COVID-19 has thrown into sharp relief the urgent need to increase access to quality, affordable long-term care at home for seniors and Americans with disabilities. The #BetterJobsBetterCare  Act is must-pass legislation to make that a reality.

I’m pushing @fema  on how it plans to speed up the distribution of critical disaster resources for Oregonians affected by catastrophic wildfires. With multiple, large fires already burning across the state, I won’t stop fighting to get Oregonians the help they need.

When it comes to cannabis, the federal government is still living in the era of Reefer Madness. It's past time to end these outdated, racist laws. @SenBookerO @SenSchumerffice and I are all in to get it done.

Proud to have worked to pass the American Rescue Plan, which includes this essential pension protection for hard-working union members who have earned this benefit promised by their employers:

Pets shouldn’t be forgotten when it comes to wildfire preparedness. Please read up on how to protect your beloved four-legged family members during wildfire season. Get educated, make a plan, stay safe.

Tackling the climate crisis and creating good-paying jobs are urgent goals our country can and must accomplish. America is ready for a Civilian Climate Corps.

The climate crisis is here. We’re living it. And without immediate, meaningful action, it will get so much worse than we ever could have imagined.

Oregonians are all too familiar with the debilitating smoke that accompanies severe wildfires. This week @SenJeffMerkley  and I introduced a package of bills to ensure communities in Oregon and the West get the federal resources they need to mitigate smoke and keep folks safe.

Good forest management saves lives, homes, and livelihoods. I’m continuing to push for robust federal funding of proven methods like prescribed burns that make these fires less dangerous and challenging to fight.


I can’t believe I have to keep saying this but Donald Trump has been president for four years and if he actually wanted to lower your drug prices he would have done it already.

Your daily reminder that Senate Republicans haven’t lifted a finger for three months to help families buy food during a pandemic but are preparing to confirm a Supreme Court nominee in less than two weeks.

I just voted no on the partisan #COVID19  bill. Here's why: while nurses are being forced to make their own masks and gowns, McConnell and Trump are busy creating a taxpayer-funded slush fund for their buddies. I will stay here as long it takes to get this done the right way.

NEW: I've been investigating Trump's interference in the investigation into Turkish-owned Halkbank, and my suspicions were just confirmed. Attorney General Barr — at Trump’s request — was trying to orchestrate a sweetheart deal to please President Erdogan.

If you woke up today angry, confused or frustrated about the direction our country is heading, I have one word for you: vote.

NEWS: For more than a year my @SenateFinance  staff has been investigating the NRA’s relationship with foreign agent Maria Butina and Russian government official Alexander Torshin and their role in the Kremlin’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 election. Here’s what they found.

NEWS: I just received a shocking declassified FBI memo confirming that the Saudi government has been helping fugitives flee the U.S. justice system after being accused or convicted of violent crimes.
