Washington, D.C. – The Volunteer State is no stranger to extreme flooding and tornados, but last month’s severe weather was historic in its devastation of roads, homes, and businesses.
In response, I led the Tennessee delegation in a letter to the White House supporting Tennessee Governor Bill Lee’s request for a Major Disaster Declaration to address the deadly storms that occurred between March 25th and April 3rd, 2021.
I urged President Joe Biden to approve Governor Lee’s declaration and swiftly provide Tennessee with the federal resources necessary to rebuild.
Washington, D.C. – Today, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. declared that a major disaster exists in the State of Tennessee and ordered Federal assistance to supplement state and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding from March 25th to April 3rd, 2021.
The President’s action makes Federal funding available to affected individuals in the counties of Davidson County, Williamson County, and Wilson County.
Washington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Good afternoon. It’s exactly 12:00. I want to — I want to put today’s jobs report in perspective. And — look, when we came to office, we knew we were facing a once-in-a-century pandemic and a once-in-a-generation economic crisis. And we knew this wouldn’t be a sprint; it would be a marathon.
Quite frankly, we are moving more rapidly than I thought we would. This morning, we learned that our economy created 266,000 jobs in April. It hadn’t been adjusted again yet, but that’s what it says: 266.
Washington, D.C. – The American Families Plan is an investment in Tennessee’s children and families – because when American families do well, our nation thrives.
The American Families Plan is a once-in-a-generation investment in the foundations of middle-class prosperity: education, health care, and child care.

Washington, D.C. – It’s easy to put stories of the crisis facing our nation at a distance when you live and work more than a thousand miles north of the United States-Mexico border. But as the effects of mass illegal immigration spread northward, Tennesseans are facing a stark new reality: when our border isn’t secure, every town becomes a border town and every state a border state.
Perhaps no one understands that better than Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David Rausch, who describes the crisis as “out of control.”
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) led the Tennessee delegation in a letter to the White House supporting Governor Bill Lee’s request for a Major Disaster Declaration to address the deadly storms that occurred from March 25th through April 3rd, 2021.
“The Volunteer State is no stranger to extreme flooding and tornados, but last month’s severe weather was historic in its devastation of roads, homes, and businesses,” said Senator Blackburn.
Washington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Good afternoon. Today, two months until July 4th, I’m here to report that we’re — we’re in our vaccination program — where we are and what comes next in an effort to get this country back closer to normal.
And first: Where are we? Well, as everyone knows, I promised that we’d administer 100 million shots in my first 100 days. After we met that goal, we doubled it to a — a historic 200 million shots. By the time we reached 100 days last week, we had shattered that mark with over 220 million shots in arms.
Washington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: My name is Joe Biden. I’m Jill’s husband. (Laughter.) And just like — just like the lovely lady in blue over here is a professor at a community college, my wife also works for your husband. (Laughter.) I — and thank you for the warm welcome today at the airport. Appreciate it very, very much.
And Tim Kaine — one of the great senators and great, great friend.
Washington, D.C. – President Joe Biden and D.C. politicians want to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars to incentivize dependency on the federal government. To accomplish this, they will take even more money out of Tennesseans’ hard-earned paychecks.
The so-called ‘American Families Plan’ that Joe Biden’s team created for him will replace community with collectivism. Each program is just one more avenue for the government to gain a foothold into our homes. I will not stand by while Joe Biden and Kamala Harris attempt to gain control over Tennessee families.
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) released the following statement and video on President Joe Biden’s joint address to Congress.
“President Joe Biden and Washington Democrats want to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars to incentivize dependency on the federal government. To accomplish this, they will take away more money from Tennesseans’ hard-earned paychecks,” said Senator Blackburn.
