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 Provisions Included in House GOP Obamacare Replacement
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today released the following statement in response to the reveal of the House Republican’s Obamacare replacement:    “Two provisions I have authored were secured in the House GOP Obamacare replacement; my across-state-lines provision, H.R. 543, and expanding the use of health savings accounts, H.R. 4090. By allowing consumers to purchase insurance across-state-lines, we are empowering them with more choices and a more competitive environment that will lower the price of healthcare policies. Across-state-lines purchasing along with expanding the use of health savings accounts will put patients back in the driver’s seat and allow them to choose the plan that best fits them. Patients will no longer face the one-size-fits-all failed policies of Obamacare.    “We’ve heard time and time again from constituents who tell us their insurance policies are simply too expensive to use. What we’ve learned through Obamacare is th
Blackburn Applauds United States v. Texas Decision
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision in United States v. Texas, which upholds the lower court’s decision that the president’s use of executive action to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants is unlawful: “Today’s Supreme Court decision proves that Congress should pass and the President should sign H.R. 5272, the Blackburn-Cruz DACA language.  “For years I have fought to pass legislation to end the DACA program. This is a win for the Constitution and for the American people. President Obama’s use of a pen and phone to rewrite immigration laws from the oval office to implement executive amnesty was lawless from day one. SCOTUS has sent King Obama a powerful message,” Blackburn said.  Background As part of the Department of Homeland Security Funding bill last year, the House approved, by a vote of 218-209, Congressman Blackburn’s proposal to freeze the Deferred Action for Ch
Blackburn Works to Fund Our Military, Fort Campbell
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) applauded passage of H.R. 5293—the Department of Defense Appropriations Act for FY 2017.  “As our nation faces unprecedented threats at home and abroad, we must ensure our military men and women have the necessary funding for mission success. The Department of Defense Apportions Act prioritizes military training and readiness while also meeting the needs of our troops at home by funding a 2.1% pay raise, $450 million for medical facility upgrades, $407 million for medical research and $296 million for sexual assault prevention and response.  “The recent terrorist attack in Orlando is a grim reminder that the world we live in is not inherently safe and we must have the personnel and capabilities to respond and protect our national interests. Soldiers from Ft. Campbell are always tasked with responding to threats to our security around the globe. We would be putting their lives in increased danger by reducing their numerical st
House Takes Action to Combat Radical Islamic Extremism
Though President Obama can’t so much as utter the words “radical Islamic extremism,” the House has been acting to combat radicalization in America and to enhance counterterrorism efforts. Last week, House Republicans unveiled a plan to keep Americans safe. This proposal includes more than 67 detailed policy recommendations, including several specifically focused on defeating radical Islamic terrorism at home and abroad. It discusses the importance of countering extremist ideology by amplifying countervailing views from former radicals and the need to push back against the surge of online radicalization. It also calls on the president to present a clear strategy to defeat ISIS. In addition, below is the list of national security bills that have passed the House this Congress.
