WASHINGTON, DC - Former President Bill Clinton, who turned 58 on August 19 and is currently recovering from heart surgery, was honored by a Congressional resolution marking his birthday that passed the U.S. House of Representative today (H Res 717). The resolution, sponsored by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (NY-14), also came with wishes for good health on the House floor today.
WASHINGTON, DC - In response to a report published today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, showing high levels of lasting illness among rescue and recovery workers to the September 11, 2001 attacks, Congresswoman Maloney released the following statement:
WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Representatives Christopher Shays (R-CT), Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats and International Relations, and Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) announced they will introduce the House version of the 9/11 Commission Report Implementation Act. In addition, Shays and Maloney announced that they will introduce a resolution to amend House rules, reorganizing Congressional oversight of intelligence and homeland security to make it more effective and efficient, as recommended by the 9/11 Commission.
WASHINGTON, DC - Despite reports today suggesting that the Census Bureau has ended its policy of supplying law enforcement with information on Arab-Americans, Rep. Carolyn Maloney (NY-14), former Ranking Member of the House Census Subcommittee, says that while a level of bureaucracy was added, not much has changed. During the Bush Administration, Census Bureau employees have freely supplied the Department of Homeland Security with information on where Arab-Americans live. Under the new policy announced today, an Associate Director of the Bureau must now approve such an action.
