Marsha Blackburn Report: Scotus Nomination voted favorably out of Committee

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – On Thursday, October 22nd, 2200, my colleagues and I on the Judiciary Committee unanimously voted Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination out of Committee.

The nomination will now get a full Senate vote. Tennesseans want Judge Barrett confirmed, and I will work hard to make sure that happens! 

 

Big Tech

Next week Big Tech CEOs of Twitter, Facebook, and Google will be testifying before the Senate Commerce Committee. We will be looking at Section 230 and examining the reforms that are necessary to ensure a competitive and innovative marketplace. These companies are not the arbiters of truth, but they have been censoring information as if they are.

95 County Virtual Tour

Earlier this month, I concluded my 95 county virtual tour. I appreciated the opportunity to speak firsthand with county officials to learn how we can best work together to meet the needs of our state. I continue to be inspired by Tennesseans who contribute their talents and abilities to serve their communities during the pandemic. Our state is home to some of the most resilient people in the nation.

Marsha’s Roundup

I popped into Fox and Friends to discuss the upcoming hearing with Big Tech CEOs on Section 230 reform.

Keeping an innovative and competitive marketplace is a necessity. I spoke with Emily Chang on Bloomberg about how Google is abusing their market power.

On CNBC, I shared what Americans are looking for in the stimulus package and addressed other Big Tech-related concerns.

During the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs hearing this week, I spoke about the need to expand access to care, and my TEAM Veteran Caregivers Act that will secure benefits and support for veteran caregivers.
