The Biden Administration cannot idly stand by as China advances its own trade priorities in the region, and the United States must lead by forging ambitious new trade deals with our allies.

This was also an opportunity to have conversations about sanctions on Russia and Iran as well as additional efforts to combat national security threats from foreign investment, illicit finance and other economic issues.

@TradeGov  plays a critical role in overseeing activities concerning international trade policy, including trade promotion, enforcement, investment & global competitiveness. Watch my remarks on the two @CommerceGov  nominees.

The National Guard’s FireGuard program is a valuable asset fighting wildfires across the West. @SenatorBennet , @SenFeinstein  & I introduced an amendment to the FY23 NDAA to authorize the National Guard's Fireguard Program to help detect/monitor wildfires.

Over the course of 9 days, we have reviewed testimony from 13 witnesses sworn under oath in the House hearings; over 28,000 pages of evidence; 192 videos; answers to the 180 questions asked by senators; & numerous additional witnesses & documentary evidence for the Senate record.

The @EPA  and the @USACEHQ  announced the final rule for the Navigable Waters Protection Rule. The rule provides clarity to the federal-state partnership for the definition of #WOTUS  under the Clean Water Act. Thank you @POTUS  for decisive action on #WOTUS

Over the past week, blood centers throughout the country have experienced a significant drop in donations due to #COVID19 . If you're healthy, your blood donation is needed. Today, a few of my staff gave blood. Thank you to all the nurses and volunteers. We're all in this together
