No better time to get back in the DJ booth than during @LiveAtFirefly. After a year without music, DJ Teddy Beats let me join him.
Great to tour @DE_Innovates with Assistant Secretary Castillo today. When @US_EDA and the private sector invest in incubators for start-ups, innovation follows.
It’s #TelehealthAwarenessWeek! Too many low income kids don’t have access to the virtual health care that is so vital now during this pandemic. @RepLBR and I wrote the TIKES Act to help break down financial barriers and expand access to telehealth.…

Thank you Assistant Administrator Castillo for joining me today to announce @UDelaware’s selection as a @US_EDA’s 2021 University Economic Development Program grantee. A former Chrysler plant, UD’s STAR campus is proof of EDA’s grants turning adversity into opportunity.
We have a moral obligation to help our Afghan friends. I’m thankful for the work of @JFS_DE in helping refugees start a new life here in the First State.…
I know who I can call if I see something 👻spooky👻 online@CISAgovov! Great to se@CISAJenen at today’@HSGACAC hearing to discuss our nation’s cybersecurity…vy
Now that the Biden administration is putting the AIM Act into action, there’s no reason to delay ratification of the Kigali Amendment. Let's join the rest of the world as we phase down hydrofluorocarbons and lead this new era of climate action.
Join us today at 10AM ET when @EPAMichaelRegan will sign EPA’s new rule to phase down HFCs, a significant action in our efforts to tackle the climate crisis. We will be joined for remarks by @SenatorCarper and @RepPaulTonko. Watch here:

I introduced the bipartisan AIM Act to phase down super polluting refrigerants, known as HFCs, and ensure we make the climate-friendly replacements in America. Now, the Biden administration is putting our bill into action to help us avoid half a degree Celsius in global warming.…
From extreme weather to drought to catastrophic floods, our changing climate is driving millions of families out of the countries they call home. We have a moral obligation to address the root causes of displacement—one of which is tackling our climate crisis.

If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that following science saves lives and protects businesses in the long-run. Well, the science is clear: we must cut methane emissions to meet our climate goals.
Tune in this Wednesday at 10 AM ET as @SenatorCarper leads a hearing on the importance of promoting a circular economy. Witnesses include: • Elizabeth Biser of @NCDEQ • Roberta Elias of @World_Wildlife • Brian Hawkinson of @ForestandPaper • William “Billy” Johnson of @ISRI

Ray Firmani is about to turn 100 years young! This Elsmere resident and WWII veteran wouldn’t reveal his secret to a long and healthy life — but he is an American hero and an inspiration to us all. From a Navy veteran to an Army veteran, Bravo Zulu Ray!
Last year, @SenatorCarper brokered a bipartisan deal to transition away from HFCs and replace them with American-made alternatives. Now, @EPA is taking action to phase down these super pollutants and move us closer to meeting our international commitments.…

It’s true…the worst thing about DC is that it’s not a state. Great to sit down with the @washingtonpost and answer their 11 questions.…
All Delawareans should have access to high-speed, affordable internet. That’s why I’m proud to have joined @JohnCarneyDE, @RepLBR, @ChrisCoons, and @DE_DTI to announce $110 million from the #AmericanRescuePlan to help close the digital divide in the First State.
We simply can't go back to the way our economy was functioning before the pandemic. As @POTUS likes to say, we must Build Back Better. That means lowering costs for American families and creating good-paying jobs to address the climate crisis.…
I'm glad the Biden administration @EPA understands the importance of protecting our waters from all sources of pollution. The Supreme Court was crystal clear: those who pollute our waters, even by way of groundwater, are liable for that pollution.
Martha and I wish all those observing Yom Kippur in Delaware and around the world a peaceful fast.
I proudly voted for stimulus checks to help Americans stay on their feet. Resources like this are paramount to recovering from the ongoing pandemic, and @POTUS's leadership will help us get there.…
Thank you to Amanda Howe, David Uhlmann, and Carlton Waterhouse for coming before @EPWCmte today. All three are dedicated public servants nominated by @POTUS for key @EPA leadership posts. They deserve swift confirmation in the Senate.
Mom and pop shops are the heart and soul of communities in Delaware and across our country. This #smallbusinessweek, show your support for our nation's small businesses by dining or shopping locally!

Investing in electric school buses is investing in a better future for our children. As we work to build on our progress in the bipartisan infrastructure bill, I’m grateful for @LungAssociation and all those who agree—it’s time to make the switch to electric school buses!
This is an important reminder for my colleagues as we return to Washington this week. Climate change is a root cause of migration. Failing to meet our climate goals today means millions of displaced people tomorrow.…
On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we honor the legacies of those we lost and we promise to #NeverForget. I will always remember how in our collective grief, we chose to put aside our differences and come together as one united nation.
Delaware saw the highest number of COVID-19 cases since January. 665 positive results just today. Folks, vaccines are saving lives and protecting us and those around us – and they work. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, please join the 500,000+ Delawareans that have.…

.@POTUS's Build Back Better agenda is a bold, historic investment that will: ✅Lower costs for working families, ✅Ensure Americans are paying their fair share, and ✅Create good-paying jobs. It’s time to build a better future for the American people.
I’m encouraged to see @EPA taking a step in the right direction to curb #PFAS discharges. These forever chemicals present a sinister and pervasive threat to our nation’s health and economy. We must continue our efforts to tackle these dangerous toxins.…
Happy Birthday to my dear friend @ChrisCoons! I'm proud to serve alongside a dedicated public servant who works hard every day for the good people of Delaware.
The Dirty Water Rule is a prime example of the previous administration’s ignorance towards science and disregard for the environment. We have an opportunity to right the ship and better protect our nation’s water. Let’s get it done.…
Whether it’s a pandemic or storm, America’s workers get up and go to work each day. I am grateful for those men and women who power our country. Happy Labor Day!
What a beautiful day to talk recycling with the folks at @DESolidWaste! Did you know DSWA’s recycling center process everything from plastic to wood to paper? Our bipartisan infrastructure deal includes funding to strength recycling programs across the First State.
We can't afford inaction on climate. The science is clear. Our policies need to be as well.
It was great to join City Fare's Meals on Wheels program in Wilmington today to deliver meals. Despite challenges from the pandemic, @_MealsOnWheels delivered more than 870,000 meals to over 6,200 seniors last year, not missing a single day of delivery.
Too many Delaware families struggle to put food on the table each month. That’s why I’m so grateful for the work of Reverend Churchill and the volunteers at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church. Let’s all work together to eradicate food insecurity in Delaware.
This crew is always ready on the water! Thanks to Captain Theel and the crewmembers from @USCG Station Indian River Inlet for taking me out on the water today. Delaware is grateful for your all that you do to keep our coastline safe.
Protecting our pristine beaches and coasts takes an army. The bipartisan infrastructure deal we passed in the Senate funds @USACEHQ projects that make communities like Bethany Beach more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
Women should be able to make their own decisions about their health care. Yet the Supreme Court chose to not block an unconstitutional law in Texas, which starting today will erode women's health and reproductive freedoms. Together, we must fight back against this dangerous law.
The show must go on at the Smyrna Opera House! It was great to visit the @SmyrnaOpHouse today to see how they are using federal COVID relief grants, like the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant, to help keep the lights on and safely reopen to the public.
Thanks to COVID-19 relief funding, @westsidehealth in Dover has a vaccination clinic open every Tuesday from 9am - 7pm! Walk-in's are welcome. It was great to stop by and see firsthand the important work Westside Healthcare is doing everyday to help fight against the pandemic.
Remarkable leadership from @POTUS! The Child Tax Credit kept 3 million children out of poverty after the first payments went out in July. This is how we help families during the pandemic and create a better future for kids across the country.…
I was honored to join descendants of Mary Ann Shadd Cary for the dedication of the new Mary Ann Shadd Cary Post Office in Wilmington. Born in Wilmington, Shadd Cary was a trailblazing woman who fought to abolish slavery. Now all who visit this site can be reminded of her legacy.
Keep all those impacted by Hurricane Ida in your thoughts. 💜💛

Following this horrific attack in Kabul, I'm praying for the safety of our troops, American citizens, diplomats, & our Afghan allies on the ground. I'm committed to making sure our military and State Department have the resources needed to carry out this vital evacuation mission.
