Without the input & guidance of survivors, we wouldn’t have the Empowering Olympic, Paralympic, & Amateur Athletes Act. It is our duty to meet the courage they displayed in coming forward w/meaningful action. Thank you for your tremendous courage & unwavering demand for change.

I look forward to continuing to work with Senator as well as the House & White House to ensure these critical reforms cross the finish line—for the survivors & all of our nation’s future athletes.

There must be a seismic, systemic shift in the culture of abuse & institutional failures to protect athletes. By passing the Empowering Olympic, Paralympic, & Amateur Athletes Act the Senate takes a critical step towards greater transparency & accountability.

At Saturday’s Farmers to Families Food Box Food Distribution event at Wade’s Dairy, it was truly wonderful to see everyone working together to help meet CT’s hunger needs.

Today, we . 23 people were killed & 22 wounded one year ago in a horrendous, hate-fueled attack. I will never stop working to stamp out xenophobia & stop gun violence.

This sham sidesteps Congress to save face by sacrificing our national security. General Tata is so deeply, dangerously unqualified that our SASC Committee pulled down his hearing. This bigoted Trump sycophant is unfit for top DOD policy-making.

Person to Person is a lifesaver. It enables people to put food on the table—filling a gap & helping those in need. As I head back to DC, I'll demand my colleagues, “listen to your constituents,” & show some basic humanity by providing urgent aid.

Nearly half a century after Roe v. Wade was decided, we are still fighting for the basic right to access abortion care. It’s time for Congress to protect this fundamental right by passing the Women’s Health Protection Act.

DC Appeals court shows the rule of law still lives. Despite Barr’s attempt to corrupt it, justice may yet be done.

Spying on Americans—by our own government. So deeply repugnant the founders wrote a specific Constitutional amendment (the 4th) to bar it. The revulsion to this apparent law breaking should be bipartisan. So should action. Immediate investigation is needed.

Waiting for hefty bills, Americans face continued uncertainty. Congress can help alleviate this burden by passing my bill, the Repatriation Reimbursement Act—requiring airlines & the State Department to fully reimburse/waive these COVID-19 travel costs.

At a time when families face unprecedented hardship—struggling to put food on the table, pay rent & mortgages, clothe their children, & meet other basic necessities, these rate increases must be completely & permanently rescinded & money rebated to consumers.

These astronomic rate hikes seem all the more abhorrent & appalling after seeing Eversource’s gargantuan earnings increase. I will continue fighting for permanent relief from federal regulators to cut the transmission charges & pay back consumers.

Historic day for CT as the Governor signs police accountability legislation—a model for the nation & impetus for federal action. We must pass the Justice in Policing Act now—heeding cries for racial equity across CT & America.

Microsoft buying TikTok’s U.S. operations may seem to reduce the threat. It’s no substitute for a cogent, coherent strategy to keep us safe. This Administration has no such strategy; it owes us one.

This potential Microsoft takeover should not distract us from the need to crack down on insidious spying & surveillance by TikTok, Zoom, & other Chinese companies. I’ve asked that the DOJ investigate & take action against them to protect our national security & consumer privacy.
