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 Op-Ed: A Bipartisan Case for Fair Play Fair Pay Act (Exclusive)
Op-Ed: A Bipartisan Case for Fair Play Fair Pay Act (Exclusive) Billboard.com by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) In 2015, countless new technologies bring us music and entertainment, yet we have no uniform licensing system in place to ensure that digital, satellite and AM/FM radio play by the same rules. The United States is behind the times, and we are long overdue for an update that will see performing artists fairly compensated for their work. Due to special-interest exemptions, short-term reactions to changing technologies and congressional gridlock, the law that governs royalty payments is inconsistent and unfair. New technologies are put at a disadvantage by the current licensing system: Internet broadcasters like Pandora pay royalty rates comparable to those that would have been negotiated in the free market, while cable and satellite providers pay a below-market rate under a "grandfathered
Blackburn Statement on Rejection of Keystone XL Pipeline
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today released the following statement in response to President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL Oil Pipeline: “The Keystone pipeline has bipartisan support in Congress and overwhelming support from the American people because we understand, better than the President, the benefits this energy project will have for our country. Approving it would have been a no-brainer – it would directly create thousands of U.S. jobs, lower gas prices even further at the pump, and protect American energy security by allowing more than one million additional barrels of oil to flow to U.S. refineries. Today the President put liberal special interests over the needs of the American people,” Blackburn said.
Blackburn Op-Ed: An Investigation in Defense of Life
An Investigation in Defense of Life U.S. News & World Report By Marsha Blackburn The abhorrent videos released over the last several months detailing abortion practices and treatment of infant lives have shaken and startled compassionate Americans across the country. These videos raise serious questions that deserve a thorough examination, as people have reacted with disgust as they have seen the video footage. Constituents, regardless of being anti-abortion or pro-abortion rights, are demanding we get answers to their questions about how we treat and protect life in this country and details of how this practice of selling baby body parts transpires. The content in these videos is despicable and difficult to watch, but we cannot ignore what is an unsettling topic. This is a discussion our country must have. No issue is more deserving of our undivided attention than protecting the dignity of human l
This Week in Washington: 11.2-11.6
Fellow Americans –   We lost a much loved Tennessean this week. Though Fred Thompson’s roots were in Tennessee, his service spanned far past the borders of our state and into the lives and homes of all Americans. To my family, and to many in Middle Tennessee, Fred was a neighbor, a friend and a trusted political voice. Many of you have shared with me your memories of Fred and here I share with you my own. His passing brings great sadness to all and our prayers are with his wife Jeri and the entire Thompson family. Every time I hear from you, no matter what the issue is, there is one underlying theme – you want to see action. Under the leadership of Speaker Paul Ryan the House now has a clean slate to move forward and to take that action. We will work together to rein in regulations and spending, enact tax reforms that benefit all Americans, and strengthen our national security. In case you missed it, I discussed our new leadership in depth with Fox News this weekend.
