Earlier this month, @SenJackReed & I urged the @USGAO to investigate the national security risks posed by climate change to the @DeptofDefense supply chain. I’m pleased that the GAO accepted our request.
This morning I sent a letter to the @DHSOIG requesting an investigation into how @DHSgov obtained surveillance data from family separation protests & how DHS officials & law enforcement agencies have used that information. I want answers.
.@Chase: why aren’t customers saving money?
Taxpayers: we lost our jobs/homes/savings but gave you a $25b bailout
Workers: employers don’t pay living wages
Economists: rising costs + stagnant wages = 0 savings
Chase: guess we’ll never know
It is not a crime to attend a peaceful rally against this admin’s horrific family separation policy – in fact, I joined thousands of people at the Families Belong Together protest in Boston. The @DHSgov IG should investigate this serious abuse of power.

Happy to celebrate a big conservation victory: the official designation of the Nashua River system as National Wild & Scenic Rivers. Thank you @RepLoriTrahan & Niki Tsongas for leading this fight to protect the Nashua, Squannacook, & Nissitissit Rivers at the federal level.

I had a wonderful time today celebrating the designation of the Nashua River and its tributaries as wild and scenic rivers. So many people worked to bring this to completion. I was honored to play even a small role in it.
Sen. Richard Lugar was a giant in leading nonproliferation efforts. A patriot who authored Nunn-Lugar program working w/ former Soviet Union never romanticized threats but worked for peace. He will be deeply missed.
Last year, 69 workers in Massachusetts died on the job. On #WorkersMemorialDay, we honor their memory, and the millions of workers across the country who are hurt or killed at work each year. I’ll keep fighting for protections to ensure every worker is safe on the job.
The tragedy at the Chabad of Poway synagogue was an attack on the Jewish community — not just in Poway, but everywhere. We will not be divided by hate & fear. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us.
70% of adults who misuse prescription opioids get them from friends or family. I passed a bipartisan bill that lets patients partially fill opioid prescriptions. By disposing of unused medication on #TakeBackDay, you can help fight the #OpioidEpidemic. Find a collection site:

Today on her birthday, we remember Coretta Scott King, a civil rights hero who dedicated her life to the fight for racial & economic justice. On the floor of the Senate & all across this country, we won't let anyone silence her powerful voice.
