Rep. Blackburn urges incandescent bulbs as gifts


Tennessee U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn says her family's holiday will be bright. She's filling Christmas stockings with light bulbs. Incandescent, of course. The Brentwood Republican has backed a provision to cut funding for an energy efficiency law scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, effectively ending the manufacture of incandescent light bulbs. The statute requires new bulbs of 100 watts be 27 times more energy efficient. A statement provided to The Tennessean by a Blackburn staffer said the old pear-shaped incandescent bulbs are "scheduled to go away at the end of the ...


Free markets should decide spectrum auction outcomes


America’s tech sector remains unrivaled around the world — a true bright spot in our otherwise stagnant economy. That’s the message I took away from the Consumer Electronics Show last week, where I met some of America’s best and brightest tech leaders and innovators. For this sector to drive U.S.-based prosperity, Congress must pass spectrum reform legislation to end the FCC’s decades-long mismanagement of this vital resource. In short, mobile users need more spectrum. As Nobel Prize-winning economist Ronald Coase first demonstrated more than 50 years ago, the ...


Rep. Marsha Blackburn's 7th Congr.District to leave Shelby


U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn's 7th Congressional District -- which includes Germantown and much of Collierville and Bartlett -- would move out of Shelby and Fayette counties under proposed new redistricting plans released Friday by the Tennessee legislature. In return, the 8th Congressional District now represented by Rep. Stephen Fincher will move much deeper into eastern Shelby County than it currently does, and the Memphis-based 9th Congressional District will extend upward to include the northwestern corner of Shelby County. State House Speaker Beth Harwell said the congressional map ...

Blackburn introduces bill to protect online privacy
WASHINGTON—Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) on Thursday introduced the Balancing the Rights of Web Surfers Equally and Responsibly (BROWSER) Act of 2017 to protect the online privacy of Americans. She was joined by Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) and Bill Flores (R-Texas). Several weeks ago, Blackburn led an effort to repeal the FCC’s privacy rulemaking. “The FCC’s privacy rulemaking had two distinct problems,” Blackburn said. “First, it created confusion by establishing two privacy regulators. The FCC unilaterally swiped jurisdiction from the FTC in a blatant power grab. Second, the FCC focused on only one part of the Internet eco-system and ignored edge provider services that collect as much, if not more data, than ISPs. The government should not pick winners and losers when it comes to the privacy of Americans. This bill creates a level and fair privacy playing field by bringing all entities that collect and sell th
Blackburn-sponsored bill making hearing aids affordable, accessible advances
WASHINGTON – Reps. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.) on Wednesday applauded the bipartisan passage of their Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act in the House Energy & Commerce Committee. The legislation would make certain types of hearing aids available over-the-counter to Americans with mild to moderate hearing loss. "This legislation is the first step to ensuring that millions of Americans can finally have access to affordable hearing aids," said Rep. Marsha Blackburn. “Just as someone can correct minor sight loss by purchasing reading glasses from their local pharmacy, so too should they be able to correct minor hearing loss with an affordable and accessible hearing aid. This is a bipartisan, commonsense solution the people want and need.”   "Access to hearing aids shouldn't be limited by cost and a lack of competition. Recent innovation in hearing aid technology and over-the-counter sales will ensure millions
President Signs Legislation Naming New Nashville Federal Courthouse in Honor of Fred Thompson
WASHINGTON– U.S. Senators Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) along with U.S. Representatives Diane Black (R-Tenn.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.), Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.), John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.), Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.), David Kustoff (R-Tenn.) and Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) today released the following statements after President Trump signed into law bipartisan legislation naming the new Nashville federal courthouse in honor of former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson. Senator Alexander said: “Tennesseans and our country were fortunate that public service attracted Fred Thompson. His personality had a streak of magic – he was authentic, purposeful and principled – and he worked hard. The entire Tennessee delegation agrees it’s very appropriate that the new Nashville courthouse be named for Senator Thompson, and I’m grateful the president signed legislation today to do so. It has given me a great deal of pri
Blackburn Statement on Withdrawal from Paris Climate Agreement
WASHINGTON—Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) issued the following statement on President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement: “I applaud President Trump for his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. Simply put, it is a bad deal that placed political goals above the American people. Americans, American energy, American jobs, and the American economy must come first, and President Trump is staying true to his word to always act in the best interest of the American people and the country.” Blackburn represents Tennessee’s Seventh Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. She serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.   ###
