Washington, D.C. – Senate Republicans have been working diligently for months to get another bipartisan relief package passed and signed into law. Millions of Tennesseans and small businesses still need help, and I will continue to fight for another round of targeted relief. My motto? People over politics!

Expanding Rural Broadband
Internet access has become more important than ever before with the explosion of online learning, remote work, and telehealth services. My bipartisan legislation, the Internet Exchange (IX) Act, is one step closer to becoming law, and is a lynchpin to my rural health agenda.
This bill will help bring high speed internet into the homes and businesses of millions of Tennesseans now living life online. In addition, Verizon announced this week that 5G Ultra Wideband service will be made available in Nashville. This is a great development for Middle Tennessee and marks one more step toward winning the race to 5G!
Veteran Caregiver Heroes
November is Caregiver Appreciation Month! I would like to recognize and express gratitude for the 5.5 million Americans who serve as veteran caregivers. This week, my TEAM Act for veteran caregivers passed the Senate unanimously, which means we are one step closer to properly ensuring their recognition in veterans’ electronic health records, and addressing notification and discharge issues within the VA Caregiver Program.
I discussed my efforts to hold Big Tech Accountable on Varney & Co.
