Marsha Blackburn Report: Celebrating Tennessee’s Birthday

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Happy 225th birthday to the best state in America! The Volunteer spirit is alive and well, and it has never been a better time to celebrate all our state has accomplished. It is an honor to represent Tennessee in the U.S. Senate.

Addressing The I-40 Bridge Crisis

The I-40 bridge closure doesn’t just affect Memphis and the Mid-South region; it affects the whole country. I-40 is a coast-to-coast federal interstate highway crossing our nation from North Carolina to California. This week I headed to Memphis and spoke with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and local industry leaders hosted by FedEx about the situation on the I-40 bridge and the importance of targeted, practical infrastructure plans.

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – On June 8th, 2021 from 10:00am to 4:00pm, the Nashville Zoo will open the HCA Healthcare Veterinary Center lobby so guests can see and learn about the Zoo’s newest conservation program to save coral reefs. The one-day event celebrates World Ocean Day and will include a view of the Zoo’s coral ark, a pledge wall for guests, and experts on hand to answer questions.

“Living so far away from the coast, many people are not aware that Florida’s coral reef tract is in real trouble,” said David Oehler, Nashville Zoo Vice President. “Our Zoo, along with other zoos and aquariums across the country are working collectively as a protective ark for thousands of reef-building corals in hopes that one day, they can be placed back into Florida’s reef tract.”

AAA says 100 Deadliest Days for Teen Drivers Have Begun

 

AAANashville, TN – Memorial Day weekend marked the unofficial start of summer and unfortunately a dangerous time of year for young drivers. Nationwide, more than 30 percent of deaths involving teen drivers occur during what’s called the “100 Deadliest Days” – a period that runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. 

“Now that the CDC has lifted many pandemic restrictions, young adults are eager to reconnect with friends, which means young inexperienced drivers will spend more time on the roads,” said Megan Cooper, spokeswoman for AAA – The Auto Club Group. “This increases the chances that they’re involved in a crash, and for every mile driven, new teen drivers (ages 16-17 years old) are three times more likely to be involved in a deadly crash compared to adults.”

An average of seven people are killed per day in teen driver-related crashes from Memorial Day to Labor Day. (AAA)

NASA to study Venus with Two New Missions

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA has selected two new missions to Venus, Earth’s nearest planetary neighbor.

Part of NASA’s Discovery Program, the missions aim to understand how Venus became an inferno-like world when it has so many other characteristics similar to ours – and may have been the first habitable world in the solar system, complete with an ocean and Earth-like climate.

These investigations are the final selections from four mission concepts NASA picked in February 2020 as part of the agency’s Discovery 2019 competition.
