Marsha Blackburn Report: Remembering September 11th, 2001

 

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.

May God hold them near.

President Donald Trump, Historically Black Colleges & Universities, Progress

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “As both of us can attest, historically Black colleges and universities (HBCU) provide a vital path for young African-Americans to reach the true heights of their potential,” Ken Blackwell and Herman Cain write in Townhall.
 
“The scale and duration of President Donald Trump’s commitment to HBCUs is a story often ignored in the popular press, but it fits neatly within the framework of his governing philosophy. This administration has the interests of all citizens at heart and is always trying to fund and support solutions that truly empower black Americans.”

Marsha Blackburn Report: Combating the Coronavirus

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The President’s early decision to increase screening at airports and borders and ban non-U.S. citizens from China from entering the country has helped prevent the coronavirus from spreading. This week, the President appointed Vice President Mike Pence to lead our response effort to the outbreak. My office has been in touch with the Tennessee Department of Health, which will be providing regular updates for Tennesseans. 

Recent reforms enacted by Congress, which improved federal, state, and local preparedness and response programs, have helped the United States achieve top-ranked status as the country best prepared to deal with a potential pandemic.

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – This month marks one year since President Donald Trump launched the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, also known as W-GDP. With major support from Ivanka Trump, W-GDP addresses the lack of economic freedom that women face globally.

Lamar Alexander says Congress Would Save Lives of Thousands of Tennesseans by Controlling All Forms of Fentanyl

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) cosponsored bipartisan legislation that would designate all types of fentanyl as Schedule 1 narcotics.

“Last year, more Tennesseans died from opioid overdoses than were killed in car crashes. Fentanyl – a synthetic opioid that can be 50 times stronger than heroin – was the leading cause of these opioid related deaths.” Alexander said. “The opioid crisis is ravaging Tennessee communities, and permanently designating all forms of fentanyl as controlled substances, which the bill I cosponsored does, will save thousands of lives.”

Marsha Blackburn Report: Holding Turkey Accountable For Its Atrocities

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Protecting our Kurdish partners is a priority. Turkey must be held accountable for its destabilization of northern Syria, and ISIS must not be allowed to resurge. 

While I am encouraged that the lines of communication are open, this five-day pause in hostilities does not make up for the lives lost, families displaced, and homes destroyed by the Turkish incursion. Not only are we abandoning our Kurdish partners, but Putin is exploiting our withdrawal. We must not cede power to Moscow. 

Senator Marsha Blackburn.
