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 Outraged Over Another Obama Broken Promise
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), referencing the new report released by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office, spoke out against President Obama's use of taxpayer dollars for abortion coverage. In pushing to pass the Affordable Health Care Act, President Obama promised the American people "under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions, and federal conscience laws will remain in place." Blackburn, the Vice Chair of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, said the following: The administration’s record of broken promises and rejection of transparency continues. The president’s words could not have been clearer – taxpayer dollars would not be used to pay for abortion – but we now see that this, like so many other promises about this law, has not held true. Sadly, the White House’s workaround was just another accounting gimmick that the administration likely never intended to enforce. 
Blackburn Votes to Take Action in Fight Against ISIL
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today voted in support of House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon’s amendment that would authorize the training and equipping of Syrian opposition groups to aid in the fight against ISIL. “While I support this amendment as a first step in our efforts to fight back against Islamic terrorists, it is my hope that we will re-center our focus and commit to annihilating ISIL from the face of the earth. President Obama must be more aggressive and more forthright when it comes to his strategy for destroying these terrorist thugs. “When it comes to being honest with the American people about ISIL and what is going to be required to win this fight, President Obama is living in fantasyland. To date, the President has failed to provide us with a clear definition of what a win or success in this fight would look like. Our goal must be to destroy these terrorists and ensure Americans are protected from threat they pose to our freedom and wa
Blackburn Supports Solutions to Spur Economic Growth, Create Jobs, and Make Energy More Affordable for Hard-Working American Families
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement regarding House passage of H.R. 2, the American Energy Solutions for Lower Costs and More American Jobs Act, and H.R. 4, the Jobs for America Act.   “More American energy means more American jobs. We all know that is true. That is why the House is acting once again to pass a package of common sense solutions that will help pave the way for American energy independence. This legislation is part of our ongoing effort to create jobs and make energy more affordable for hard-working American families. The commonsense proposals included in this package of bills will help spur economic growth and create good paying jobs right here at home through real solutions like building the Keystone Pipeline and speeding up exports of U.S. liquefied gas to our global allies. “The Jobs for America Act isn't a lasting government program created to hand out federal jobs and false promises. H.R. 4 proposes positive solutions to
