Extending support for aviation jobs in the next COVID relief bill is critical. We need people working in aviation, not standing in unemployment lines. Pilots and flight attendants are already on the front lines delivering important air service. We should continue to support them.

Unfortunately, the report released today makes it crystal clear Neil Jacobs is not that leader, and he failed to protect scientists from political influence. Therefore, I oppose Neil Jacobs’ nomination to be the Administrator of NOAA, and I urge my colleagues to join me. (2/2)

It appears that received an Inspector General report of an investigation into Hurricane Dorian information mismanagement on June 26, but has blocked its release. I expect that full, unredacted report to be made public immediately in the interest of full transparency.
