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 Leads Letter to DOJ Requesting Investigation into Planned Parenthood
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) was joined by 134 of her colleagues today in sending a formal request to United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch demanding the Department of Justice (DOJ) immediately investigate the practices of Planned Parenthood regarding the sale of fetal body parts following the release of two graphic videos. Blackburn serves as Vice Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which launched an investigation into the “abhorrent” videos earlier this month.  “The harvesting of human fetal body parts for sale is an activity, which shocks the conscience. Moreover, the tragic ethical considerations, potential for criminal violations, and involvement of taxpayer subsidies raise issues of great public importance,” Blackburn and her colleagues wrote in the letter to DOJ. 42 U.S.C. §289g-2 notes that “it shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly acquire, receive, or otherwise transfer any human fetal tissue for valuable consideration
Blackburn Supports Effort to Improve Care for Tennessee Veterans
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today joined her House colleagues in approving legislation to improve accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs and ensure our nation’s Veterans receive the care they deserve. H.R. 1994, the VA Accountability Act of 2015, would provide the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) increased flexibility in removing VA employees for performance misconduct. H.R. 1994 would strengthen accountability and performance for VA Senior Executive Service (SES) employees. It would also provide improved protections for whistleblowers including restricting bonus awards for supervisors who retaliate against whistleblowers. “It is outrageous that in the year since the VA scandal broke, only THREE people have actually been fired from their positions. This is unacceptable and our veterans deserve better,” Blackburn said. “We have an obligation to honor the sacrifices our veterans have made to keep our nation free by working to ensure
Blackburn Presented with Award for Conservative Excellence
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today was presented with the American Conservative Union (ACU) Award for Conservative Excellence by ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp.   The ACU, the nation’s largest grassroots conservative organization, was founded in 1964 to promote the principles of liberty and the strength of the Constitution. The award recognizes Congressman Blackburn’s 96% rating as part of ACU’s Annual Rating of Congress that rates members based on their voting record on issues important to conservatives. The nationwide average for Republican members of Congress is 76%. Since 1971, the Congressional ratings have become the gold standard in holding every member of Congress accountable for their voting record by scoring some of the most important issues facing the nation.   “It is an honor to accept this award that recognizes members who stay true to their conservative ideals and vote in the manner their constituents elected them to. I thank the ACU for their effo
Blackburn Supports Small Businesses by Reining in Regulations
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today voted in support of legislation that supports Tennessee’s small businesses by reining in regulations that have led to higher prices, lower wages, and a decline in economic growth. Blackburn issued the following statement in support of H.R. 427, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act (REINS ACT). “Almost 75% of small businesses reported that regulations were hurting their operating environment. With Tennessee home to so many of the best and brightest entrepreneurs, I continuously work to ensure the excessive regulations being imposed on their businesses by unelected bureaucrats in Washington are reined in. Instead of placing more costly regulations on American business owners, we need to create an environment that promotes innovation, growth, and job creation so that all Americans can lead a more prosperous life,” Blackburn said. The REINS Act restores legislative authority to Congress, a body that is he
