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 Congratulates Appointees to National Women's History Museum Commission
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement on Speaker John Boehner's appointments of former U.S. Representative Marilyn Musgrave and Mrs. Kathy Wills Wright to serve on the commission to establish a National Women's History Museum. “I commend Speaker Boehner for picking two established, conservative women to help lead the effort in moving forward this project to build a museum honoring the legacies of the women who helped shape our nation,” Blackburn said. “Congratulations to Marilyn and Kathy on their appointments to this historic commission.” Congressman Blackburn along with Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) led the bipartisan effort in the House to establish this commission to study the establishment of a National Women's History Museum.
Blackburn Supports Balanced Budget for a Stronger America
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), who is a member of the Budget Committee, issued the following statement regarding House passage of the Fiscal Year 2016 House Republican Budget Resolution. “$5.5 trillion less than what is currently projected is what our Republican budget will spend over the next decade,” Blackburn said. “This is a solid step toward fiscal responsibility for our nation, both for today and future generations. There are several provisions that I have championed through the budget process that made it into the final product approved by the House. In addition, the Budget will include language to change the budget process by having agencies utilize Zero-Based Budgeting. This good government provision requires federal agencies to take stock and evaluate their programs, identify the costs and benefits of those programs, and reduce or eliminate wasteful and ineffective programs. In addition, I was successful in achieving the inclusion of a provision to allow senio
Blackburn-Welch Data Security Bill Clears First Hurdle
House Energy and Commerce Committee Vice Chair Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement regarding passage of the Data Security and Breach Notification Act by the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade. Blackburn authored the legislation with Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT). “This is an important time for data security,” Blackburn said. “2014 was correctly dubbed ‘The Year of The Breach’ and Congress must take action. The American people are watching. “I want to thank Chairman Burgess and Congressman Welch for their leadership on this issue. We have worked hard in this bipartisan effort to produce language that will protect consumers by improving data security protections and setting a national breach notification standard for industry. Today was the first step toward this legislation becoming law. I look forward to continuing to work with all interested parties as we move this bill through the legislative process.”
Blackburn Acts to Provide Healthcare Certainty for Medicare Enrollees
House Energy and Commerce Committee Vice Chair Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today joined her House colleagues in approving a plan to permanently replace Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR). Blackburn made the following comments on House passage of H.R. 2, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act: “We have all heard from constituents that tell us stories of the difficulties they’ve had finding a doctor who is taking new Medicare patients. SGR -- the Sustainable Growth Rate -- has shared responsibility for this. The constant threat of double digit cuts in reimbursements has made it difficult for doctors to keep their doors open and see seniors. “H.R. 2 goes to heart of this access problem by finally eliminating the flawed SGR. It’s a win-win-win for seniors, local healthcare providers, and hard-working taxpayers. The legislation approved by the House today is a common sense solution that provides certainty for healthcare providers and Medicare enrollees. In additi
