On December 7th, 1941, 20 year old Carl Bradley was killed in action at Pearl Harbor. Today, nearly 80 years later, he was laid to rest in his hometown of Shelley, Idaho.   Thank you to everyone who came out today to commemorate Carl’s life & sacrifice. He’s finally home.
This story may have come out of North Carolina, but the trend is national. Our law enforcement officers play a crucial role in keeping our communities safe. Now more than ever, they need our support. nytimes.com/2021/06/24/us/…
We’re talking heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat exhaustion is milder, but sometimes it can be a pre-cursor to heat stroke. If you’re experiencing exhaustion, go to a cooler place and hydrate. Those experiencing heat stroke need medical attention immediately. @kxly4news

The President’s nominee to head the ATF is a gun control activist who wants to ban the most popular rifle in America for law-abiding citizens. With views like this, David Chipman is unfit to lead @ATFHQ.

Access to affordable prescription drugs is one of the greatest challenges facing Idahoans, particularly in rural communities. Yesterday I joined @MikeCrapo in introducing the Lower Costs, More Cures Act to provide relief to families across Idaho. �risch.senate.gov/public/index.c…PT
We need a long-term solution to build & maintain a deep bench of cybersecurity professionals to address the increasing threat of cyberattacks on our nation’s critical infrastructure & systems. I’m pleased to see @uidaho play its part to address this need. twitter.com/uidaho/status/…
Even President Obama’s Bureau of Land Management director agrees: someone involved with eco-terrorists is not fit to lead America’s largest land management agency. Tracy Stone-Manning should withdraw from consideration to lead @BLMNational. eenews.net/stories/106373…
Tracy Stone-Manning—a former member of the ecoterrorist group Earth First—is unfit to lead @BLMNational, an agency w/ enormous power over federal lands, particularly in Alaska. Last night, I called on @POTUS to withdraw her nomination. 📺 Watch here:sen.gov/PO9OR6

I’m pleased to see the @CityofTwinFalls honor these ladies for their life-saving efforts. As they head off to college in the fall, the story of their heroism won’t soon be forgotten in the Magic Valley. @KMVTNews kmvt.com/2021/06/22/fil…
Americans deserve free & fair elections – not a rigged system. #S1 is dangerous for democracy.
#S1 would put public funds in the pockets of politicians. Taxpayers should not be forced to foot the bill for partisan political campaigns.
#S1 would give the federal government unprecedented power. It would legalize paid ballot harvesting & undermine voter ID laws. Americans need confidence in elections, not more doubt.
Republican opposition to Tracy Stone-Manning's nomination for director of the Bureau of Land Management now has a Democrat and former senior Obama-era official on its side. nytv.to/N08RX

Congratulations to @CSIEagles cowboy Russell Kay on a strong finish at the @collegerodeo National Finals! magicvalley.com/sports/college…
Some of my colleagues have conceded that the nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management made a “mistake” some decades back. Conspiring with tree spikers is not a mistake. twitter.com/SenatorRisch/s…
Unparalleled bravery from the @IdahoFallsPD & @IdahoFallsFire who entered a burning home to save a wheelchair-bound woman. eastidahonews.com/2021/06/body-c…

I’m proud to have received conservative excellence awards from @ACUConservative. Conservative values have made Idaho a success story. DC would be wise to take a page out of Idaho’s playbook.
.@SBAgov had months to process applications from shuttered venue operators, yet fewer than 100 grants have gone out. Today, I signed @JohnCornyn’s letter requesting transparency on this issue.

The Obama-era WOTUS rule trampled states’ rights and risks the livelihoods of hardworking farmers & ranchers. I will fight to preserve the current standards and prevent further federal overreach on Idaho’s water. capitalpress.com/ag_sectors/wat…
Last week, on their way home from prom, two Idaho teens rescued a man from a car wreck. The girls pulled the unconscious victim from the vehicle & administered CPR, saving the man’s life. Today, they were honored for their heroism. A truly incredible story.
The Biden Administration has marked the Navigable Waters Protection Rule for review, potential repeal, or amendment. We should not go back to the Obama-era WOTUS rule that created massive bureaucratic hurdles for property owners, beneficial users, and the respective states. twitter.com/RepRussFulcher…

More on the Defending Keystone Jobs Act here: risch.senate.gov/public/index.c…
As many as 60K jobs were lost because of Keystone’s cancelation. Meanwhile, Russia continues to build its Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The Defending Keystone Jobs Act I intro'd yesterday would require the administration to report just how many jobs were erased.wsj.com/articles/keyst…
This is the largest year-over-year increase in prices since the Great Recession, and massive stimulus spending is a contributing factor. Proposals for further federal spending, coupled with job-killing tax hikes, are not the remedy for economic recovery. twitter.com/WSJ/status/140…
