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 Repeal Obamacare Mandate that Deters Businesses from Creating Jobs for Hard-Working Americans
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement on House passage of H.R. 30, the Save American Workers Act. The legislation would repeal the 30-hour threshold for classification as a full-time employee under Obamacare and restore it to 40 hours. “Forcing businesses to reduce hours and postpone hiring new workers is simply not fair to either growing small businesses or hard-working Americans. Small business owners in Tennessee have told me repeatedly that Obamacare’s mandate defining a full-time employee as someone working just 30 hours a week is hurting their ability both to create jobs and to provide workers with enough hours to provide for their families,” Blackburn said. “The SAW Act provides relief to small business owners by restoring the environment for those who want to expand their businesses and to help those that are unemployed or underemployed find a job. “By raising the threshold to 40 hours, this legislation will help put more money
Blackburn to Fight Obama Initiatives that Trample on States’ Rights
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s push for broadband policies that trample on states’ rights. “In Tennessee we have a term to describe people like President Obama — tone-deaf. At a time when Americans think the biggest problem facing our nation today is big government, you would think he'd have gotten the message by now. We don't need unelected bureaucrats like FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler dictating to our states what they can and can't do with respect to protecting their limited taxpayer dollars and private enterprises. As a former State Senator in Tennessee, I am offended that President Obama would repeatedly support policies that trample on states’ rights. “This ‘Washington knows best’ mentality is exactly why Americans put Republicans in control of Congress last November — to stop people like Barack Obama and Tom Wheeler. I will continue to work with my colleagues in the House and Senate to block
House Approves Blackburn Proposal to Freeze DACA & Stop President Obama’s Lawless Executive Amnesty
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today continued her fight to stop President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty with House passage of her amendment to freeze the President’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Blackburn's amendment was approved 218-209 as part of H.R. 240, the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act. Blackburn’s amendment prohibits any Federal funding, fees, or resources from being used to consider or adjudicate any new, renewal, or previously denied application for any alien requesting consideration for deferred action. “The American people have overwhelmingly rejected executive amnesty and spoke loud and clear last November when they sent Republicans to Congress to stop President Obama’s lawless actions, Blackburn said. “President Obama has circumvented Congress and unilaterally re-written immigration law from the oval office. I applaud the House for taking action today by approving my amendment to freeze the
No More Excuses. It’s Time to Build the Keystone Pipeline!
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement on House passage of H.R. 3, the Keystone XL Pipeline Act. “The American people are sick and tired of the excuses they see coming out of Washington. They don’t want excuses; they want solutions to the challenges we face as a nation. “Earlier today, the Nebraska Supreme Court removed one of President Obama’s last excuses for blocking the Keystone XL pipeline. It’s a no brainer. The Keystone pipeline has bipartisan support in Congress and overwhelming support from the American people because we understand, better than the President, the benefits this energy project will have for our country. “The Keystone pipeline will directly create 20,000 jobs, lower gas prices even further at the pump, and protect American energy security by allowing more than one million additional barrels of oil to flow to U.S. refineries. I look forward to the Senate passing this legislation and sending it to the desk of Pr
