This week we learned that 1) former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn may have broken the law by not disclosing business dealings with Russia and 2) Russia-linked hackers tried to meddle with the election in France. As I've said for months, this isn't about one candidate or even one country. It's about protecting democracies around the world. We need an independent commission to get to...

Doctor shortages are a problem for too many rural communities. The Conrad 30 program has helped by bringing 15,000 physicians to underserved and rural areas over the last 15 years. It simply says that immigrant doctors who are fully educated in the U.S. can stay three years after their residency if they agree to work in areas where we don't have enough doctors. I introduced a bill with U.S....

Intravenous saline solution is essential for taking care of patients - hospitals can't fully function without it. But the U.S. has experienced a shortage of this medicine since 2013. Senator Orrin Hatch, Senator Richard Blumenthal, United States Senator Mike Lee, and I called for an investigation of possible collusion between saline manufacturers, and now the Department of Justice's Antitrust...

It's National Park Week! Minnesota has great national parks, monuments, riverways, and trails - like the North Country Scenic Trail, which extends from New York to North Dakota by way of Northern Minnesota. My bill to complete the trail route in Minnesota passed through committee earlier this month. Let's keep our park system the jewel it has always been!

Today people in Minnesota and across America are spending Earth Day at the March for Science. They are speaking out against climate change deniers and for STEM education and publicly-funded research. They are united in a belief that our future depends on policies being based on facts, science, and evidence. And at a time when some even question whether facts exist, that's pretty important. I...

Purple reigns in Minnesota today! A year after his untimely death, we remember Prince by celebrating the incredible music he left us, the artistic integrity he stood for, and, in a tribute to his iconic sense of style, all things purple. The world is a whole lot cooler because Prince was in it - and a whole lot sadder now that he's gone. He touched our hearts, opened our minds, and made us...

Today Congressman Tom Emmer and I hosted leaders from across Minnesota to discuss the need for a strong response to the famine in the Horn of Africa. Our country’s role as a world leader depends on both a strong military and our ability to provide foreign aid to help stabilize the economies of countries in dire need. That’s why we’re working on a bipartisan basis, urging the President to...

UPDATE: The Trump Administration has postponed its meeting to discuss exiting the Paris climate agreement, and it's being reported that policy advisors are urging President Trump to keep the U.S. in. It's simple: Climate change is one of the greatest threats to our world, and walking away from this landmark agreement would hurt U.S. leadership globally. So many of you have shared posts on...

EPA Administrator Pruitt recently said the U.S. should "exit" the historic Paris Agreement. For the first time, 175 countries agreed to tackle climate change, one of the greatest threats to our world. Now Politico reports that senior advisors from the Administration are meeting as soon as today to decide whether to walk away from this landmark agreement. Will you stand with me and tell the...

It's a fact that Russia tried to undermine our elections last year. But the U.S. hasn't been the only democracy they've targeted. On a recent trip to Eastern Europe with Senators McCain and Graham, I heard about everything from Russia using economic blackmail against countries like Lithuania to their hackers targeting Ukraine 6,500 times in just a few months. To curb Russia's interference...

Jim Oberstar's fingerprints can be traced back to so many critical infrastructure projects across the Arrowhead, including one along Highway 169. Jim fought hard to secure funding for a dangerous stretch of 169 between Tower and Ely. Well, after about twenty years and a lot of hard work, Minnesotans broke ground on this critical project. US Rep Rick Nolan and I carried on Jim's torch and...

Over the last two days I met with people in 10 counties across Northern Minnesota to discuss ways to strengthen the rural economy. Focused on my bipartisan American Apprenticeship Act with manufacturers like Wyoming Machine in Stacy and saw firsthand how they're training workers and creating high-wage jobs. And transportation leaders from all over the Arrowhead region joined together in Duluth...

With strains being identified across the U.S. and now here in Minnesota, synthetic opioids like fentanyl and carfentanil are driving a spike in overdose deaths. And they’re posing new challenges for partners in the fight to combat the opioid crisis, too. I joined first responders and doctors with Allina Health, law enforcement, and leading advocates from the Steve Rummler Hope Foundation to...

Today President Trump will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping and here's one topic they need to discuss: Illegal steel dumping. Over the past few years more than 13,600 miners have lost their jobs and a big reason is steel dumping from China and other countries. That's why I led a group of steel state senators in calling on the President to bring this up during his meeting. I've seen...

Last year pharmaceutical company Mylan justified dramatic EpiPen price hikes by claiming high quality products and strong safety standards. But on Friday Mylan extended an international recall of EpiPens distributed between December 2015 and July 2016 to the U.S. based on multiple reports of defects that made the EpiPens difficult to use in emergencies. I'll be urging Mylan to provide more...

Carfentanil - a powerful synthetic opioid from China - has recently claimed the lives of at least five Minnesotans. Senator Rob Portman and I introduced legislation to help law enforcement crack down on the trafficking of synthetic opioids and keep these dangerous drugs out of our country.

Congratulations to Minnesota Arboretum staff, volunteers and supporters! This week the Minnesota Arboretum was voted the Best Botanical Garden in the U.S. It was always my mom's favorite place to visit, and she especially liked the apple trees when they blossomed in the spring. We go there a lot in her memory and John, Abigail and I love the bog walk!
