U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – September 11th, 2001 was a tragic day for the United States. Please join me in remembering the innocent civilians, service members, first responders and their families who have suffered every day.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Closing The Digital Divide

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Over the past several months, our lives have taken a remarkably virtual turn.

A high-speed internet connection is now a necessity: offices have shifted to working from home, health care is delivered over video chat, and storefronts have been replaced by virtual marketplaces.

But the reality is millions of rural Americans lack a reliable broadband connection, putting them at an economic disadvantage.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Reopening Our Country

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Tennesseans want us to incentivize folks to safely return to work. I’ve also been hearing from business owners concerned that people are not returning to work. This is why I joined Senator Rob Portman’s (R-Ohio) Healthy Workplaces Tax Credit Act to help relieve business owners of some of the financial burden associated with creating a safe work environment.

As I write this, billions of dollars from previous coronavirus relief packages sit unspent. We must ensure that any additional coronavirus relief is targeted, and has both the guardrails and flexibility necessary to prevent waste, fraud and abuse.
