I hope President Biden reconsiders his decision to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline.
Otherwise, it will have negative consequences for folks across the nation. It'll eliminate thousands of good union #jobs, raise prices for working families & undermine America’s energy security.
Last year we managed to get a number of crucial AI bills signed into law. The National AI Research Resource Task Force Act, for instance, lays the groundwork for a national cloud computer which will democratize access to supercomputing power for researchers across America.
The Drug-Free Communities Act I authored 24 yrs ago supports a proven, community-oriented drug prevention program.
Our new bill would provide the program w the flexibility it needs to meet the challenges posed by COVID so we can continue fighting youth substance abuse.
Earlier this week, @ToledoPolice Officer Brandon Stalker was shot and killed in the line of duty.
Officer Stalker - who was only 24 years old - leaves behind a fiancée and two young children. Jane and I offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends & brothers in blue.
Keeping drugs out of the hands of our kids is a priority for all of us parents. In some ways, the pandemic has made that task more challenging.
That's why I've intro'd a bill to empower the "Drug-Free Communities program" with the flexibility it needs to combat youth drug use.
A few days after the riot, we were devastated by the passing of Capitol Police Officer Howard Liebengood.
Howie was a familiar face here in the Senate & someone I used to see almost every day.
He was a friend to so many of us and we will miss him dearly.
