    April 17, 2018 | Speeches and Statements

    Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

I want to thank my colleague and co-lead from Pennsylvania, Congressman Mike Kelly, for his leadership on this issue.

  • SPEECH: Rep. Murphy Floor Statement on H.J. Res. 2, a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
    April 12, 2018 | Speeches and Statements

    Thank you, Mr. Speaker. When the federal government spends far more than it receives, year after year, it threatens the long-term stability of our economy, compromises our children’s future, and undermines our security. Amending the Constitution to require a balanced budget is a serious step, but one that has become appropriate. That is because all other efforts to make Congress demonstrate a reasonable degree of fiscal discipline have failed. But not all proposed balanced budget amendments, or... Read more

    April 10, 2018 | Speeches and Statements

    Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I’m proud to be the lead Democrat on this bill, and I want to thank my colleague and friend, Congressman Fitzpatrick, for his leadership on this important issue.

The bill also requires the Department of Justice to evaluate the enforcement of stalking laws at the state and federal level, and to identify best practices... Read more

    March 15, 2018 | Speeches and Statements

    Thank you, Mr. Speaker. America has always been a nation of problem solvers. When our country is confronted with a seemingly impossible challenge, we tackle it head on.  We conduct research, we examine evidence, we perform studies, and we don’t quit until we’ve made meaningful progress. From reducing automobile and aviation deaths, to eradicating deadly diseases, we always rise to the challenge. In each case, a serious problem was claiming too many lives, and American determination—based on... Read more

  • SPEECH: Rep. Murphy Floor Statement on the Introduction of Deterring and Defeating Rocket and Missile Threats to Israel Act of 2018
    February 27, 2018 | Speeches and Statements

    Mr. Speaker: Today I am filing a bipartisan bill to ensure our ally Israel has adequate missile defenses. Threats to Israel come from Hezbollah in Lebanon; the Assad regime in Syria; Hamas in Gaza; and Iran. Each has an arsenal that can target Israel. The U.S. and Israel recently signed an agreement that the U.S. will provide Israel with $500 million dollars a year in missile defense funding, and that Israel can seek additional support when the two nations agree “exceptional circumstances” exist....

    February 7, 2018 | Speeches and Statements

    Madam Speaker, As a member of the class of 2000, I rise to celebrate the 325th anniversary of the College of William & Mary. William & Mary may be the second oldest college in America, but it is first in the hearts of its students and alumni. The college educated many of our Nation’s Founding Fathers and continues to take pride in producing graduates who enter public service, including four current Members of Congress. Like it has for so many others, William & Mary changed my life.... Read more

    February 6, 2018 | Speeches and Statements

    Today I am introducing a bipartisan bill that seeks to ensure that servicemembers who are leaving the military receive the specific training they need to make a successful transition to civilian life. The BATTLE for Servicemembers Act will better prepare servicemembers to attend college, to learn a technical trade, or to start a small business. The men and women in our all-volunteer military serve and sacrifice for this nation. When they decide to leave the armed forces, it is our nation's moral... Read more
