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 ...

House Approves Blackburn Legislation to Combat Prescription Drug Abuse
The U.S. House of Representatives today approved legislation authored by Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to combat prescription drug abuse. H.R. 4709, the Ensuring Patient Access to Effective Drug Enforcement Act, which Blackburn authored with Reps. Tom Marino (R-PA), Peter Welch (D-VT), and Judy Chu (D-CA), would help prevent prescription drug abuse and diversion, and ensure patient access to necessary medications by creating a more collaborative partnership between drug manufacturers, wholesalers, retail pharmacies, and federal enforcement and oversight agencies. “Prescription drug abuse is an epidemic that is killing tens of thousands of Americans each year. It is a problem that is in great need of a solution,” Blackburn said. “That is why I worked with my colleagues Tom Marino, Peter Welch and Judy Chu, in sponsoring this bipartisan legislation to facilitate greater collaboration between industry stakeholders and regulators in our nation’s effort to combat presc
Blackburn Supports House Effort to Stop Obama’s Executive Overreach
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today voted in support of H. Res. 676 giving the House Authority to Initiate Litigation Against the Executive Branch. Blackburn had the following to say regarding this significant step to stop President Obama’s overreach of Executive Power: “The Constitution grants Congress the power to make laws, not the President. Yet, President Obama has repeatedly tried to circumvent Congress by dictating his own laws. The most glaring example of this is President Obama's numerous changes to his own health care law -- none of which were authorized by Congress. This is not a partisan issue. America’s chief executive must not be allowed to ignore our nation's Constitution. Throughout his Imperial Presidency, Congress has tried to rein in President Obama’s lawless behavior. In the face of even more blatant violations of the Constitution, this lawsuit is an appropriate step to restore order.”
Blackburn Acts to Block Obama’s Lawless Amnesty Program
The House of Representatives today approved H.R. 5272, legislation authored by Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) to freeze the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and prohibit President Obama from taking future executive actions to expand amnesty for illegal aliens. The bill was approved by a vote of 216-192. Congressman Blackburn’s legislation freezes the DACA program as of July 30, 2014 by prohibiting federal funds or resources from being used to adjudicate new applications under DACA. Blackburn’s bill also prohibits the Obama Administration from authorizing new deferred actions for any class of aliens and prevents authorization for work permits for aliens not lawfully present in the United States. This new language strengthens the original Blackburn-Cruz proposal by looking beyond the DACA program and ties the President’s hands on future executive actions. “President Obama’s lawlessness, his executive actions and the overreach of federal agencies
Blackburn Works to Improve Access to Care for America’s Veterans
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement regarding House passage of legislation to reform the Department of Veterans Affairs and make it easier for veterans to get help. By improving access to care from non-department of Veterans Affairs doctors, veterans will be able to see providers more quickly. The Conference Report on H.R. 3230, the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act, would improve the ability of veterans to seek private care. “Provisions I have supported will allow a veteran to seek care more quickly by increasing access to private care. This bill includes needed reforms to ensure that our veterans are able receive the care they deserve,” Blackburn said. “Through the years, I have heard from the veterans and their families in my district who have made it clear that they want the opportunity to seek needed medical care outside the VA due to long wait times and the unacceptably slow bureaucratic sy
