Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – August 4th, 2019

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Washington’s spending habit is counterproductive. Common sense tells us, don’t treat taxpayer dollars like Monopoly money, and that’s why on Thursday, I voted against bloated, inefficient and wasteful federal spending.

Tennesseans rightly worry that the closure of rural hospitals will leave them without access to health care. My Rural Health Agenda comes directly at the request of small town mayors and community leaders, and fills gaps left by hospital closures. It ensures quality care is accessible closer to home for rural Tennesseans by targeting areas that need improvement.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Adventure Of A Lifetime

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I met Rob Leunberger during a recent memorial run he organized for a friend who tragically lost his life on the back of his motorcycle.  You can read that story here.

As I joined the group for the day’s ride, I was on the outside looking in.  I didn’t know most of  those who had gathered to honor their friend, on this scorching hot summer day. 

At the end of the day though, I had witnessed an amazing friendship among men and women, brought together by a motorcycle, with a love for one another that was special.  They would do ANYTHING for each other!

Marsha Blackburn says Your Data is the Bedrock of Tech Companies’ Revenue

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – On Thursday, July 18th, 2019, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) spoke on the Senate floor about the bipartisan BROWSER Act and the dangers of FaceApp ahead of the first Senate Judiciary Tech Task Force meeting she is leading this afternoon.

“A quick scroll through an average Instagram feed this morning revealed post after post of artificially-aged faces—all thanks to FaceApp, who now owns those images, and can do whatever they like with them,” said Senator Blackburn. “Don’t mistake that recklessness for trust. Ask anyone who downloaded that app last night how they feel about it this afternoon.”

Blackburn Report: Senator Marsha Blackburn visits Border with Vice President Mike Pence

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – We continue to hear about the crisis at our southern border. As the situation becomes more and more dire, it is important that both sides of the aisle work together on solving this issue.

On Friday, the Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee saw firsthand the work being done to secure our border. We spoke with border patrol officers, toured the McAllen Border Patrol Station, and spoke with detained migrants. What the cartels are telling them in Central America, or any of the other 60 countries where individuals have arrived from, is not what happens when they arrive on U.S. soil.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Protecting Children From Sexual Predators

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C – On Monday, July 8th, 2019, I wrote to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel and urged him to protect our children from being exposed to sexual predators and explicit adult content. Disappearing pictures, a location-sharing feature and limited parental controls make the app a child predator’s dream.

I heard back from Snapchat and am glad to report they are receptive to my concerns. I look forward to meeting with them to discuss how we can protect our children.
