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 Statement on President Obama's AUMF Request
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today issued the following statement in response to President Obama's request for Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) against ISIL. “The President’s request for an AUMF is one that should not be taken lightly or considered without doing the due diligence that such a request requires. The House will proceed in the appropriate manner to review the strategy that would be implemented by such an order and the objectives set forth that our military would be required to achieve. As we proceed through this process, I will continue to visit with our military commanders and seek their input and guidance. ISIL poses a growing threat. We must have a plan to eliminate them.”
Blackburn Calls On FCC To Delay Net Neutrality Vote
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today called on Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler to delay the FCC Net Neutrality vote scheduled for February 26, 2015. “Allegations that the White House may have pressured Chairman Wheeler to adopt Title II Net Neutrality regulations are troubling. This was supposed to be an open process. We have watched the FCC go through a lengthy notice and comment period only to learn that the rules may have been written behind closed doors at the White House. “Chairman Wheeler indicated early on in this process a strong desire to follow the ‘blueprint’ set forth by the D.C. Circuit Court in Verizon v. FCC. He even referred to the decision as an ‘invitation’ that he ‘intended to accept’. Those comments make his sudden change of course more unusual and suspicious. The FCC is an independent agency and we expect them to operate as such. “These accusations are not the result of tabloid journalism, rather they app
Blackburn to Obama: Here’s Your Chance to Create True Shovel-Ready Jobs
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement in calling on President Obama to sign S. 1, the Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act, which has passed the House and Senate with bipartisan support. The legislation now heads to the President’s desk. “Even in the face of a veto threat, I joined my House colleagues once again, for the 11th time, in voting for and passing a Keystone Pipeline bill. Mr. President, listen to the American people; listen to your own party; stop catering to special interests and putting our country’s energy security at risk. “We are calling on the President to do the right thing and join Congress in approving the Keystone pipeline, which holds the potential to lower energy costs for hardworking Americans and boost our economy by creating over 40,000 jobs. The American people have demonstrated time and time again that they are ready for the Keystone pipeline. Mr. President, here’s your chance to create true shovel-ready jobs. I
Tennessee Representatives Lead Bipartisan Effort to Level Online Ticket Sales Playing Field for Fans of Live Entertainment
U.S. Representatives Marsha Blackburn (TN-07), Steve Cohen (TN-09), Scott DesJarlais (TN-04), and Jim Cooper (TN-05) today introduced H.R. 708, the Better Online Ticket Sales (BOTS) Act. H.R. 708 would make the use of bots to circumvent security measures employed by ticketing sites an “unfair and deceptive practice” under the Federal Trade Commission Act, and a crime under Title 18 of the U.S. Code. It would also create a private right of action whereby parties harmed by bots can sue in federal court to recover damages. “I am pleased to be working on a bi-partisan basis with the Tennessee delegation on this important legislation,” Rep. Blackburn said. “Scalpers have been taking advantage of computer hacking software (BOTS) to circumvent restrictions put in place by on-line ticketing agents for years. They purchase tickets in mass quantities and sell them at a considerably marked up rate, which hurts fans of live entertainment who get priced out of the market.
