga: “I am deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence that has been carried out on our military facilities in Chattanooga today, resulting in the deaths of four Marines. This is a heartbreaking loss for our nation’s military and the entire Chattanooga community. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those involved and the people of Chattanooga. I know that the community will come together to help each other heal.”
Blackburn Says It's Time To Hold Planned Parenthood Accountable
  Energy and Commerce Committee Vice Chair Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) joined her Republican colleagues on the House floor tonight to discuss the Congressional investigation into videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors discussing the sale of fetal body parts. A transcript of Congressman Blackburn’s remarks follows below: “We come to the floor tonight as mothers and grandmothers and dads and granddads. We come with just such heavy hearts and such a burden for what we have found out, for what we have seen, and for what has been made public about Planned Parenthood. “I thought it was very interesting that the head of Planned Parenthood came out this week and said we think there are more videos to come. “That’s because they know they’ve been caught. They know they’re guilty. They know what they have done. “No amount of trying to go out and push it to the side is going to push this to the side. “That is why our
Blackburn, Green Call for Relocation of U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem
U.S. Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Gene Green (D-TX) today introduced H. Con. Res. 62, expressing the Sense of Congress that the United States Embassy in Israel should be located in Jerusalem. In 1995, the United States Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act requiring the President to move the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The legislation was passed to secure American recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Unfortunately, successive administrations have used a Presidential waiver authority, included in the bill, to delay that transfer due to national security concerns. However, today Jerusalem is a safe and secure city where we safely have maintained a large and busy consulate. “Throughout its history, Israel has always been a proven ally of the United States and freedom-loving nations throughout the world,” said Blackburn. “In a time when the Middle East is becoming increasingly volatile, Israel remains a source of stabi
