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, Tonko Lead Bipartisan Effort to Level Online Ticket Sales Playing Field for Fans of Live Entertainment
U.S. Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Paul D. Tonko (D-NY) introduced the Better Online Ticket Sales (BOTS) Act of 2016. This legislation would make 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, 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. “Scalpers have been taking advantage of computer hacking software (BOTS) to circumvent restrictions put in place by online ticketing agents for years. They purchase tickets in mass quantities and sell them at a drastically inflated rate, which unfairly prices most fans of live entertainment out of the market. The entertainers go to great lengths to build relationships with their fans and ensure that they will have access to shows, but scalpers are decimating this experience. The
National Health Leaders Recognize U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn For Leadership in Healthcare Innovation
The Healthcare Leadership Council (HLC), a coalition of leaders of the nation’s premier health care companies and organizations, has honored U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn as a “Champion of Healthcare Innovation” at an award ceremony in Washington, DC. The award presentation took place at the Council’s annual Healthcare Innovations Expo on Capitol Hill. The day-long event is dedicated to showcasing new developments in health care technologies, treatments and practices.  This year’s event featured, among other displays, emerging cancer therapies, virtual reality technologies to assist veterans with post-combat stress challenges, and uses of health data sharing to combat opioid abuse and addiction. “We’re on the verge of a remarkable era in American healthcare.  Genomic and biologic research, improved data analytics, and advanced mobile technologies are enabling people to live longer, healthier lives,” said HLC President Mary R. Grealy.  “To conti
Blackburn: "Only President Obama Would Replace A Mandate With Another Mandate"
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) today issued the following statement in support of Little Sisters of the Poor as the Supreme Court hears oral arguments from them in their challenge to President Obama’s so-called accommodation in regards to the Obamacare mandate that would violate religious freedom in America:   "Only President Obama would replace a mandate with another mandate. It begs the question: Is government-run health care more important than freedom? I stand by Little Sisters of the Poor and reject the President's so-called accommodation. Not only is it an assault on religious freedom, it forces devastating fines on nonprofits that care for the most vulnerable among us,” Blackburn said.
Obamacare Official Mislead Congress and the American People
Congressman Marsha Blackburn, Vice Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, today commented on a new report that chronicles misleading testimony given by CMS Acting Administrator Andy Slavitt at an Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee hearing on December 8, 2015. The report states, “[i]n his opening remarks before the committee, Mr. Slavitt testified that ‘over $200 million of the original grant awards have already been returned to the federal government, and we’re in the process of collecting and returning more.’” According to documents subsequently provided to the Committee by CMS, the federal government has only reclaimed $21.5 million from the 17 state-based exchanges. Additionally, the $21.5 million did not represent money that had been “recouped,” but rather funds that were leftover because the grant had expired or the funds were no longer needed.    Since the hearing, CMS has refused to correct the record, and now insists that the $
