This morning, I questioned Secretary of Labor nominee Alex Acosta in Senate HELP Committee. I asked him how he would integrate apprenticeship programs, modeled after our successful program in South Carolina and my LEAP Act, into his agenda as Labor Secretary and about his approach to the overtime rule.

Judge Neil Gorsuch is a great pick to be a Supreme Court justice. He’s fair and impartial with an impressive record.

Looking forward to following his confirmation hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee this week -

Today I questioned a FEMA official on the reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program in Senate Banking Committee. In South Carolina, we are in desperate need of remapping. In some communities, such as Beaufort County, we haven’t seen remapping in about 20 years. I asked Mr. Wright about the technology behind this in regards to flood insurance, as well as the socioeconomic impact.

So many Americans are searching for better opportunities to help lead them on the path to a brighter future. Whether it is through apprenticeships, quality education, or reinvesting in distressed communities, we must find ways to lift up those who feel like they have been left behind, like no one cares. I was one of those kids who lived paycheck-to-paycheck, almost flunked out of school, and...

When I think about ways we can tackle the issue of poverty and increase the likelihood of success, apprenticeships and job training come to mind. In South Carolina, we have witnessed a huge manufacturing renaissance through technical training. Folks are given the opportunity to acquire new skills, and in the case of apprenticeships, they can also earn while they learn.

That is why my LEAP...

March is Reading Awareness Month. Literacy is critical to an individual’s success.

In U.S. prisons, between 60-80% of women and men are functionally illiterate. That’s a staggering number. It shows how critical literacy can be for so many who may not believe the American Dream is accessible to them.

Join me in promoting the importance of literacy for Reading Awareness Month!

It is time we reimagine how we help lift people out of poverty. The American dream is alive and I want to help make it a reality for as many folks as possible. Today, 50 million Americans live in distressed regions that lack jobs and businesses. My Investing in Opportunity Act hopes to revitalize these areas by enticing private investments through a deferred capital gains tax. According to...
