Green Banks are a force multiplier that put us on a path to a more sustainable clean energy future & create more good-paying jobs. We’ve seen their success in Maryland & I’ll keep fighting to make them a reality across our nation. https://bit.ly/3t3R8hk
Congratulations to the 2022 @NavalAcademy graduates. As @POTUS said, the Academy has trained you to be leaders. You have the opportunity to guide our world to a more peaceful, prosperous future, and I can’t wait to see the good work you go on to do!
President Joe Biden will deliver remarks in Annapolis today at the U.S. Naval Academy’s graduation ceremony. Here's what you need to know and a look back at @NavalAcademy #commissioningweek.
I’m still following doctors’ advice and managing my recovery from home. Look forward to returning to Senate as soon as possible. In the meantime, I wanted to provide a quick update on where I stand on what’s going on in our nation.
Read this headline and tell me easy access to guns are not a big part of the problem. We cannot keep putting our children in this kind of danger over & over again. America’s parents are demanding action, and they deserve better. https://www.axios.com/2022/05/26/gun-deaths-children-america
.@ChrisMurphyCT, I'm with you. The American people are demanding accountability and change – and it's long past time we deliver. We are once again inviting those who have protected the unacceptable status quo to join us — or get out of the way.
Big congratulations to Mae Anna Beale. Mae is not only a tireless force for good on behalf of the Howard County community, but this weekend she achieved a dream decades in the making. You’re an inspiration to us all, Mae. https://wjla.com/news/local/82-year-old-graduates-from-college-university-of-maryland-global-campus-howard-county-bachelor-degree-business-management-lpn-nurse-career-childrens-hospital-walter-reed-national-military-medical-center-washington-dc-mae-beale-may-18-2022
Glad that my strong objections to Putin, his dictatorship & his despicable war against Ukraine are being heard loud & clear by the Kremlin. This only reinforces my determination to continue the fight on behalf of the Ukrainian people, freedom & democracy.
As a father, I can only imagine the crushing pain experienced by these parents. As a lawmaker, I am deeply angered by the shameful refusal of my GOP colleagues to take action to end the horrific status quo. This cannot become who we are.
Two years ago today our nation witnessed the murder of George Floyd. @POTUS' new EO is an important 1st step to address the use of excessive force, but to make lasting progress we must still enact the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/24/politics/justice-department-excessive-force/index.html
Horrific beyond words.
Every parent’s worst nightmare. We are failing our nation’s children, and their teachers, by acting as though these mass shootings are normal or unavoidable.
BREAKING: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says 14 students and one teacher were killed in a shooting Tuesday at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
Abbott says the suspected shooter, an 18-year-old man, is also dead. http://apne.ws/CR6m2X9
