California is in the middle of one of the worst, most destructive wildfire years in history. We’re calling on Senate leadership to accept California’s request for at least $7.7 billion in disaster relief funding in upcoming legislation.

The Senate again voted unanimously to pass our bill to end the use of drift gillnets and help the fishing industry transition to more sustainable practices. These nets indiscriminately kill whales, dolphins and turtles and have no place in our waters.

California’s diversity is core to our state’s identity. As we mark #HispanicHeritageMonth , I’m proud to recognize and celebrate all the contributions the Latino community has made in shaping California into the great state it is today.

Welcome to Twitter @KarenJHanrahan ! I’m grateful for all you’ve done for San Francisco at GLIDE.

Over the years, I’ve met with these brave athletes on a number of occasions. Today's hearing was heart-wrenching and it’s more clear than ever that the abuse and systemic failures that happened to these young women must never happen again.

G'mar chatima tova to all observing Yom Kippur. Wishing you an easy fast and peaceful holiday.

I’m glad the House Ways and Means Committee added several of my provisions to the reconciliation package. They include critical investments in many areas, from battling climate change to COVID-19 recovery to rebuilding the IRS so it can enforce tax laws.

Federal assistance is available for Californians affected by wildfire. If you live in Lassen, Nevada, Placer or Plumas counties, you’re eligible to apply for FEMA aid. Aid for more counties will become available soon, but those eligible now can apply here:

Most families with children qualify for #ChildTaxCredit  payments, and three more are scheduled for this year. If you haven’t received a check yet, visit:

UPDATE: Republicans rejected our motion to adjourn until Monday so senators could read the bill they just introduced. RT If you think senators should have time to read a bill that affects every single American.

BREAKING: Brett Kavanaugh was asked in 2004 about whether he was involved in the nomination of Bill Pryor. He said “I was not involved in handling his nomination" Newly released emails show that's not true. Asked about how Pryor's interview went, he replied "CALL ME."

When Merrick Garland was nominated in 2016 to fill Justice Scalia’s seat, we were 237 days away from an election. Now we’re just 42 days away from an election, yet Leader McConnell wants to jam a nominee through. That’s a dangerous double standard that can’t be allowed to stand.

The LA Times misunderstood what I said today. Before the trial I said I'd keep an open mind. Now that both sides made their cases, it’s clear the president’s actions were wrong. He withheld vital foreign assistance for personal political gain. That can’t be allowed to stand.

During my Senate career I’ve held all assets in a blind trust of which I have no control. Reports that I sold any assets are incorrect, as are reports that I was at a January 24 briefing on coronavirus, which I was unable to attend.

Chairman Graham’s announcement that he will hold Judge Barrett’s first committee markup on Thursday morning, before we’ve even finished her hearing, is unprecedented in my time on the committee.
