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 Works to Reform Mental Health Care System
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Vice Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, today released the following statement after House passage of the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act of 2015 (H.R. 2646), the most significant reform to our nation’s mental health programs in decades.   “While one in five Americans will face mental illness, the current state of mental health care in our country has left many behind. Four million Americans with serious mental illness receive no treatment at all. After several years of working on this legislation with my colleague Congressman Tim Murphy, this is a big step towards improving the lives of millions of Americans suffering from mental illness. “This legislation will fix the shortage of beds in our mental health facilities, expand the mental health workforce, empower parents and caregivers and help fund evidence-based care. Furthermore, it prioritizes suicide prevention and will authorize the Suicide Preven
Blackburn Introduces Plan Verification and Fairness Act
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today introduced H.R. 5589, the Plan Verification and Fairness Act, legislation that would ensure proper verification is required prior to receiving healthcare coverage under exchange special enrollment periods (SEPs). Under current law, individuals aren’t required to prove that they qualify for these special enrollment periods (SEPs) before the plan takes effect, leading to higher costs for patients playing by the rules and risk imbalance within exchange markets.    “Special enrollment periods have been abused, giving individuals presumptive eligibility instead of verified eligibility. Under Obamacare, a growing number of individuals have been signing up for health insurance under SEPs only to drop their coverage once they receive the needed medical services. We cannot continue to let this pattern go unchecked as it is driving up the cost of healthcare for all Americans. Our solution, The Plan Verification and Fairness Act, is a narr
Blackburn Applauds United States v. Texas Decision
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision in United States v. Texas, which upholds the lower court’s decision that the president’s use of executive action to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants is unlawful: “Today’s Supreme Court decision proves that Congress should pass and the President should sign H.R. 5272, the Blackburn-Cruz DACA language.  “For years I have fought to pass legislation to end the DACA program. This is a win for the Constitution and for the American people. President Obama’s use of a pen and phone to rewrite immigration laws from the oval office to implement executive amnesty was lawless from day one. SCOTUS has sent King Obama a powerful message,” Blackburn said.  Background As part of the Department of Homeland Security Funding bill last year, the House approved, by a vote of 218-209, Congressman Blackburn’s proposal to freeze the Deferred Action for Ch
Bi-Partisan Representatives Applaud CMS’ Proposed 90-Day Reporting Period
Representatives Ellmers (R-NC), Blackburn (R-TN), Rush (D-IL) and Matsui (D-CA) issued the below statements after the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released the proposed rule to reinstate a 90-day electronic health record (EHR) reporting period for physicians and hospitals under the Meaningful Use (MU) Program. Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-07) “This administration has constantly failed to offer patients, and the provider community, with the resources necessary in order to provide quality care. Providers and physicians in my district continue to tell me that CMS’ Meaningful Use criteria is simply that – meaningless. This legislation will allow flexibility with a 90-day reporting period and will give providers the opportunity to avoid harmful, bureaucratic penalties that drive up the costs of healthcare for all.” Congresswoman Renee Ellmers (NC-02) “I am pleased to see the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS) propose a reductio
