Murphy Announces RELIEF Act

Congressman Chris Murphy announced that he will introduce the Rebuilding our Economy and Limiting the Impacts of Expected Flooding (RELIEF) Act, legislation that will create a $100 million per year grant program to provide municipal governments with the resources they need to create jobs and address pressing flood mitigation projects. “The terrible damage caused by Hurricane Irene underscored a serious problem we have with chronic flooding in this part of Connecticut,” said Murphy. “The RELIEF Act is designed to allow local governments to get started on flood mitigation ...

Chris Murphy leads Chris Shays in Connecticut Senate race

Former U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays stacks up favorably against two of three potential Democratic opponents, but would lose a close race if he's nominated and faces U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy, a new Public Policy Polling pollsuggests. The former Fairfield County congressman, returning to Connecticut to run for the seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Sen.

Murphy takes the Supreme Court to task on transparency

Congressman Chris Murphy and Keith Olbermann review how to better hold Supreme Court justices accountable for their ethics. Last week, Murphy sent a letter to Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, strongly requesting hearings on HR 862 — the Supreme Court Transparency and Disclosure Act. Murphy calls out Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito for attending political events and using their positions to fundraise for organizations. KEITH OLBERMANN: If you watched Justice Alito mouth criticisms during the State of the Union, or you saw Justice ...

Another loss for the NRA
Last night, another NRA-backed candidate lost a contested congressional election. It's just the latest in a long line of defeats for the National Rifle Association, and their first since losing almost every one of their priority contests in 2012. This is important because as early as this week, the Senate Judiciary Committee is going to begin voting on actual legislation to reduce gun violence in the United States. And for a long time, the perception has been that crossing the gun lobby could lead to electoral problems. Sign my petition letting members of the U.S. Senate know that you'll stand with them if they're attacked by the NRA for casting a vote for universal background checks, limiting magazine capacity, and an assault weapons ban. http://www.chrismurphy.com/nra-losses Things are about to heat up in this debate. I'll be in touch as the timeline for legislation gets a bit more clear. Best, Chris Murphy
Video: Talking about Newtown
After spending four days in Newtown, I returned to Washington, D.C. on Monday to start the conversation about how to make sure tragedies like the one in Newtown never happen again. I spoke on the House floor about the acts of courage that took place in Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday, and the thousands of individual acts of humanity that have happened since then. I wanted to share my speech with you. You can watch it here:
Sometimes issues find you
The following is an email Chris sent to supporters shortly after finishing his Maiden Speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate on Wednesday April 10, 2013. Earlier today, I made my maiden speech on the floor of the United States Senate. When I was elected, I never would have guessed the speech would be about guns or gun violence. I could have never imagined it'd be about 26 dead kids and teachers in our corner of the world. But sometimes issues find you. Despite overwhelming support for change, passing common sense solutions like limiting magazine sizes and banning a small number of assault weapons too dangerous for retail sale appears like it will be an uphill battle. A big reason for that is because Members of Congress have been listening to the wrong people. Congress thinks that the NRA speaks for gun owners, when they really don't any longer. And that's why I ignore people like David Keane, the President of the NRA, who dismiss the effect of the laws we are debating this week.
Behind the Scenes—Middle East Trip
  For those of you who continue to give me good feedback on my "behind the scenes" e-mails about my congressional trips overseas, you have only yourself to blame for this latest edition - overly long as usual. For those of you who are new to these accounts, one of my responsibilities as a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (and specifically, in my new role as top Democrat on the subcommittee on the Middle East and Counter-terrorism) is to travel overseas to represent the United States and conduct fact-finding relevant to important discussions before the committee. I've developed a habit over the years of writing a journal of my trip, both as a means of connecting my constituents to the unvarnished reality of congressional travel and organizing my thoughts upon my return. This trip was especially timely. I was joined by my good friend Senator Gary Peters of Michigan on a whirlwind 5 day tour of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, Iraq, and the Syrian refugee cam
