Twitter Web App : Granite Staters rely on U.S. Postal Service for medication, voting and other essential needs, but are experiencing serious delays with mail delivery due to the Postmaster General’s harmful policy changes that put politics over the USPS survival. The NH delegation is demanding answers.

Twitter Web App : The census is one of the most consequential actions our nation takes to ensure Americans get the representation & resources they deserve. Commerce OIG must investigate political pressure to rush the census, which risks jeopardizing the accuracy of results.

Twitter Web App : This week is #NationalHealthCenterWeek! Health centers are on the frontlines of COVID-19 & play a key role in delivering quality care in NH, especially in rural communities. Grateful for all these facilities & their health care professionals do each day to keep us healthy & safe.

Twitter Web App : Students, graduates & families need relief now to survive this crisis. Young Americans were hit by the Great Recession and now this -- future COVID-19 response legislation must include help for them. twitter.com/MarkWarner/sta…

Twitter Web App : NH’s independent entertainment venues are some of the hardest-hit biz during the COVID-19 crisis. To help this industry survive, Congress must act. I’m joining Senator Jon Tester & Senator Tom Carper on legislation to provide the help these biz desperately need. shaheen.senate.gov/news/press/sha…

Twitter Web App : .NHNG members are on COVID-19's frontlines, helping to ramp up COVID testing, assist food banks & much more. Now, they're working to ensure Granite Staters can safely exercise their civic duty. We cannot thank them enough for their service during this difficult time. twitter.com/NHNationalGuar…

Twitter Web App : The admin’s incessant efforts to rollback LGBTQ rights are appalling. The Department of State needs to reverse new barriers to citizenship for children born abroad to same-sex American couples. This cruel discrimination must stop NOW. My letter w/Tim Kaine & colleagues:

Twitter Web App : Organizations like the Triangle Club in Dover are working tirelessly to help those w/substance use disorder. COVID has worsened the SUD crisis that impacts so many in NH. Future relief legislation must include help for recovery organizations to meet the needs of Granite Staters.

Twitter Web App : On my call w/ NH rural town managers today, they highlighted numerous challenges, short & long term, in their struggle to stay afloat amid COVID-19. This is urgent: Congress must include financial relief for NH communities to help them survive this crisis. youtube.com/watch?v=2aC6nZ…

Twitter Web App : That’s why I'm pushing for the inclusion of a universal charitable deduction and direct aid in future relief bills. We need to ensure these organizations can continue to perform their vital work on the frontlines of this crisis.

Twitter Web App : Had a call w/NH nonprofits, which are working tirelessly to shield those vulnerable from the impacts of COVID-19. However, many are struggling to survive as this crisis has lowered the number of donations they’re receiving & increased demand for services. youtube.com/watch?v=Efe6fo…

Twitter Web App : The admin is reimbursing some states’ National Guard activation at 100%, while others like NH, are only reimbursed at 75%. Unacceptable. NH can’t afford added costs during this crisis. The admin needs to stop playing politics & fully federally fund ALL Guard units. twitter.com/SenatorLeahy/s…

Twitter Web App : The unlawful arrest & detention of U.S. citizen Vitaly Shklyarov is indicative of the chaos & illegality surrounding the election in Belarus. Vitaly must be released & more information is needed to understand the administration’s plans to send an Ambassador to Minsk at this time

Twitter Web App : At Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter today, I heard more from advocates on the looming eviction crisis vulnerable NH families are facing. Families need help now. The fed gov has a responsibility to help ensure those most at risk dont lose their homes & our homeless shelters have the support they need.

Twitter Web App : Enhanced unemployment benefits have been a lifeline for NH families allowing them to stay financially afloat. As my conversation today with impacted Granite Staters made clear, there must be a bipartisan agreement to continue providing this assistance. youtu.be/2Lyp4B9jws8
