I’m very sorry to learn from that he has started to undergo treatment for residual prostate cancer. His attitude is upbeat and the prognosis is excellent. Knowing Angus, this won’t slow him down a bit! I look forward to our continued work together.

The signing of this bill I authored with is a good first step in providing relief for federal workers. While guaranteeing back pay will help give some peace of mind, a compromise must be reached to bring this shutdown to an end.

I’ll vote to disapprove Treasury’s easing of sanctions on Russian businesses involving oligarch & Putin ally Oleg Deripaska. He still would maintain significant control given his ties to Putin. Easing the sanctions sends the wrong message to Russia & to Deripaska.

I talked to a waitress in Bangor this morning whose husband works for TSA. They literally had to get a loan to pay their mortgage for this month. That's just wrong. I continue to believe that a compromise is possible because this is a problem that we have to solve.

The Senate unanimously passed a bill & I authored that ensures federal workers affected by the partial government shutdown will receive retroactive pay. While this will help provide some peace of mind, we must bring this impasse to an end.

Having visited more than 200 schools in ME, I know a great school is like a winning team where everyone does their best. Dr. Levesque Elementary in Frenchville should be proud to be named a Blue Ribbon School– 1 of 3 in ME this year & among only 349 nationwide to win this honor.

The need to end the partial government shutdown is urgent. Lives are being affected by this impasse. Congress should reopen much of the government immediately while negotiations continue.

It is not a sign of weakness to try to figure out a middle ground. It is a sign of strength. Both sides need to indicate a willingness to listen & to compromise.

Shutdowns represent a failure to govern & harm those who interact with the closed agencies as well as federal employees & their families. As we work to end this shutdown, & I introduced a bill to ensure these civil servants are paid.

Good news for the Coast Guard! White House staff called to tell me CG members will receive their paychecks as did other federal employees. I continue to work to end the shutdown, but this will provide immediate relief to CG members & their families.

Military members are paid under a different schedule than civilian employees. The most recent pay period for the military started on Dec. 16 and runs through Dec. 31.

Though the partial shutdown largely doesn’t impact the Defense Department and members of the military in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines, the same isn’t true for the U.S. Coast Guard, a Department of Homeland Security subcomponent that lacks full-year 2019 appropriations.

Most federal employees will receive their scheduled paychecks today, but that is not the case for 42,000 Coast Guard members, who will not be paid for pre-shutdown work because they are under a different pay system. This is not fair. I called the WH to urge an immediate fix.
