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 ...

Take a Taste of National Farmers Market Week
It’s National Farmers Market Week—the 18th consecutive year the Department of Agriculture celebrates the critical role local farmers play in the nation’s food system. And I couldn’t be more delighted to put farmers in the 7th district center stage. Long before eating organic became trendy, Tennessee farmers were tending large gardens and small fields of specialty crops, then selling them roadside to passing drivers. I’ve stopped at many of those country stands, picking up freshly-harvested okra, watermelons, green beans, zucchini, sweet corn and blueberries. I buy fruits and vegetables at these stands because they’re ripe, well-priced, and delicious. But I also know those dollars I hand over have a huge community impact. Growers selling locally stimulate local economies. Not only do these farmers return more than three times as much of their sales to the local economy than do chain competitors, they create
Always Learning
Guest blog post by Kyle, Congressman Blackburn's Communications Director During this August recess, I had the opportunity to join other congressional staff for an overview of the Tennessee Valley Authority’s operations in the Chattanooga area. The TVA plays a large role in the lives of so many Seventh District residents, and it is important to Congressman Blackburn, so it was essential to see firsthand why we need to make certain TVA remains productive and able to meet the energy needs of the Tennessee Valley. I was constantly impressed with the devotion and dedication to the customers every TVA employee exhibited as we looked at the various aspects of the TVA. Safe, Reliable and Economic Power On our trip, it was immediately clear that the TVA and its employees have reliability and affordability at the forefront of all their decisions. They strive to make sure that their power supply is always available and they utilize a number of practices to keep co
Can you hear me now?
Many of you reading this may not have been able to hear reports of the good work Congress has been doing for you this year. That may be because the mainstream media refuses to report it. For many of you, however, it is because you are one of the roughly 48 million Americans who suffer from hearing loss and choose to forego corrective devises due to costs or some other reason. Well, I hope you hear this: The Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act, which I authored along with Congressman Joe Kennedy of Massachusetts, just became law. As a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee I have worked to help lower drug costs and bring new treatments and innovative medical devices to patients everywhere. When we thoughtfully leverage competition and innovation in health care, patients benefit. Those suffering from hearing loss should be no exception. Critical technological advances like those that would allow a user to tune hearing aids through their smartphone, for example, are being
Blackburn, Kennedy Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Legislation Heads to President’s Desk
WASHINGTON – U.S. Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.), along with U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), on Thursday applauded final passage of the Over-the-Counter (OTC) Hearing Aid Act as part of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Reauthorization Act, which passed the Senate on Thursday with a strong bipartisan vote of 94-1. The legislation will make certain types of hearing aids available over the counter to Americans with mild to moderate hearing impairment. It also requires the FDA to write regulations ensuring that this new category of OTC hearing aids meets the same high standards for safety, consumer labeling and manufacturing protections as all medical devices, providing consumers the option of an FDA-regulated device at lower cost. "I am very pleased to see the FDA reauthorizatio
