Sen. Franken offers effort to pass anti-bullying legislation

Washington, D.C. -- During a press conference today (Thursday, Nov. 18), U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) launched an effort to include his legislation to combat the national crisis of anti-gay bullying and suicides as part of the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act that Congress will consider next year. Joined by Minnesotan Tammy Aaberg, whose son committed suicide after he faced in-school bullying, Sen. Franken said the recent spate of suicides of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) students underscores the importance of quickly passing the ...

Klobuchar, Franken press for ANWR protection

Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar pressed the Obama administration last week to grant the “strongest possible protections” to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in a letter signed by 25 senators. The letter suggests that oil drilling should not occur in the wilderness area. “As we approach the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on Dec. 6, 2010, we ask that you grant the Arctic Refuge the strongest possible protections,” the senators said in their letter. “Many Inupiat people across the North Slope have voiced ...

Al Franken Calls the Anti-Trust Cops on Comcast

Comcast executives may think that they made all the right contributions, lobbied all the right players and greased all the right wheels to get control of NBC. But the controversial merger has yet to be approved. So when Comcast announced a new management team for NBC Universal, it sure looked to Minnesota Senator Al Franken as if the cable company was making an illegal attempt to exert control over its takeover target before regulators had completed a required antitrust review. Franken, who (with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders) has emerged as the Senate's steadziest watchdog with ...

He didn’t answer my question, which should have probably been that he would recuse himself, but then he pivoted and said that he as […] The post MSNBC: Senator Franken: Sessions should recuse himself appeared first on U.S. Senator Al Franken, Minnesota -- Official Campaign Website.

Medicare For All
Like Paul Wellstone, my friend and mentor, Al believes every person in this country deserves care. That’s why he’s supporting Senator Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for All” plan. It sets down an important marker. This is where we need to go as a nation. In the meantime, we need to take concrete steps in the direction […] The post Medicare For All appeared first on U.S. Senator Al Franken, Minnesota -- Official Campaign Website.
Reject the Budget
President Trump has released his budget for the year. It cuts off funding for vital programs like helping seniors pay their heating bills in the winter and combatting climate change and leaves Minnesota families to suffer the consequences. We cannot allow this budget to move forward. Sign the petition to reject Trump’s budget. The post Reject the Budget appeared first on U.S. Senator Al Franken, Minnesota -- Official Campaign Website.
