Today, @nkcpolice Officer Daniel Vasquez was tragically killed in the line of duty. Chief Freeman described Officer Vasquez as a phenomenal person and a friend to everybody. Our thoughts are with Officer Vasquez's family and the North Kansas City Police Department.
We’re facing historic inflation and on the verge of recession – yet Democrats are continuing to push their reckless spending. Spending more will NOT get us out of this economic disaster.
On July 19, 2018, 17 people lost their lives in the Duck Boat tragedy at Table Rock Lake. Today we remember the victims and their loved ones who have grieved and missed them every day since. A tragedy like this must never happen again. ky3.com/2022/07/18/duc…
I'm proud of the work Congress has done to support the network of crisis centers answering these calls, and I hope this transition will make it easier for people to reach out and get the lifesaving help they need, when they need it. blunt.senate.gov/news/press-rel…
Starting tomorrow, people experiencing a mental health crisis can call or text 988 to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and be connected with a trained mental health professional.
Democrats haven’t learned their lesson – their partisan $1.9T spending bill has led to the highest inflation in more than 40 years. And now they want to repeat their mistake with another reckless tax-and-spend spree.
From NPS: "This was the first time in U.S. history that a birthplace site was designated as a national monument to someone other than a U.S. president, and the first time a unit of the national park system was established to honor the contributions of an African American."
On this day in 1943, a bill authorizing the establishment of the George Washington Carver National Monument became law. This monument in Newton County pays tribute to the scientist whose research fundamentally transformed American agriculture.
This all-Democrat government has produced yet another absolutely terrible inflation report. Staggeringly bad numbers that represent crushing pain for millions of families. Fueled by the trillions in reckless spending that Democrats rammed through on party lines last year.

Democrats’ misguided “spend, spend, spend” policies have gotten us to the point – inflation is at a nearly 41-year high.
This is the first state-commissioned statue of a Black American to be placed in Statuary Hall. I hope it will encourage everyone who visits the U.S. Capitol to learn more about her legacy and lasting impact on our country. 📷: Senate PhotographyV
Yesterday, I had the honor of joining the Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune statue unveiling. As an educator, civil rights leader, and presidential advisor, Mary McLeod Bethune dedicated her life to changing our nation for the better.
988 FAQs - What happens when I Text 988? Text (English only) will be available by July 16. When someone texts to 988, they will be responded to by a group of Lifeline crisis centers that respond to chat & text. A crisis counselor will work with you to provide support/resources

The Recovering America’s Wildlife Act has strong bipartisan backing and it’s no surprise why – this bill would make the largest investment in wildlife and habitat conservation in a generation. From @MissouriTimes: themissouritimes.com/historic-inves…
Starting July 16, Missourians experiencing a mental health crisis can call or text 988 to connect with a mental health professional. bransontrilakesnews.com/news/local/art…
Inflation surged to 9.1% in June. More reckless spending and higher taxes will only make this economic disaster even worse.
Sweden and Finland will both bring significant geographic and security benefits to the NATO alliance. I visited both countries recently, and I strongly support their membership in NATO. I urge the Senate to act quickly to get it done. blunt.senate.gov/news/videos/fo…
Americans’ wallets have been squeezed by skyrocketing prices for months. With the risk of heading into a recession, now is NOT the time to raise taxes.
Great to hear the FAA is investing $5.2 million to improve terminals in three airports across our state. Missouri's greatest competitive advantage is our location, and these investments will help ensure our state remains a national transportation hub. blunt.senate.gov/news/press-rel…

Columbia Scout Troop 6 returned their fellow Scouts' acts of service by providing them with toothbrushes, clean clothes, and helping them out however they could. A significant life lesson in kindness during a difficult time. komu.com/news/midmissou…
When a train derailed in Chariton County earlier this week, Boy Scout Troops 12 and 73 from Wisconsin were on board, returning home from scout camp. They immediately jumped into action to get other passengers to safety and make sure people were okay.
Today, I joined Sen. @MarshaBlackburn and seven of our colleagues in sending a letter to TikTok demanding answers on China’s reported backdoor access to Americans’ private data. blunt.senate.gov/news/press-rel…
Terrible news of a train derailment in Chariton County this afternoon. We are thinking of all those affected and grateful for our first responders. Ready to assist with any federal resources that may be needed.
In 2014, @RoyBlunt and @SenStabenow's Excellence in Mental Health Act created Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics as part of a demonstration program.

We spoke on the Senate floor today to highlight the major impact the Excellence in Mental Health provisions in the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act will have for decades to come: blunt.senate.gov/news/videos/bl…
.@SenStabenow and I have worked together for nearly a decade to ensure people have access to high-quality mental and behavioral health services & to make sure we’re treating mental health like all other health.
Making sure people who are experiencing a mental or behavioral health crisis can get the care they need, when they need it is critical to preventing another tragedy.
The bill expands the successful Excellence in Mental Health program nationwide, giving every state the opportunity to establish or expand community-based mental health clinics if they choose to do so.
The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act includes a historic step forward for mental and behavioral health care in our country.
As the first person in my family to graduate from college, I know how important Pell Grants are for students to realize their goal of a higher education. Proud to introduce this resolution with my colleagues to celebrate 50 years of the Pell Grant program. blunt.senate.gov/news/press-rel…
Last week, I spoke on the Senate floor about my concerns that President Biden is considering a misguided, costly student loan proposal that would disproportionally benefit high-income Americans and drive up the cost of education. blunt.senate.gov/news/videos/bl…
On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers brought the news to enslaved African Americans in Galveston, TX that they were free. Today, we celebrate this day as #Juneteenth – the end of slavery in America.

.@USArmy birthday goes rolling along - thanks for including me in the celebration! #army247 #armybday
Thanks to the @KCHBA for meeting with me today to discuss issues they're currently facing, including workforce shortages and supply chain problems.
Proud to join @SenJohnThune & GOP Senate leadership in introducing a bill to help ensure a level playing field, increase accountability, and protect voters’ access to information. blunt.senate.gov/news/press-rel…
It’s hard to have truly fair elections when large email platforms are deciding which messages can easily reach voters and which get buried in a spam folder.
Happy 247th birthday to the U.S. Army! Thank you to all of the brave soldiers who protect our country every day.
The Biden economy is a disaster. Inflation has hit a new 40-year high of 8.6%, costing households an extra $635 a month. The national average price for a gallon of regular gas reached $5.00 yesterday and continues to climb. Real wages are down 3%.
Senators Margaret Chase Smith and Barbara Mikulski more than earned their place in the history books. I hope that seeing these names in the U.S. Capitol will inspire future generations of women to follow their lead and leave their mark on Congress. blunt.senate.gov/news/press-rel…
I’m proud of the progress we’ve made to establish community-based mental health & addiction treatment & will continue to build upon that work.
I’m very honored to receive this recognition & grateful for @NationalCouncil’s partnership as we continue our efforts toward treating mental health like all other health. twitter.com/NationalCounci…
Under President Biden, illegal border crossings are hitting record highs. It is long past time for the administration to be honest with the American people about the crisis it’s created at the southern border and to finally do something about it.
For years, there wasn’t a single room in the Capitol named after a female senator—so @RoyBlunt & I set out to fix that. This week, we held a dedication for the Margaret Chase Smith & Barbara Mikulski rooms. What a joy to celebrate these women (& to have Senator Mikulski join us)!

Johnny Isakson worked tirelessly to get things done, especially for his fellow veterans. Naming the @DeptVetAffairs Atlanta Regional Office after him would be a fitting way to honor his innumerable contributions to veterans, Georgia, and our country. blunt.senate.gov/news/press-rel…
