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, Eshoo Renew Effort to Protect Musicians’ Creative Content
House Energy and Commerce Committee Vice Chair Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA), Ranking Member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee, today re-introduced the Protecting the Rights of Musicians Act. This bipartisan legislation would condition the ability of broadcasters to opt for retransmission consent payments on whether radio stations they own pay performers for their music. Further, a provision that would prohibit the Federal Communications Commission from imposing radio chip mandates for mobile devices has been added to the bill. Blackburn and Eshoo first introduced this legislation during the 113th Congress. “Broadcasters have repeatedly told us that retransmission consent payments are fair because cable and satellite stations make millions by retransmitting local broadcast content. However, when it comes to music, the same broadcasters, many who own both TV and radio stations, sing a completely different tune,” Blackb

Blackburn Statement on House Passage of Budget Conference Agreement
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), a member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement on passage of the Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Conference Agreement. “Regularly I hear from our constituents that they want us to cut spending and pass a balanced budget. We are realizing that goal with the passage of the Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Conference Agreement,” Blackburn said. “The budget reduces spending by $5.3 trillion below the currently projected level and comes into balance within the budget window. It also includes provisions I fought for to strengthen defense and fund our men and women at Ft. Campbell, to provide a framework to begin reducing the federal workforce, to reduce federally held lands and property and to consider utilizing zero based budget principles.”
Blackburn Works to Protect Taxpayers from DOE Regulatory Overreach
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today continued her fight to rein in the Department of Energy (DOE) and protect Americans from regulatory overreach with provisions she secured in the Fiscal Year 2016 Energy and Water Appropriations Act. The House approved the bill 240-177. The bill includes an amendment offered by Congressman Blackburn that would prevent DOE from using funds to finalize, promulgate, or enforce a proposed rule that would eliminate the use of non-condensing natural gas home furnaces. On average, condensing furnaces cost $350 more than non-condensing furnaces and require as much as $2,200 in additional installation costs. DOE has estimated this could cost American consumers up to $12 billion to install condensing furnaces nationwide. “American families are struggling enough under the Obama economy without being saddled with additional costs because of more burdensome regulations being forced on them by bureaucrats at DOE,” Energy and Commerce Co
