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 To Oppose House Funding Resolution
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement in opposition to the House Continuing Resolution, which fails to take the steps necessary to stop President Barack Obama’s executive actions to expand amnesty for illegal aliens. “Unfortunately, this spending package fails to take the necessary actions to defund the President’s lawless amnesty. As a result, I cannot vote in support of this measure. It is not fair that hard-working taxpayers in Tennessee will now have to compete for jobs with illegal aliens to whom the President is unilaterally granting work permits at a time when our workforce participation rate sits at a 36-year low and more than 90 million Americans are out of work. That is why I fought for and passed my bill in the House this summer to freeze the President’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. King Obama’s amnesty is turning America into a lawless open borders society.”
Blackburn Statement on President Obama’s Nashville Speech on Lawless Amnesty
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement ahead of President Obama’s speech in Nashville today where he will talk about his executive actions on amnesty. “America’s workforce participation rate sits at a 36-year low due to the Obama economy. More than 90 million Americans are out of work, so it is unfair to Tennessee families that this President wants to force hard-working taxpayers to compete for jobs with illegal aliens to whom he is unilaterally granting work permits. In addition, what is the President’s response to those immigrants who have been lawfully waiting in line for years to become citizens?Is that consistent with the societal “fairness” of which he so often speaks? “During the first two years of his term, the President had a Democrat super-majority in Congress and did nothing to address this immigration crisis that he now claims is such an emergency that he must go it alone. He kicked the immigration reform can down the road for

After 16 years of work, a bill to form a commission on the creation of a National Women’s History Museum (H.R. 863/S. 398) will soon become law. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY),Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) and Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) hailed the achievement as a major victory for women. “The legacies of women who paved the way before us and helped shape our nation deserve to be preserved and shared with our citizens,” said Rep. Blackburn. “I am honored to have worked with Rep. Maloney and Senators Collins and Mikulski to push this legislation across the finish line so that these stories can inspire future generations by illustrating how the bravery, patriotism, and perseverance of our nation’s women can truly make a difference. We look forward to this bill being signed into law by the President.” “When I first introduced legislation to form a National Women’s History Museum, I never dreame
Blackburn Works to Support Needs of Nation’s Military
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)) today issued the following statement on her vote in support of the Carl Levin and Howard P. ‘Buck’ McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015. “Like many installations across the country, Ft. Campbell is facing reductions that will have an impact on military readiness programs as well as installation infrastructure. That is why I was so pleased to secure provisions in this bill to address the needs of the thousands of military personnel who call Ft. Campbell home,” Blackburn said. “I strongly support this bill to ensure our warfighters and their families receive the care and support they have earned and deserve. “This legislation includes a provision I have routinely championed to restore the Army Flying Hours Program. For aviation units like the 101st Airborne, this training is not only vital to mission success but to the safety of our soldiers. This vital program provides aviation training resources for i
