Today thousands of Americans across the country are participating in the March On for Voting Rights to fight back against voter suppression. The time is now to pass federal voting rights law to protect the right to vote for all. twitter.com/StandUpAmerica…
On this day we celebrate the 58th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and recognize that there is still more work to be done to protect voting rights today. We must pass the #JohnLewisVotingRightsAct and the #ForThePeopleAct.
John Porcari is an incredible public servant who knows infrastructure systems inside and out as Transportation Secretary in Maryland and as @USDOT for the Obama Admin.
Porcari is an excellent choice for Port Envoy and will serve our nation well. @portofbalttwitter.com/iduncan/status…
Ritchie Boys were heroes who used their innate skills to gather information from all sources and save the lives of American and Allied troops. Our praise for their bravery and valor may have been delayed, but our thanks cannot be overstated.
Happy #NationalDogDay! Pet ownership can be especially helpful and therapeutic for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder, helping veterans get more active, rebuild trust, and transition to civilian life.
As the late Rep. Cummings said, “When it hits your house and it hits your family, I’ll tell you, it’s a lot different ...you can also understand the pain and the anger and the desire for closure that is, making sure that whoever might be responsible...is brought to justice.”
After 10 years of investigating, the U.S. Marshals Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force (CARFTF) and Norfolk Police Department arrested the suspects in the 2011 murder of the late Congressman Elijah Cumming’s nephew.
Alarmed by the news that Pres. Kais Saied of Tunisia today extended the suspension of parliament until further notice.
I urge Mr. Saied to adhere to the principles of democracy and a swift return to Tunisia’s parliamentary democracy.
This is an important milestone for Ukraine, marking three decades since an independent Ukraine rose from the ashes of the Soviet Union’s collapse. My joint statement w/ @SenatorCardin, @SenRonJohnson & @senrobportman on Ukraine’s 30th anniversary of independence.
Atrocities committed in #Tigray and elsewhere in #Ethiopia require accountability. The #Eritrean Defense Forces have committed serious human rights abuses & impeded humanitarian access in Ethiopia. It’s good to see the U.S. sanctioning the EDF's chief of staff for these abuses. twitter.com/SecBlinken/sta…
In Baltimore, extreme temperature plague classrooms. It is appalling to see students wear coats because of the lack of adequate heating in the winter or students sent home when the air conditioning fails in the summer and early fall.
Our children deserve the highest quality education possible, and that includes the school facilities they attend. The budget resolution provides funding for school construction and renovation, including HVAC systems.
Important this week from @POTUS: @RNicholasBurns is a seasoned diplomat nominated to be US ambassador to China. @RahmEmanuel, nominated to be ambassador to Japan, brings a lifetime of public service to every task. We urgently need to break the logjam on confirming US ambassadors.
Chlorpyrifos is one of the toxic chemicals of most concern to the Chesapeake Bay.
The EPA's action to end all use of chlorpyrifos will not only protect human health, it will save the Bay’s precious wildlife including birds, fish, crabs and oysters. twitter.com/EPA/status/142…
.@SenatorCardin is now talking about the Red Line project and transportation at-large in Maryland. “We do think that the transportation system in Baltimore needs significant attention. … we’re going to push hard with the state to make that a reality.” #MACoCon#MDpolitics
Thank you @CapitolPolice, law enforcement, and others for the brave and heroic response to yesterday's domestic terror threat in DC. We are constantly thankful for those who are on the front lines ensuring the safety of our Capitol.
#TeamMaryland and @USACEBaltimore are working to save our beaches with the Beach Renourishment Project. @OCMaryland
I cannot emphasize it enough, with the threats of climate change our beaches are vulnerable to rising sea levels. We have to act now before it is too late.
Our focus must remain on getting Americans & our allies out of Afghanistan quickly & safely.
I hope that our states will welcome refugees with open arms. @POTUS says our foreign policy is wrapped in American values, now is our time to show it.
It’s has been 101 years since the ratification of the #19thAmendment giving women the constitutional right to vote.
Let’s honor this day by committing ourselves to protecting and expanding the right to vote, making sure that everyone has equal access to the ballot box.
Scenic America was honored to join Senator Ben Cardin, Maryland tourism officials, Escape to Talbot County, Wicomico County Tourism and others yesterday to celebrate the dedication of the Chesapeake Country All-American Road! wmdt.com/2021/08/celebr…
“This [climate] report points out something that we knew, that this is urgent,” @SenatorCardin says. “We have to take even more dramatic steps and we need to get strong support of the global community.”
What is happening in Afghanistan is a humanitarian crisis.
Today, our mission is to get Americans out of the country as quickly and safely as possible, along with evacuating those who risked their lives to help us and the Afghan government.
The Chesapeake Country all-American road is a 400 mile route that ties together the history of Maryland, from highlighting the Underground Railroad to showing off the incredible importance of the Chesapeake Bay.
“The tragedy that’s taking place in Afghanistan—a lot of people are going to be hurt and killed, the progress that we made in regards to women and girls is going to be lost,” @SenatorCardin says. “This is a humanitarian crisis.”
