Thanks to Democrats' American Rescue Plan. sj-r.com/story/business…
Your vote matters—from Illinois to California to Florida. What state you live in shouldn't determine the level of difficulty you endure when exercising your right to vote. That’s why the need to pass federal voting rights is a national imperative. We have no time to waste.
This month, about 40 million families got their second expanded Child Tax Credit payment. That's money that could be used for diapers, school supplies and food—basic needs that no working family should struggle to afford. That's why these payments must be made permanent.
The surge of COVID-19 patients in hospitals can put the health of an entire community at risk. Please, help prevent unnecessary hospitalizations by getting vaccinated. It could save a life.
Amazing news, folks—Pfizer’s vaccine has received full FDA approval for individuals ages 16 and older. The FDA has confirmed that the vaccine is safe and effective.   Now, it's up to all eligible Americans to get their shot. That's how we get to the other side of this pandemic. twitter.com/nytimes/status…
More than 94% of U.S. counties are considered "high" or "substantial" risk levels for COVID-19 community transmission. Please, protect yourself from the Delta variant by getting vaccinated.
Thank you to President Biden and @SecCardona for heeding our bipartisan request to automatically cancel student loan debt for hundreds of thousands with a total and permanent disability—giving them an opportunity to build back better free of education debt.
Most Americans agree: Something that compromises our children’s health and harms our workers doesn’t belong in our food or economy. I commend @EPA for banning the use of this pesticide on food which too often impacts minority communities. nytimes.com/2021/08/18/cli…
Many of our Afghan allies bled alongside our troops and thousands remain in grave danger as our nation completes its withdrawal. We must safely evacuate them and our U.S. citizens immediately. cnn.com/2021/08/19/pol…
Judge after judge—some even appointed by Trump himself—shot down ludicrous claims of voter fraud. The Big Lie about the election is just that: a big lie. Now, we must act to protect the future of our democracy.
With my water bill fully authorized in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, we could make the greatest investment in our water infrastructure *ever* to help get rid of the lead pipes millions are forced to rely on, remove toxic PFAS and bring us closer to environmental justice. twitter.com/LCVoters/statu…
C-130s are essential to the National Guard in carrying out work both at home and abroad, including for the 182nd Airlift Wing in Peoria.   I was proud to secure a commitment from the Air Force to keep the 182nd’s aircraft right here where they belong. hoiabc.com/2021/08/17/new…
What the bipartisan infrastructure deal could mean for Illinois: ✔cleaner drinking water & wastewater systems, thanks to my provisions ✔$18bil in federal funding ✔a chance to help improve the lives of Illinoisans for generations Proud to have helped move it closer to reality.

In our historic budget, Democrats are proving we work for working families. That means we're pushing to increase access to healthcare and lower drug costs. Healthcare is a right. Not a privilege for the few. #HealthcareAwarenessMonth
On the road to securing voting rights for all Americans, ratifying the 19th Amendment was a critical victory. But 101 years later, voting rights for many are being systematically targeted in 48 states. We can help get back on track by enshrining the right to vote in federal law. twitter.com/19thnews/statu…
The single biggest increase to food stamps ever. Under President Biden, help is here once again—and help is here to stay. apnews.com/article/health…
From the 182nd Airlift Wing in Peoria to the Illinois State Fair in Springfield, there's a lot of great things happening here in Illinois.
Over a year ago, my constituent and Navy Veteran Mark Frerichs was abducted in Afghanistan. Today, @SenatorDurbin and I wrote to @POTUS to ask that the National Security Council immediately convene to develop a course of action to secure his release and bring Mark home.
Afghan women leaders are in grave danger in the wake of the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan for all their work promoting democracy and human rights. @SenatorDurbin, our colleagues and I are urging @SecBlinken and @SecMayorkas: We must take swift action to protect them.

My statement on Afghanistan:
REMINDER: Today is the last day to sign up for affordable, high-quality healthcare under President Biden's ACA special enrollment period�healthcare.govg.
If true, this is extremely troubling and yet another reason why DeJoy and Chairman Bloom should be fired. USPS is a treasured American institution and we must prevent DeJoy and his enablers from doing even more damage to the Postal Service. washingtonpost.com/business/2021/…
Today marks 86 years since the Social Security Act became law—a victory made possible by Frances Perkins, the first woman in a presidential cabinet.   Ever since, it has provided for millions of children, seniors and Americans with disabilities.   We have a duty to expand it.
REMINDER: Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for affordable, high-quality healthcare under President Biden's ACA special enrollment period�healthcare.govg.
We ask so much from our Reserve Components, including overseas deployments and responding to short-notice requirements such as civil unrest and the COVID-19 pandemic. To better support them, we should pass my RECRUIT Act which incentivizes hiring and helps small biz do so too.
And yesterday, I joined @SenWarren to call on @SecDef to investigate reports that hunger disproportionately impacts National Guardsmen and Reservists. Our servicemembers put our nation first and we can all work harder to make sure they’re supported in return. Let’s get to work.
Right now, these troops who have specific skill sets and qualifications are only paid a fraction of what their active duty counterparts are paid. I’m glad parts of my bill are included in the FY2022 NDAA to help ensure that all servicemembers are paid equally for the same work.
An op-ed well worth the read. Congress has a duty to help resolve the many challenges facing the National Guard—and I’ve taken several actions to help get the job done.🧵twitter.com/MilitaryTimes/…M
REMINDER: There are only 2 days left to sign up for affordable, high-quality healthcare under President Biden's ACA special enrollment period�healthcare.govg.
The sooner the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal becomes law, the sooner it could help make a huge difference in the lives of Illinoisans.
Reports tell us there is “extreme food insecurity” among our National Guard and Reserve members. This is morally unconscionable—especially after all they’ve done to help our nation respond to this deadly pandemic. @SenWarren and I are urging @SecDef to get to the bottom of this.
REMINDER: There are only 3 days left to sign up for affordable, high-quality healthcare under President Biden's ACA special enrollment period�healthcare.govg.
Heather Heyer was murdered while peacefully protesting hate and white supremacy in Charlottesville, VA. Four years later, her death is no less tragic. Hatred of any kind has no place in America. Whenever and wherever you see it, speak out.
NEWS: After my colleagues and I requested guidance, I’m glad @CDCgov is recommending the COVID-19 vaccine to people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant or might become pregnant in the future.   Get vaccinated! nytimes.com/2021/08/11/hea…
With my Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act along with other critical water programs, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal would make the biggest investment in water in our nation's history. It would set us on a path to help secure clean water for all.
REMINDER: There are only 4 days left to sign up for affordable, high-quality healthcare under President Biden's ACA special enrollment period👉healthcare.govg.
✅Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal ✅Bold, historic budget @SenateDems are getting things done for working families. If passed, this reconciliation bill could provide paid family leave, tax cuts, lower drug prices, support for environmental justice communities and much more. twitter.com/washingtonpost…

Congratulations to the 20 Illinois athletes—including 5 medalists — that competed in this year’s Olympics! You’ve made Illinois and your country proud.🇺🇸
It's time to make big investments in America’s future. That means passing a budget supporting: Paid family leave, healthcare, education, child care, seniors and a pathway to citizenship. Democrats are pushing to pass these priorities to help working families and improve lives.
Congratulations to @JenniferHomendy on her Senate confirmation to lead the National Transportation Safety Board.🎉 Looking forward to working together to support transportation safety across our nation.twitter.com/SenatePress/st…m
With the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal closer to becoming law, I remain committed to ensuring many environmental justice communities—like those in Illinois—aren't left behind. I'll do everything in my power to ensure these communities get the help they so desperately need.
One day closer to building back better in America. Investments in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, ensuring working families have broadband access and—thanks to the inclusion of my Drinking Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Act—upgrading our nation’s water systems. twitter.com/Forbes/status/…
