Marsha Blackburn Report: Supporting Military Families

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The United States Armed Forces are made up of not only brave men and women in uniform, but also the families at home who support them during their service. For spouses frequently moving across state lines, keeping up with state-level professional licensing regulations can be a near-impossible task.

That’s why I introduced the Military Spouse Licensing Relief Act, which is an essential piece of bipartisan legislation to remove bureaucratic red tape and support our nation’s heroes.

Marsha Blackburn: The Fight for Election Integrity

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
U.S. Senator

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – If you liked the chaos of the pandemic election, you’re going to love the left’s new effort to complicate voting in America. Despite its innocuous name, the For the People Act, known in the Senate as “S.1,” is a harbinger of anything but productive election reform.

It is a federal takeover of the electoral process. Rather than addressing Americans’ genuine concerns about never-ending vote counts, electioneering, and voter fraud, S.1 would upend the traditional voting system and turn every Election Day into election month, opening the door to uncertainty, taxpayer-funded campaigns, and speech restrictions.

Oversight of the FBI: The January 6th Insurrection, Domestic Terrorism, Other Threats

 

Federal Bureau of Investigation - FBIWashington, D.C. – Good morning, Chairman Durbin, Ranking Member Grassley, and members of the committee. I am honored to be here, representing the men and women of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Our people—nearly 37,000 of them—are the heart of the Bureau. I am proud of their service and their commitment to our mission. Every day, they tackle their jobs with perseverance, professionalism, and integrity—sometimes at the greatest of costs.

Just last month, two of our agents made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Special Agents Dan Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger left home to carry out the mission they signed up for—to keep the American people safe.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Protecting the Symbols of Our Nation

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Statues and other symbols of our history serve as a reminder of how far we have come as a nation. As Americans, we have a responsibility to talk about our successes, our mistakes, and what we want our future to look like.

The First Amendment protects our right to peacefully protest, and to petition the government for change.

The violent acts committed by the professional agitators encouraging mob rule and anarchy, however, are crimes.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) is leading over 40 members of Congress in an amicus brief in support of Barronelle Stutzman, the owner of Arlene’s Flowers in Richland, Washington. The brief argues the state court’s decision in Arlene’s Flowers v. Washington conflicts with First Amendment precedent protecting artistic works and prohibiting the government from compelling expressive conduct.

“Current events such as the protests in Hong Kong and the ongoing conflict in Syria remind us daily that we are fortunate to live in a country devoted to protecting individual liberties,” said Senator Blackburn.
