Marsha Blackburn Report: Strengthening Tennessee Manufacturing

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Tennessee manufacturers rely on semiconductors to support local and global supply chains. The Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee recently advanced my legislation with Senator Peters to encourage local economic development, identify resource gaps, and address challenges Tennessee businesses face as they recover.

Strengthening Tennessee Manufacturing

The supply chain crisis resulting from our dependence on communist China has underscored the importance of strengthening American manufacturing.

That’s why I introduced the Strengthening Support for American Manufacturing Act to streamline programs run by the Department of Commerce, eliminate government waste, and benefit the manufacturing community-based in Tennessee.


Opposing The Joe Biden Administration’s Vaccine Mandates

The Joe Biden administration’s vaccine mandates will force employers to fire essential workers over their vaccination status.

I joined my Senate colleagues in an amicus brief to the Supreme Court advocating against these mandates–specifically the one that would require private employers with over 100 employees to mandate either the COVID-19 Coronavirus vaccine or weekly testing.

Pushing For Storm Recovery Resources

In December, deadly storms swept across West and Middle Tennessee. Heavy rain, winds, and tornadoes resulted in a heartbreaking loss of lives and livelihoods. I led the entire Tennessee delegation in urging President Biden to swiftly approve Governor Bill Lee’s request for a Major Disaster Declaration and rush resources to the Volunteer State. 

If you or someone you know was impacted by the storms, the Small Business Administration is granting private nonprofit organizations Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs). Apply here before the February 8th deadline. 

Marsha’s Roundup

Americans have overwhelmingly rejected socialism, but President Joe Biden just won’t give up on his radical agenda. 


Tennesseans are pro-life! This week, Kristan Hawkins joined me on Unmuted with Marsha to give a behind-the-scenes look at the big court cases that are so critical to protecting the sanctity of life.
