Cory on the Senate floor discussing the PORTS Act

Date: 06/17/2015

Today, I took to the Senate floor to discuss the PORTS Act, legislation I've introduced to protect the American economy from crippling labor disputes at our seaports. Colorado exports countless goods overseas, and slowdowns or shutdowns at American ports threaten jobs in our state. The President already has the power to intervene in shutdowns through the Taft-Hartley Act. But as we saw in the recent West Coast port slowdown, the President can also refuse to act. My bill would strengthen and expand Taft-Hartley by granting state governors some powers currently reserved for the President to end labor disruptions.

Date: 06/16/2015

In my opening statement, I spoke about the importance of the Trans-Pacific Partnership now being negotiated, and how the United States can help write the rules for international trade. When the United States is absent in international trade, other countries, including China, will rush to fill the vacuum with policies and programs that benefit themselves rather than promoting high standards and transparency.

I highlighted the over two hundred jobs supported by the mine, as well as the millions in state and federal tax dollars that the mine contributes. Closing the Colowyo Mine would raise energy prices in Colorado and also in neighboring states which participate in the energy cooperative which administers the mine. I also entered into the record several letters from Colorado officials, including John W. Hickenlooper, Congressman Scott Tipton and Congressman Ed Perlmutter, calling on the Interior Department to appeal the Court ruling that is endangering this important mine.

Date: 06/03/2015

Court decision threatening the Colowyo mine

Date: 05/19/2015

Today, at a Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources hearing, I spoke up about the court decision threatening the Colowyo mine in Northwestern Colorado.

Threat that North Korea poses to East Asia and the United States.

Date: 05/13/2015

On the Senate floor today, I talked about the threat that North Korea poses to the security of East Asia and the United States.

At an Foreign Relations Committee budget oversight hearing today, I asked the State Department Assistant Secretary Bathsheba Nell Crocker about the U.N.'s bias against Israel, and whether the United States is getting its money's worth from our considerable contributions to the U.N.
