Twitter Web App : As we head into the holiday weekend, I want to remind folks we are still in the midst of a pandemic. Please celebrate responsibly. This means social distancing, wearing a mask when appropriate & limiting the amount of people you’re interacting with.

Twitter Media Studio : As we near the start of the school year, we need to make sure we open in a responsible way. My bill would establish a new federal grant program at U.S. Department of Education to ensure school districts & colleges can keep students safe and healthy.

Here's what won't happen:
❌Ballots being stolen out of mailboxes
❌Foreign countries sending in millions of fake ballots
❌Rampant voter fraud all around

Voting by mail is SAFE. apr.org/post/fact-chec…

Twitter Web App : I’m proud of the Senate for coming to a full agreement to extend PPP for five weeks. This aid plays a huge role in allowing small businesses weathered by COVID-19 to maintain payroll. I urge the House to take action quickly & vote to pass an extension.

Twitter Web App : To the Senate—let’s pass the SAME Act & incentivize states that have yet to expand to do so.

To Alabama—let’s follow Oklahoma’s lead & give over 340,000 Alabamians access to health care & help our struggling hospitals.

It’s time to #ExpandMedicaid.
