I was pleased to join @GovPhilScott, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT), and Sen. Bernard (Bernie) Sanders (ID-VT) to highlight the importance of LIHEAP, which helps low-income families with energy costs. I continue to fight for increased LIHEAP funding in Congress to help keep Vermonters safe through the harsh winter months.
@tim_cook @siliconslopes @Ancestry @CanvasLMS Mike Lee: Utah has been an early pioneer in becoming a regulatory sandbox. Innovators can see where we are going better than regulators. New ideas are all too often restricted by burdensome regulatory environments. Utah is leading the way in giving new ideas regulatory freedom.
@tim_cook @siliconslopes @Ancestry @CanvasLMS Mike Lee: There’s always something you can find that interests you. A few weeks ago on a whim, I wanted to learn Morse code, it turns out there’s an app for that. We live in a time and age when you can do what interests you. If you want to learn or do something, you can.
@tim_cook @siliconslopes @Ancestry @CanvasLMS Mike Lee: We fought a revolution in part because of excessive intrusion into our privacy. Today, our personal details aren’t just in papers. They’re all over in our data. That’s why I worked with Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT) to pass the USA Freedom Act which ended mass phone record collection.
@tim_cook @siliconslopes @Ancestry @CanvasLMS Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT) Tim Cook: We feel a significant responsibility for our customers to make sure they are taken care of with privacy. That’s why we believe in encryption. We don’t have the tools to unlock your phone. The only person with a key to your phone is you.
Quoting Senate Democrats from
The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy.
But recent Supreme Court decisions have eroded the Voting Rights Act’s crucial protections.
Senate Democrats are introducing the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to restore and update the VRA.
It's official!! 🙌🏾 The Senate has moved forward with introduction of S4, the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act!
Thank you Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT) & Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-IL) for introducing the Senate version of my bill today. Time to get it on @POTUS' desk! #RestoreTheVote #GoodTrouble
Quoting Senate Judiciary Committee from
NEWS: Chair Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-IL) and @SenateApprops Chair Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT) are calling on the Administration to put an end to the policy of conducting war-based strikes outside areas where the United States is engaged in armed conflict, saying it's time for our government "to do better."
As the administration rightfully seeks to end the endless wars of the last two decades and restore American leadership on human rights, it should take immediate steps to end lethal force outside of armed conflict. Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT) and I are calling on POTUS to make this a priority.
The Constitution is clear—only Congress has the power to declare war. It’s time we take that responsibility more seriously.
To that end, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-VT), Sen. Jon Ossoff (D-GA), & I are introducing legislation to ensure no AUMFs last longer than 10 years after they are initially enacted.
