I will continue to help the workers at BIW as I always have — by working to assist them in getting contracts that keep our shipbuilders employed, ensuring an adequate shipbuilding budget, and pursuing the goal of a 355-ship Navy.

This is a positive development for the highly skilled workers at BIW who build the best ships in the world & are an essential asset to the Navy. With the help of the federal mediator, I’m glad both sides were able to work together to resolve differences.

COVID-19 has greatly affected America’s bus, motorcoach, & passenger ferry industries. & I introduced a bill to provide $10 billion in emergency grants to help keep these critical links in our transportation system strong. The Senate should pass this bill immediately

Maine’s lobstermen & women have been careful stewards of our natural resources for generations. This is an extremely unfair decision at an already challenging time for Maine's lobster industry that is facing reduced sales & exports due to COVID-19.

This is what they’re doing already; it's only going to get worse for our towns & cities as revenues continue to plummet. Congress must act to provide direct assistance to every community. This is a problem we can solve. Let’s enact the SMART Act in the next COVID-19 package.

Across Maine, I have heard from mayors & town managers about the tough decisions they face as they work to balance their budgets. Auburn has frozen six vacant positions. Madawaska has scrapped a $3 million paving project & has left three positions vacant.
