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 ...

In follow-up to her meeting on Wednesday, October 22, 2014, Blackburn has sent a letter to Department of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel asking for further clarification about the mission.

We have since been gathering information about the deployment. Many of the brave men and women serving our country at Fort Campbell are our friends, family and consti
Reps. Blackburn, Marino, Chu, and Welch Applaud Senate Introduction of Legislation to Combat Prescription Drug Abuse
Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) Tom Marino (R-PA), Judy Chu (D-CA), and Peter Welch (D-VT) issued the following statement applauding Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) for introducing S. 2862, the Regulatory Transparency, Patient Access, and Effective Drug Enforcement Act of 2014. S. 2862 is the companion bill to H.R. 4709, the Ensuring Patient Access to Effective Drug Enforcement Act, which unanimously passed the House in July to help prevent prescription drug abuse and diversion, and ensure patient access to necessary medications by creating a more collaborative partnership between drug manufacturers, wholesalers, retail pharmacies, and federal enforcement and oversight agencies. “I am pleased to see Senators Hatch and Whitehouse following our lead in this effort to combat prescription drug abuse,”Blackburn said. “This legislation will help facilitate greater collaboration between industry stakeholders and regulators in our nation
Blackburn Briefed by CDC Officials
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement today calling for an immediate review of travel protocols to combat the Ebola crisis after her visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, GA. While at the CDC Blackburn met with Director Dr. Tom Frieden and was briefed by subject matter experts on what is being done to protect Americans from the current Ebola crisis. “Today I traveled to the Centers for Disease control in Atlanta and met with Director Tom Frieden. Despite assurances that there is no risk of an Ebola outbreak occurring in the U.S., I remain very concerned. President Obama traveled to the CDC on September 16th and declared that Ebola was “unlikely” to come to America. Two weeks later, the first ever case of this deadly disease was diagnosed on American soil in Dallas as a result of a Liberian national falsifying travel documents in order to come to the United States after knowingly being exposed to Ebola. “Dr.
Blackburn to Visit Southern Border
On Friday, October 24, 2014, Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) will travel to McAllen, Texas, where she will receive a briefing from members of the United States Border Patrol. During her visit to the southern border, Blackburn will also receive a tour of the McAllen Border Patrol Station and the Rio Grande Valley-Centralized Processing Center. “We all know it’s imperative that action is taken to address our nation’s border crisis. That is why I worked tirelessly this summer to pass legislation that would freeze DACA and prevent the President from circumventing Congress and granting blanket amnesty to the thousands of illegal immigrants who flood our nation’s borders each year,” Blackburn said. “The most important step in any effort to stop illegal immigration in this country must be to secure the border. This trip will provide a great opportunity to get a first-hand look at the situation on the southern border, and I am looking forward to hearing directly from our bor
