Public Safety

I’m committed to providing much needed support and encouragement for our police, firefighters and EMTs, allowing them to do their jobs so that we can all live in a safer community. It is a fact that most officers are fair minded, outstanding members of the community and should not be judged by the poor decisions of a few. In the Senate, I will continue to be a strong advocate for those who fight to keep our communities safe.

Currently, I am advocating for S. 276 which will make it illegal for people to threaten to cause mass destruction in places where the public gathers. The bill passed out of the Senate last year and is now residing in the House.
