Hosting A Tele-Town Hall
Tennesseans enjoyed popping on a live Tele-Town Hall with us, and this week’s call was informative. Thousands of callers joined us for a full hour of questions and answers with a great discussion of the issues impacting our communities.
Calling For Proper Care
Our nation’s veterans have made tremendous sacrifices for our country, and in addition to our gratitude, veterans also deserve proper treatment. That’s why I called on the VA Secretary Denis McDonough to provide greater care for veterans exposed to toxic substances during their service. The VA, Department of Defense, and CDC can and should work together to care for the brave men and women who served.
Protecting American Patients
This week, I introduced legislation to ensure a more transparent process for prescription drug prices with the goal of lowering consumer costs and saving taxpayer dollars. This is an important piece of legislation that could relieve burdens on both patients and local pharmacies, and you can read more about it here.
Safeguarding Consumer Privacy
Safeguarding consumer privacy in the technology arena is paramount. I will use my new role as Ranking Member on the Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security to continue to hold big tech accountable as we reform online privacy regulations and protect consumers.
