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 Mourns the Loss of Tennessee Legend - Howard Baker
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement regarding the passing of Senator Howard Baker. “Senator Baker was an institution, a legend, and a true Tennessee statesman. He will be remembered with great affection and deep appreciation for his service to the people of Tennessee and our nation during his years in the United States Senate, the Reagan White House and as Ambassador to Japan. Throughout his career Senator Baker worked tirelessly to ensure that the United States would forever remain a Shining City upon a Hill. His memory and hard work will forever guide freedom-loving people everywhere. My thoughts and prayers are with Howard's family today.”
Blackburn Applauds SCOTUS Decision Protecting People of Faith
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case. “By attacking the religious convictions of the Green family, the Obama Administration has once again shown its distain for the free expression of faith. With this ruling, I am relieved that the Supreme Court has somewhat blunted the President’s endless assault on our individual freedoms and liberties. Barack Obama and his administration need to remember that he was elected President, not king; and that people should be able to practice their faith without fear of big government trampling on the Judeo-Christian values upon which our great nation was founded,” Blackburn said. “Additionally, this is an important victory for the job creators in our economy. For the past six years, the Obama Administration has destroyed jobs with its insatiable desire to regulate and control. Successful business owners know how best to manage their affairs, not
Blackburn: NLRB Ruling is a Victory for America’s System of Checks and Balances
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement regarding today’s Supreme Court ruling that struck down President Obama’s 2012 recess appointments to the National Labor Relation’s Board (NLRB). “In a stunning 9-0 rebuke of our President, and former constitutional law professor, all Justices concluded ‘that the President lacked the power to make the recess appointments here at issue.’ The ruling places a cloud over the legitimacy of recent actions taken by the NLRB.” Blackburn said. “This decision is a victory for the American people and our system of checks and balances. Even the Supreme Court’s most liberal judges appointed by President Obama were unable to look past his lawless behavior. Contrary to President Obama’s belief, Executive authority does have limitations. It is my sincere hope that the President will learn from the Court’s decision and begin steering this country away from the constitutional crisis he is creating.”
Blackburn Statement on June Jobs Report
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement regarding the latest jobs numbers release by the Department of Labor today. “Despite Administration claims of jobs growth, the Obama economy stumbles along. 275,000 of the 288,000 jobs added were part-time. The President's pen and phone continue to keep nearly 40% of the country out of the workforce and without hope.”
