My proposed Food Labeling Modernization Act would crack down on misleading marketing claims and make it much easier for consumers to quickly assess how "healthy" a given packaged food item is for them and their families. scientificamerican.com/article/is-thi…
Robocalls are annoying at best – at worst, they can be misleading and dangerous. That’s why my TRACED Act cut the red tape so the @FCC can enforce the ban on #robocalls. It’s good to see that in action.
New data shows that #COVID19 vaccines remain highly effective at reducing the risk of severe illness despite the spread of the highly contagious delta variant. Please protect yourself, your loved ones, and community by getting the vaccine. washingtonpost.com/health/breakth…
Best of luck to @TeamUSA competing at the #Paralympics! You are an inspiration to all of us watching here in the U.S.
I had an excellent meeting with my Youth Advisory Council today. I spoke about the importance of public service and the need for everyone to get involved in their communities.
As states across the country enact restrictive, anti-voter laws, this bill is critical to ensuring that our democracy functions as it should by finally restoring the full strength of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
I proudly voted today for the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2021. The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy, and every voter deserves to have their voice heard. #RestoretheVote
BREAKING: We just passed the resolution allowing congressional committees, including @EnergyCommerce, to begin work on the #BuildBackBetter Act. This will deliver transformative benefits for working families, create jobs, address climate change, and lower health care costs.
I spoke on the House Floor today in strong support of the resolution that will kick off Congress' work on the historic investment in American families and deliver on our #BuildBackBetter Agenda.
Today I spoke at the House Rules Committee on the infrastructure bill and the importance of passing it alongside the budget resolution so that we can deliver on President Biden's #BuildBackBetter Agenda.
Last month, I held a hearing in @EnergyCommerce #SubOversight on stopping digital thieves and the growing threat of ransomware, and I'll continue to work across the aisle to ensure we strengthen our nation's cybersecurity. energycommerce.house.gov/committee-acti…
Ransomware is a threat at every level and requires a whole-of-government response. As Chairman of @EnergyCommerce, I'm committed to working with the Biden Admin to protect our nation’s critical infrastructure networks, businesses, and consumers. washingtonpost.com/local/local-go…
This is great news! The U.S. FDA just granted full approval of Pfizer-BioNTech's #COVID19 vaccine for those ages 16 and over. If you haven't already, please protect yourself and your loved ones by getting vaccinated. nbcnews.com/health/health-…
Reports that many hospitals are either refusing to comply with the government’s new hospital price transparency rule or making it extremely difficult for consumers to find prices are deeply concerning. Consumers deserve price transparency. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
It’s good to see the steel industry act to curb carbon emissions. My #CLEANFuture Act sets an ambitious but necessary goal to reduce our carbon footprint in industrial sectors. We cannot stand idly by as the world transitions to clean economies.wsj.com/articles/steel…
It’s unacceptable that Americans pay nearly 3x more than people in other countries for the same prescription drugs! We have the opportunity to finally rein in Rx prices, and I’m going to fight hard to get it done. nj.com/opinion/2021/0…
Good news! The application portal for the second round of Marine Fisheries #COVID19 assistance is now open until October 15. Click here for more information on how to apply: ➡️bit.ly/3y57VjN twitter.com/FrankPallone/s…
Spoke at memorial service for longtime Democratic supporter, Modestine Jenkins. With a smile and a laugh, Modestine always made politics a joy.
Hurricane #Henri has the potential to produce dangerous winds, heavy rain, and flooding in New Jersey later today and tomorrow. Use caution and take action to protect yourself, your family, and your property. twitter.com/NHC_Atlantic/s…
Glad to see #COVID19 vaccine rates are up! They're key to protecting each other, our loved ones, and our communities as more infectious variants spread. I encourage everyone to do their part and get their shot if they haven’t yet! politico.com/news/2021/08/1…
Year after year, we are seeing higher temperatures, longer summers, and stronger heat waves. This "new normal" poses a serious risk to public health and the environment, and it will only get worse if we don't act urgently to address the #ClimateCrisis. wsj.com/articles/us-ex…
The Biden Administration will forgive more than $5.8 billion in federal student loan debt for borrowers with a severe disability. This is an important step, but we need to do more to alleviate the student loan crisis plaguing millions of borrowers across the country. twitter.com/usedgov/status…
The U.S. must do everything we can to end the current humanitarian crisis. We should focus our resources on getting help to the Americans who are still there, the brave individuals who helped our troops, and vulnerable populations like ethnic and religious minorities.
.@POTUS made the right decision to leave Afghanistan. It was past time for the United States to withdraw from this forever war and bring our troops home once it was clear the Afghan army would not fight.
Just wrapped up a great, productive meeting with @POTUS and my fellow House Committee leaders as Congress prepares to move forward on the historic #BuildBackBetter Agenda with critical investments in American families, jobs, and infrastructure.
Oil and gas drilling in sensitive areas of Alaska harms the environment, threatens Native communities, and endangers wildlife - specifically the polar bears that inhabit the region.   I'm relieved that this project will not move forward. washingtonpost.com/climate-enviro…
I'm asking the three largest manufacturers of insulin in the U.S. what they're doing about the unacceptably high cost of this lifesaving drug. We should not be paying more for insulin, a drug that is nearly 100 yrs old, than people in other countries. energycommerce.house.gov/newsroom/press…
The Trump EPA completely mismanaged chemical risks to our workers and families, and the testimony I heard from farm workers on chlorpyrifos last Congress was sobering. This is a long-awaited win for them and public health overall. energycommerce.house.gov/committee-acti…
This is big. Chlorpyrifos is a pesticide known to present serious human health risks, especially to children. I’ve long questioned its continued use & I’m thrilled the Biden EPA is taking action to ensure American families and farmers are protected from this toxic chemical. twitter.com/washingtonpost…
The Biden Admin announced that Americans who got Pfizer and Moderna #COVID19 vaccines should obtain booster shots 8 months after receiving their 2nd doses starting Sept 20th. The booster will strengthen immune defenses to help stop spread of the more infectious delta variant. twitter.com/AP/status/1428…
Americans pay more for Rx drugs than anyone else in the world. I'm working to pass legislation to negotiate fair prices to save consumers money, invest gov savings into improving health care, and create a fair system of profits without price gouging. nj.com/politics/2021/…
A new report finds that the ACA made important progress addressing racial health inequities, but it's clear that Congress must continue striving to improve equity in care and treatment for all Americans. nytimes.com/2021/08/17/hea…
Travelers are required to wear face coverings on airplanes, trains, and buses and at airports and train stations through January 18, 2022. This rule will prevent the spread of #COVID19 and keep travelers safe. washingtonpost.com/transportation…
The #19thAmendment, which granted women the right to vote, was ratified #OTD in 1920. We have made progress since then, but we must do more to help end gender discrimination and protect the right to vote. It's time for Congress to pass the #EqualityAct and the #ForThePeople Act!
Today, I’m requesting information from @EPA regarding new whistleblower allegations surrounding its chemical review program. If true, these allegations raise serious concerns about EPA’s implementation for years of TSCA and protections for EPA employees. energycommerce.house.gov/newsroom/press…
I'm proud to join my colleagues as a cosponsor of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act that will restore the Voting Rights Act & help prevent voter discrimination.   I cannot think of a better way to honor his memory than to pass legislation to protect every American's right to vote. twitter.com/RepTerriSewell…
President Biden made the right decision to halt federal oil and gas leasing, but we need a legislative solution that will help end our reliance on fossil fuels. An important first step would be passing my legislation to permanently ban offshore drilling in the Atlantic Ocean. twitter.com/Reuters/status…
Good to see that Middlesex College is using federal funds from the #AmericanRescuePlan to forgive student debt incurred during the pandemic. The past year has been stressful enough for students. mycentraljersey.com/story/news/edu…
Even before the pandemic, far too many Americans struggled to put healthy meals on the table. This increase – the largest increase in the #SNAP program's history – will help reduce hunger and increase access to nutritious foods for millions of families across the country. twitter.com/washingtonpost…
During a tour and roundtable with @LtGovOliver and representatives from Community Health Centers, we discussed the need to make sure the Centers have the resources they need to continue their important work. Everyone deserves access to affordable health care.
It was an honor to have @SecBecerra in New Jersey today. It’s finally time to empower the federal government to negotiate the cost of prescription drugs. Too many New Jerseyans do not take their medications because of high costs. It’s time to #lowerdrugcosts now.
We are LIVE with @SecBecerra, @LtGovOliver, and @NJDeptofHealth Commissioner Judy Persichilli at the Eric B. Chandler Health Center in New Brunswick to talk about the important work Community Health Centers do to ensure access to affordable health care. twitter.com/LtGovOliver/st…
I’m in New Brunswick with @SecBecerra to talk about why we need to lower prescription drug costs for all Americans. My bill, the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act, would give the federal government the ability to negotiate lower drug prices. #LowerDrugCosts twitter.com/ProtectOurCare…
Blaming Armenia is a clear sign of Aliyev's bad faith arguments during & after the war in Artsakh last year. The U.S. shouldn't blame both sides when casting guilt for the bloodshed & instability in the region. @StateDept must use every tool available to stop Aliyev's aggression. twitter.com/AZERTAC/status…
The trauma that was inflicted upon the men and women who protected our Capitol on January 6 is undeniable. These are scars that they may carry with them for a long time. Their families deserve benefits for the sacrifice they have made. nj.com/opinion/2021/0…
I agree with @SenBooker and I'm glad that he is calling Republicans out for their false claims that Democrats want to defund the police. twitter.com/NJ_Politics/st…
Sending my best wishes to the Indian American community in New Jersey on this 75th Indian Independence Day. Today, we celebrate the partnership between our nations and recommit to strengthening our ties.🇺🇸🇮🇳
Reception for newly appointed Superior Court Judge Bina Desai with her family. Bina has had a distinguished career as Middlesex County's First Assistant Prosecutor.
Celebrated Indian Independence Day in Iselin with Peter Kothari and the Indian American Cultural Society.
