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 RELEASES CLINTON FOUNDATION REPORT
BLACKBURN RELEASES CLINTON FOUNDATION REPORT     Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN07) has released a 78-page report entitled: The Clinton Foundation And The “India  Success Story”: Self-Serving Philanthropy, Watered-Down Drugs, and Money in sub-Saharan Africa.   The “India success story” details the Clinton Foundation’s partnership with drug companies Ranbaxy, Matrix and Cipla in the subcontinent beginning in October 23, 2003.  The Foundation joined the drug companies with the goal of combating HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa by getting less expensive medications into afflicted countries. This relationship saw the companies mature quickly and become acquisition targets for larger global pharmaceutical entities.  It also resulted in encouragement for the disregard of intellectual property standards, the likely use of taxpayer money, through PEPFAR, to distribute watered down drugs that “subjected patients to increased r
Blackburn, Tonko Work on Bipartisan Effort to Level Online Ticket Sales Playing Field for Fans of Live Entertainment
WASHINGTON- Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Paul D. Tonko (D-NY) commended passage of H.R. 5104—The Better Online Ticket Sales Act (BOTS). This legislation makes the use of computer hacking software (BOTS) to circumvent security measures employed by ticketing sites an “unfair and deceptive practice” under the Federal Trade Commission Act. “For years ticket scalpers have been taking advantage of computer hacking software (BOTS) to overwhelm on-line ticketing websites with requests. The BOTS Act will make it an unfair and deceptive practice to use a bot to violate the terms and conditions of a ticketing site and will allow the FTC to take action against online scalpers. These anti-consumer tactics have no place in our society and it’s time that we take action to protect fans of live entertainment. I encourage my Senate colleagues to pass this bi-partisan legislation immediately,” said Blackburn. “People work hard and save money to see a performance or a
Blackburn Applauds Passage of H.R. 375
WASHINGTON D.C - U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) applauds passage of H.R. 375 - To designate the Federal building and United States courthouse located at 719 Church Street in Nashville, Tennessee, as the “Fred D. Thompson Federal Building and United States Courthouse” “Fred Thompson was a neighbor, a friend, and a trusted political voice. Dedicated to first principles and conservative values from the start of his career in Sen. Howard Baker’s office, Fred Thompson made a lasting impression on the state of Tennessee. He loved our state and her people,” said Blackburn. “A native of Lawrence County, Thompson went on to receive degrees from the University of Memphis and Vanderbilt University. He began his career in Nashville and excelled in every endeavor. Passing this legislation to allow the federal courthouse in Nashville to bear his name is an appropriate way to show our respect for his commitment to the people of Tennessee. I look forward to seeing this
