The slight drop in demand – 47,000 b/d – amid the increase in stocks comes as many states report increases in COVID-19 Coronavirus cases, potentially causing Americans to reconsider outings.

Lamar Alexander: Making the case for preserving Andrew Jackson statue

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, Senate Democrats voted to block consideration of U.S. Senator Tim Scott, of South Carolina’s, police reform legislation. I voted to begin debate on Senator Scott’s proposal, which I co-sponsored, because it will make police officers more accountable, encourage departments to ban chokeholds and adopt best practices, provide better training to police officers, and make lynching a federal crime. 

Congress should have a serious debate and consider amendments on these important issues, and it is a shame that Senate Democrats won’t allow the Senate to even begin to consider this legislation.
