We thank our brave service members, including those at Fort Campbell, for protecting our great nation.
Our founding fathers laid out a bicameral process to deal with the gravest and most significant check available to our legislative body — impeachment. The House has no authority under the Constitution to withhold the articles of impeachment from the Senate.

You cannot have 21st century education, business or health care without 21st century internet access. While 5G implementation is vital to our continued growth and prosperity, almost one quarter of rural Tennessee communities lack the infrastructure needed to connect homes and businesses to high speed internet.

Since being elected to the Senate just over one year ago, I’ve made it a priority to meet with Tennesseans in every county across our state.

I look forward to hearing more of what is on Tennesseans’ minds.
Each and every day our brave law enforcement officers put their lives on the line to protect us. Thank you to our men and women in blue!
