Transcript by Newsy**** BY CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource U.S. news analysis from Newsy As President Obama puts the finishing touches on his State of the Union address - lawmakers and the media are busy picking out corsages. KSWB-TV: “Tomorrow will be date night for Congress, as Republicans and Democrats will sit together for the annual speech.” HLN: “Date night in D.C. ... Kind of like boy/girl, boy/girl, Republican/Democrat.” It’s like prom night on Capitol Hill. And Democratic Senator Mark Udall is the chairman of the prom committee. He’s proposing Democrats and Republicans sit together at the president’s address as a symbol of civility following the shooting rampage in Arizona earlier this month. And lawmakers are playing along -- for the most part, anyway. ABC: SEN. KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON: “I don't have a date.” SEN. KENT CONRAD: “Kay, I'm available.” (LAUGHTER) (FLASH) CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR: “Senator Conrad, have you picked a date?” SEN. KENT CONRAD: “I just asked Kay.” (LAUGHTER) Fox News: SEN. DICK DURBIN (D-IL): “My new Senate Republican colleague from Illinois Mark Kirk and I will sit together. I'm bringing the popcorn and he is bringing a coke with two straws.” By Sunday - more than 50 members of Congress had paired off. And according to a new CNN poll - most Americans like the idea - with 72 percent saying they want to see the mixed seating. The president is set to discuss jobs, the deficit, and the GOP’s health care repeal efforts. But Politico’s Carol Lee and Glenn Thrush are among the commentators who worry - the theatrics of Congressional “date night” could trump substance. “Still, the event offers the president the largest audience he’ll get all year, one that rivals the viewership for the Academy Awards. Obama’s first State of the Union address, last year, drew 48 million viewers...” But in guest commentary for The Washington Post - leadership consultant Carol Kinsey Goman says you can joke about the theatrics - but there’s real potential in this idea. “Congress is right to understand that where they sit sends a signal about their power dynamics and willingness to cooperate... I'm not saying that this symbolic seating arrangement one evening will foster actual, long-term collaboration. But I do think it's at least a scoot in the right direction.” There IS at least one bi-PARTY-san pooper -- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says he’s planning to sit where he’s always sat. Wanna see who’s paired off so far? Check out the link in our transcript section. Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy

Zix Corporation Issues Statement Supporting Bipartisan Push for Medicare e-Prescribing Requirement Zix Corporation (ZixCorp®), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), the leader in hosted services for email encryption and e-prescribing, issued a statement today supporting the bipartisan efforts to require electronic prescribing for Medicare prescriptions. On June 6, Senator Max Baucus (D- MT), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, introduced the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 (S. 3101). This bill included positive incentives beginning in 2009 and a requirement to write Medicare prescriptions using a qualified e-prescribing system starting in 2011, enforced by financial penalties on physicians who fail to e-prescribe after that date. "ZixCorp applauds the bipartisan efforts in Congress to promote the widespread adoption of e-prescribing, which also has the support of the Administration," said Rick Spurr, chief executive officer for ZixCorp. "We believe that Medicare, as the largest payor in the United States, can significantly accelerate the utilization of this technology through financial incentives to the physician. We're pleased to offer a system that meets the criteria defined by the bill and anticipate that this legislation, should it become law, will have a considerable impact on the e-prescribing industry." As the leader in the e-prescribing industry, ZixCorp has been a pioneer in successfully providing this life-saving technology to doctors. ZixCorp has continued to maintain its focus on primary care, with a particular emphasis on small practices, since 75 percent of those physicians in the United States are in practices of 5 or fewer physicians.

Video Source/ Johnson Controls: (*******3blmedia****/CSR-Profiles/Johnson-Controls) Washington, June 14, 2013 /3BL Media/Corporate Social Responsibility – Public and private sector leaders exchanged ideas yesterday to address the importance of energy efficiency in a changing economy at the 24th annual Energy Efficiency Forum, co-hosted by Johnson Controls and the United States Energy Association, held in Washington, D.C. Energy experts, legislators and business leaders outlined the importance of keeping energy efficiency at the forefront of national research and policy making to make communities and the world more secure, resilient and sustainable. Representatives discuss new bipartisan energy efficiency efforts U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and U.S. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), who sit on the Energy and Commerce Committee, discussed forthcoming bipartisan energy efficiency efforts at the forum. The new bipartisan efforts will focus on encouraging more energy efficiency in government and businesses to save money, create local jobs and sustain energy resources. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chair delivers afternoon keynote Keynote speaker Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) addressed the more than 300 forum attendees. “Energy efficiency is a good investment – it saves households and business owners money, creates jobs and moves our country toward a more competitive, low-carbon economy,” Wyden said. “But passing an energy efficiency bill through Congress will take more than common sense and bipartisan support. It’s going to take the businesses, efficiency advocates, consumers and government officials who are backing this issue to send a message that now is the time to bring an efficiency bill to a vote.” Pulitzer Prize winning author focuses on energy efficiency Daniel Yergin provided insight on his recent book, The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World. Yergin is one of America’s most influential energy experts, vice chairman of IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates and a Pulitzer Prize winning author. “Energy efficiency is one of our nation’s greatest energy resources. It is also embedded throughout our economy. Capturing it requires technology, mindset, commitment, and plain old street smarts. But the payback can be huge,” said Yergin. “The reason I focused on energy efficiency at the conclusion of The Quest is because of its strategic importance to our country’s energy future.” New energy efficiency research released by Johnson Controls President Dave Myers, president, Johnson Controls, Building Efficiency, shared highlights of the seventh annual Energy Efficiency Indicator Survey, which gauges the perceptions of more than 3,000 building owners and operators around the world on issues related to energy management practices, energy efficiency and renewable energy investment plans, clean technology integration and project financing approaches. This year’s survey indicated public goals and private financing continue to push global momentum for energy efficiency. In fact, energy efficiency interest increased 116 percent globally since 2010, with those who set goals making the greatest strides in reducing energy use. “We need public officials and private investors to work together to reduce the market’s uncertainty and capture momentum toward a more energy efficient global economy,” said Myers. The Energy Efficiency Indicator survey is led by Johnson Controls’ Institute for Building Efficiency in partnership with the International Facility Management Association and the Urban Land Institute.

Transcript by Newsy**** BY CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource political video news analysis from Newsy. SEN. MARK UDALL (D-Col.): “...this isn't war. This is politics. It's about governing our country. ... We all agree in our private conversations that the rhetoric has been over the top. We've got to throttle it back.” If there’s one word that’s always in style in Washington, it’s “bipartisan.” And in the spirit of bipartisanship, one Democratic senator from Colorado is proposing a mixed seating arrangement at President Barack Obama’s upcoming State of the Union address. Traditionally, Republicans sit on one side -- Democrats the other. But there are no official seating arrangements. (Video from KPIX) In a letter to colleagues, Senator Mark Udall wrote, “Instead of sitting in our usual partisan divide, let us agree to have Democrats and Republicans sitting side by side... The choreographed standing and clapping of one side of the room -- while the other side sits -- is unbecoming of a serious institution.” In response, The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent predicts... “The mixed seating is obviously a cosmetic gesture, but in a town that tends to worship bipartisan gestures, talk about the idea is likely to get a lot of attention.” And get a lot of attention it did -- at least in some political circles. A guest on MSNBC says, great idea -- especially in the wake of Saturday’s shooting rampage in Arizona that many attribute to a vitriolic political climate in Washington. BILL PRESS, RADIO HOST: “But all of us are sick of the fact that the state of the union, as Robert Gibbs put it today, is kind of like a seesaw. A president says one thing, the Republicans jump up. He says something else, the Democrats jump up. It really becomes like, I don't know a high school, if not a grade school game. Mixing it up and getting people mixed together will send a message we're all in this together. This is serious business. I like it.” So what are the chances of this actually happening? CNN’s Joe Johns explains, it’s up to individual lawmakers where they want to sit. JOE JOHNS: “It looks like the only rule here is just do it. Congressional Research Service, which is about as nonpartisan as it gets, did a little paper on the state of the union in 2006. Quoting, it said, ‘Aside from reserved places for leadership, seat notice chamber are not assigned to particular members.’ End of story.” End of story? Looks like this is more like just the beginning. News outlets are scrambling to lock lawmakers down on whether they’ll get on board with the idea. And while White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says it’s an “interesting idea,” ABC News says, the prospects aren’t so good. “...asked if House Republican leadership was giving any serious consideration to the idea, an aide replied bluntly, ‘Nope.’” President Obama will deliver the State of the Union speech on January 25th.

BY ALLIE SPILLYARDS You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy Osama bin Laden’s death has earned some political capital for President Obama- and now, it looks like he’s going to spend a little bit of it on immigration reform. “President Obama heads to El Paso Texas to speak out on what the White House calls the nation’s ‘broken immigration system.’ The announcement of Obama’s speech comes as Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano called for an end to the state-by-state battles. She says immigration reform won’t be successful until the feds step in. According to Newsroom America... “In a speech at the Atlanta Press Club, Napolitano dodged a question about legislation in Georgia that matches Arizona's recent immigration reform law, instead saying Washington should write such laws.” President Obama has acknowledged he’ll need bipartisan support for any new immigration laws, especially after Democrats lost the House in last November’s elections. But according to a blogger for TIME, cooperation doesn’t look likely. “Leading Republican lawmakers strongly object to the President's proposal to put people who are in the U.S. illegally on a citizenship track. Conservatives decry that as rewarding lawbreakers – and since the raid on Bin Laden's Pakistan compound this week has given Obama new warrior clout, the GOP may well decide immigration is a useful issue for chopping his security cachet down again before the 2012 election.” A writer for The Daily Caller says the timing of President Obama’s renewed interest in immigration reform isn’t a coincidence. “Hispanics are a key element in his reelection campaign, partly because his support among working-class whites and swing-voters have crashed after two years of lousy economic conditions. But Hispanics’ turnout is low, and their lopsided support for him has tumbled from 68 percent to 54 percent over the last few years.” A writer for the Huffington Post adds- Obama hasn’t always had the Hispanic community’s support. “Obama has had a rocky relationship with Latinos since taking office. The biggest blow was his failure to deliver on a campaign promise to pass comprehensive immigration reform during his first year in office. Latinos were also angry when Obama didn’t mention immigration reform once in his 2010 State of the Union address.” The President’s speech on immigration reform will be in El Paso on Tuesday.
