July 6, 2011 Congressional Record
The statement said in part:
"It is my distinct pleasure to honor the staff of ProCon.org and wish them continued successes in their service to the American public. Their unbiased and truthful presentation makes a tremendous contribution to the political system."
ProCon.org is a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan public charity which provides millions of readers with free research on important and controversial social issues in order to stimulate critical thinking and educate without bias.
Congressman Andrews serves on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce and two of its subcommittees: Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions (ranking member) and Higher Education and Workforce Training. He also serves on the House Committee on Armed Services and two of its subcommittees.
"Given the polarization of so many important issues today, thinking critically is vitally important to making better decisions about ourselves, our families, our country, and this shrinking globe we inhabit.
Critical thinking also means recognizing that the views of a cab driver, mail carrier, or pizza delivery person can be just as important and valid as someone of position or higher education, such as a senior government official, five-star general, rock star, professor, or famous athlete.
ProCon.org websites are free of charge and require no registration. The websites have been referenced over 360 times by the general media, cited 36 times by the governments of 11 countries (including 17 U.S. states and six U.S. federal agencies), and used in over 1,800 schools in all 50 U.S. states and 37 countries.
