The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Good afternoon. It’s a good day today. You know, when we took office 45 days ago, I promised the American people that help was on the way. Today, I can say we’ve taken one more giant step forward in delivering on that promise that help is on the way.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn introduced an amendment to protect state, local, and tribal governments from unfunded federal mandates.

“State and local governments are struggling enough as the nation grapples with this deadly pandemic,” said Senator Blackburn. “Yet radical left Senators like Bernie Sanders are pushing to force unfunded federal mandates on state, local, and tribal governments by a simple majority vote in the Senate. I will fight tooth and nail against these policies and the dark of night changes to federal law that may allow the federal government to burden Tennessee with unfunded mandates.”
