Congratulations to Woolmarket, Brandon, East Hancock, & Della Davidson elementary schools for being recognized among America's best! These schools earned National Blue Ribbons by modeling excellence in teaching & learning for MS & the nation. Well done!

Troubled by @fema  decision to proceed with new flood risk rating system that will raise premiums on a majority of policyholders. Too many families & businesses will be inclined to forfeit flood insurance coverage. Joined letter to @FEMA_Pete_Deanne  urging delay of this program.

@SecMayorkas  keeps claiming our border is secure. Maybe the question for him and the @PresElectBiden  should be ‘For whom is the border secure? For those entering il #BorderCrisisegally ?'

The @USDA  report effectively invalidates @PresElectBiden  claim that most family farms/ranches would be held harmless by the Dem’s scramble to pay for their $3.5T spending spree. Really, this proposal would impose a tax burden on a broad swath of Ag operations across MS & the nation.

Pleased to cosponsor @SenBrianSchatz  Telehealth Awareness Week Resolution, which the Senate approved last night. We’re on in it in Mississippi where @UMMCTelehealth  is a National Center of Excellence in Telehealth. @UMMCnews 

On #GoldStarMothersDay  we recognize and honor all who have lost those dearest to them in service and defense of our nation. We #HonorThem  for their strength and courage in spite of their enormous sacrifice.

@realDonaldTrump  has exercised his right to put forth a nominee to fill a #SCOTUS  vacancy. In Judge Amy Coney Barrett, I believe the President has chosen a qualified conservative jurist who would bring an important perspective to the Court.

The Chinese communist government’s abuse of basic political & human rights of the people of Hong Kong is a travesty. Cosponsored a @marcorubio  resolution condemning the People’s Republic of China and the Chinese Communist Party and recommending U.S. govt responses. Read more:

My statement on today’s Joint Session of Congress.

Many people have worked tirelessly to get to where we are today with 2 vaccines nearing approval and others in the pipeline. @realDonaldTrump  and leaders of #OperationWarpSpeed  deserve credit for breaking down barriers to speed up the process, while still ensuring safety.

I voted to acquit former President Trump. Read my full statement below:

77 percent of voters think babies who survive failed abortions should receive medical treatment. Public policymakers should start thinking like them.

What we witnessed at the border was harrowing. @PresElectBiden  EOs 1) sc @ICEgovled  back ability to enforce laws 2) put 100 day moratorium on deportations 3) ended “Remain in Mexico” program 4) halted construction of border wall. After all that, what did they think was going to happen?

S.1 is a radical bill that would, among other things, nullify MS’s successful voter ID law. So, in a federal election, an individual could walk into a polling place, register & vote on the spot, without ever showing any proof of identity or residency.

Broke out my @msstate  cowbell on the #SenateFloor  today to formally congratulate @HailStateBB  on its historic @NCAACWS  win! #HailState 

Congrats, @OleMissFB , for reaching a 100% vaccination rate! Looking forward to this season! ❤️💙 #hottytoddy
