Sex traffickers who sell women and children online must be held accountable for their actions. Recently, @TheJusticeDept  secured the first guilty plea under my bipartisan #SESTA  law in their prosecution against CityXGuide.

We are currently seeing some of the highest inflation rates in decades. If Dems pass their massive $3.5 trillion spending bill it will send prices soaring even further - both by raising taxes and by significantly increasing supply side spending.

The lack of accountability for cybersecurity in the federal govt weakens our nation’s ability to ensure an effective national defense against cyberattacks. As I said today during the #HSGAC  hearing, accountability is a critical aspect of any cybersecurity strategy.

I was concerned to hear from @NPPD  Director Jen Easterly today that they believe the recent & ongoing ManageEngine cyberattack was the work of a nation-state actor. These attacks are becoming far too common. We must shore up our national cyber defenses.

Passage of the historic bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on Monday would be a great victory for the American people. My full statement with @SenBillCassidy , @SenatorCollins , @lisamurkowski  & @SenatorRomney :

Pleased to announce that the 2022 NDAA extends and increases security aid funding to our ally Ukraine. This funding reaffirms our unwavering support for the Ukrainian people as they strive to secure a democratic, prosperous, and independent future.

I will continue to work to ensure that no more women or children become victims of this terrible crime.

In May we were shocked to learn that a former @ClevelandClinic  researcher allegedly stole research for China’s Gov't. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. China has been stealing research+IP from universities for 20+ yrs. It's time to end it.

I'm pleased to announce that Senators Warner, Toomey, Sinema, Lummis & I have reached an agreement on an amendment to clarify IRS reporting rules for crypto transactions w/o curbing innovation or imposing information reporting requirements on stakers, miners, or other non-brokers

The #PaycheckProtectionProgram  has already issued 1M+ loans to small businesses, saving millions of jobs nationwide. But yesterday the program ran out of money. And Democrats have blocked a measure to replenish it. Let’s stop playing politics & fund this vital lifeline now.

Just voted to pass the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, providing: - Free coronavirus testing - Paid sick leave - Expanded food assistance - Enhanced unemployment insurance - Support for small businesses Much more is needed, but this is a start.

Throughout America’s history, the peaceful transition of power has been a hallmark of our democracy. This year, both candidates must commit to abiding by the results, no matter the outcome.

Pleased @POTUS  @realDonaldTrump  signed into law the legislation I supported to impose sanctions on Chinese officials implementing the National Security Laws in Hong Kong. America stands with the freedom loving people of Hong Kong.
