The Assad regime has relentlessly targeted its own citizens, including women and children, while...

Last month, General John W. Nicholson told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the war in Afghanistan has come to a stalemate, but our mission in Afghanistan is too important to risk sliding into strategic failure.

EXPLAINING THE YEAS & NAYS: Today I voted to undo an Obama-era regulation that violated the law by giving federal bureaucrats the final say over holding schools accountable. Arizona’s schools, teachers and parents know what is best for their children’s’ future, not the federal government. Our vote today will restore states’ power over important educational decisions.

Today I spoke at a Senate Indian Affairs Committee hearing on the importance of improving educational opportunities for Native American students. Statistic after statistic shows the Bureau of Indian Education is failing these children.

Today, I introduced legislation that would transfer the financial burden of maintenance and capital upgrades to the International Outfall Interceptor sewage pipeline from the city of Nogales, Arizona, to the federal government. For years, the people of Nogales have been unfairly footing the bill for a disproportionate percentage of the operating costs of the IOI.

Nogales residents should not...
