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 Reacts to Obama Actions Trampling on 2nd Amendment Rights
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement in response to the executive actions announced by President Obama that would restrict 2nd Amendment rights for law-abiding Americans.   “This is another public relations stunt from President Obama that is only aimed at satisfying his desire to go down in history as a liberal icon. These executive actions represent another assault on the Constitution by this President,” Blackburn said. “Instead of trampling on the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans, President Obama should be focused on coming up with a strategy to deal with the biggest threat facing our nation right now – the terrorist threat posed by radical Islamic extremists.   “Despite already having his executive amnesty ruled unconstitutional by two courts, this President continues to treat the law as a suggestion. The American people won’t stand for it. Congress has previously debated and rejected the left’s gun control
Blackburn: Obamacare is Hurting People and Congress has Responded
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today issued the following statement after House passage of the Senate amendment to H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act. This legislation is the first broad repeal of Obamacare that will be sent to the president’s desk and includes a one year moratorium on federal funds for the country’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. That money will be rerouted to community health centers to provide  health services for women.     “’If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it’ was awarded the dubious distinction of ‘Lie of the Year’ in 2013. The deception has become obvious. Seven million people have lost their employer sponsored coverage. Over $700 billion has been raided from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. The exchanges, where people shop for Obamacare, are on life support with at least one insurance company saying they should never have participated and threatening to pu
Blackburn Continues Fight to Ensure Women’s Access to Cancer Screenings
Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) released the following statement in response to today’s recommendations by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) that would raise the recommended age for the start of routine mammograms from 40 to 50. “Today, the US Prevention Services Task Force (USPSTF) turned its back on healthcare for women when they finalized breast screening guidelines that would limit access to mammograms for 22 million women between the ages of 40 and 49. The guidelines would have blocked access to care to women who may be at greatest risk of breast cancer and who are not aware that they are at risk. As our nation moves to precision medical care, the denial of life-saving screening is exactly the wrong direction. Fortunately, in December, Congress enacted a provision based on a bipartisan bill, H.R. 3339, that I sponsored with Representatives Ellmers (R-NC) and Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), that places a two-year hold on these finalized recommendations.

2015: A Year in Review
Friends-   Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and your 2016 is off to a great start! The year upon us promises to be an exciting one and I’m looking forward to leading the fight for reduced government spending, protecting our most vulnerable, and ensuring American families are safe.   Before we look ahead, I want to take a few minutes and celebrate what we accomplished in 2015. We fought and had many successes in the battle for faith, family, freedom, hope, and opportunity. I’m not giving up that fight in the new year and hope to look back at 2016 with many more successes for the Conservative cause.   Fought for Tennessee taxpayers. This year I achieved permanent tax relief for Tennessee families. Language in this year’s tax extenders bill made permanent the ability of Tennesseans to deduct their state and local sales tax from their federal income tax. I, along with Congressman Kevin Brady, have been leading the fight in the House on the
