House Majority Leader Axel Storm Praises the Congressional Passing of the Drug Free Parks Bill Washington,DC- House Majority Leader Axel Storm spoke to members after the Drug Free parks Bill cleared it's passing in the Senate "I am proud to see that the Drug Free Parks Bill passed through both chambers of congress. A bill which started off as being very vague and having many flaws ended up becoming a bipartisan piece of legislation that will help protect our communities and keep the vile acts of drug sale from our communities. This bill is a first step towards many in keeping our communities drug free, and I look forward to working with my Republicans colleagues to keep our communities safe".

  4. Democrats Reintroduce the Protecting American Textile Manufacturing Act Washinton,DC- Today House Majority Leader Axel Storm heralded his party's hard work for keeping it promise to protect blue collar workers and the textile industry. Last session Democrats, lead by former congressman Seymour, introduced the Protecting American Textile Manufacturing Act, which will strengthen the position of the American textile industry while also preventing any textile trade from the Soviet union. This bill through both chambers of congress with sweeping numbers but was eventually vetoed by former President Ronald Reagan. The House Majority Leader had this to say "The Protecting American Textile Manufacturing Act is common sense. It not secures the American Textile industry but it deals a big blow to repressive Soviet Union and South African Apartheid Government.. When President Reagan vetoed this bill last session, I was very disappointed. This bill had both bipartisan and public support, but Former President Reagan chose to protect the Soviet Union over protecting our textile workers. I am confident that since we have new leadership in the white house and in congress, this bill will finally become law American workers should never have to compete with people who commit such vile human rights violations. This is why this bill is crucial.".

    Debate: No Seat Belt, No Sale Act

    Madam Speaker, The Gentlemen from California also asked how do manufacturers feel about seat belts?, well I'll point out that the three=pronged sea belt used in cars was invented by an engineer from volvo, which also spurred the mandatory seat-belt legislation in 1968. I Yield

    Debate: No Seat Belt, No Sale Act

    Madam Speaker, I am astonished by the minority insistence that protecting the lives of innocent Americans and children is not important or is an overstep in jurisdiction. Requiring that seat-belts be placed in cars, buses or any automobile is not an overreach, it;s prioritizing the lives and safety of Americans all over this nation. the Department of Transportation has already released reports of over 400,000 deaths occurring with the last year due to car crash fatalities and among that over 1,350 children were killed. I would ask the Gentlemen from California in good faith, does he think we should sit idly by and allow the lives of children to be lost when we can take action?, does he believe it is out of the jurisdiction of federal government to save lives?. This isn't the first seat belt law to enter these chambers. In fact the first federal seat belt law in occurred in 1968 with Title 49 of the United States Code, Chapter 301, Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. That law mandated that all seat belts be placed in all designated seating areas, and what this law does now is mandate them to be placed in all vehicles, including the transportation that our children take to get to school everyday. Any accusation of overstepping boundaries, is simply the minority trying everyday to please their donors. In this very chamber we have a sponsor of a bill who proposes that we get rid of speed limits. Madam Speaker, can you imagine what would happen if that bill to get rid of speed limits were to pass these chambers with our current seat belt laws. It will be chaos,car crash fatality rates would skyrocket. let's be responsible and let's be proactive. I Yied

  11. Madam Speaker, I rise in support of this bill. While i would like to advocate for it's swift passage, I understand the legislative process is long but rewarding one. As written in the book of Proverbs, "Iron sharpens Iron", and I dutifully believe that my colleague from North Carolina objected to the Unanimous consent of this bill because he has an amendment to offer. This bill will do wonders for our Senior citizen Americans who find it hard to afford their medication. For too long have our elderly american have to worry about breaking their wallets and bank accounts just to ensure that they can remain healthy and spend time with their loved ones. This bill is not only commonsense but it is also important to the fabric of our family, an American virtue. So I ask my colleague from North Carolina why did he object and what qualms does he have with this bill. I Yield
  12. Mr.Chairman, I offer the following amendment. I motion to strike section 2 and amend it with . I also motion to amend the PES to read
  13. Debate on this legislation shall commence for 24 hours. I will also be handing the gavel back to Chairman Teddy King
