Great news! Over 6.5 million federal dollars will be invested into the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. @USACEHQ's Chesapeake Bay Oyster Recovery Program and Environmental Restoration and Protection Program are vital in making the Bay, and our state, better for our kids and grandkids.
Economic projections by @USCBO show that our budget deficit will fall by $1.7 trillion—the largest in US history—and inflation is cooling off. Thanks to @POTUS and the #AmericanRescuePlan, we are strengthening our economy and helping hardworking Americans.
@Stillsmack @McDanielWeissle Over 85% of Americans support universal background checks on gun sales. That’s common sense. That’s a starting point. That’s what HR 8, which I proudly voted for LAST year, would establish.
My people know it 👇, your people know it: it’s time to take action and pass common sense #GunReform. @McDanielWeissle, if we keep fighting together, we CAN and WILL save lives. We’ve got to keep holding the Gun Lobby’s feet to the fire. We can’t give up. And we won’t.
Last night in Cumberland, Maryland. I don't know that I did any good, I certainly didn't change the world, but I couldn't bear to sit idle at home. Only two days out of bed after battling covid oh, but I felt I had no choice.
@McDanielWeissle @McDanielWeissle, you’re making Maryland proud. If we keep fighting together, we CAN and WILL effect change. Enough has been enough. I won’t stop fighting to save precious lives.
I sat down with the Chief Advocacy Officer for @NAMICommunicate to discuss #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Hannah really hit the nail on the head here. No one should be defined by their mental illness and no one should feel ashamed to ask for help. It's ok to not be ok.
This week, @SenMarkey and I sent a letter to @POTUS urging his administration to enact our recommendations from the Commission on Combating Synthetic #Opioid Trafficking. Americans need their people in power firing on all cylinders to end this crisis. https://trone.house.gov/2022/05/23/opioid-commission-report/
This week, #TeamMaryland secured nearly $200 million to support small businesses and spur economic growth in Maryland through the @USTreasury's State Small Business Credit Initiative Program. We can never do enough to support Maryland's small businesses.
How many more children have to die? How many more parents have to mourn? How many more times do we have to have this conversation? Enough is enough. 84% of voters support background checks. It's time to #StopGunViolence. If the Senate won't act, we must act in November.
Americans are fed up with Congress and its failure to act on commonsense #GunReform—and rightfully so. HR 8, which requires universal background checks, passed the House in March 2021, but it's stuck in the Senate because too many folks won't stand up to the gun lobby.
