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, Kennedy Hearing Aid Bill Passes House
WASHINGTON – Reps. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and Joe Kennedy III, D-Mass., on Wednesday applauded the passage of their bipartisan Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act in the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation would make certain types of hearing aids available over-the-counter to Americans with mild to moderate hearing loss. In addition, the legislation would require the FDA to write regulations ensuring that this new category of OTC hearing aids meets the same high standards for safety, consumer labeling and manufacturing protections as medical devices, providing consumers the option of an FDA-regulated device at lower cost. "This legislation is the first step to ensuring that millions of Americans can finally have access to affordable hearing aids," said 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 he
Blackburn on Passage of 2018 Defense Authorization Bill
WASHINGTON—Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., on Friday issued the following statement upon the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018 in the U.S. House of Representatives: “We have a profound obligation to provide for the common defense. It is our job to ensure those who selflessly serve have the tools and resources they need to keep Americans safe. For those soldiers and their families at Fort Campbell, this bill is a big win, helping relieve shortfalls in personnel, funding, and resources that have strained operations and morale for some time. I am pleased to see this bill pass and hopeful the Senate will take quick action on it.” RELATED: Blackburn’s column on NDAA impact for soldiers, families at Ft. Campbell
Above the Noise
This week’s inappropriate and pointless tweets from the President are a stark example of just what has gone wrong in our political discourse today. Robust yet civil debate over policy disagreements have taken a back seat to thin-skin and knee-jerk reactions to hyper-partisan comments and, unfortunately, unfounded character attacks. On the day Rep. Steve Scalise and others were shot, seemingly for nothing other than being Republican, not only were we reminded of the consequences of a collapse in civil discourse, but many, including me, renewed our commitment to unity and called for a return to the respectful and civil disagreements that have shaped debate and the political landscape since the birth of our great nation. Our nation and the cause of freedom have been well served by robust and spirited debate. In this era of 24/7 worldwide news, the President of the United States represents each and every one of us on the world stage. Globally, the President is America, and in th
A win for Fort Campbell, military families, national defense.
   With things like increasing funding to counter Russian aggression and activities, prohibiting the transfer of dangerous terrorists out of Guantanamo, and boosting our cyber defenses, this year’s defense authorization bill is a win for our military, their families, and the security of all Americans. In my district, the men and women at Fort Campbell will be happy to hear that this bill provides for a full pay raise under the law and blocks the President’s ability to lower troop pay. It also begins to restore the readiness issues our military has been facing like the extreme shortfall in manning and maintenance the Screaming Eagles of the 101st described to Fox news earlier this year. This bill increases the size of the Army by 17,000 soldiers across the active, guard, and reserve spectrum, allowing units like the 101st to fill critical personnel voids.
