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 presses HHS, DEA on missing report on opioid law
WASHINGTON—Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) on Tuesday sent a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Acting Secretary Eric Hargan and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Acting Administrator Robert Patterson requesting swift completion and delivery to Congress of a report detailing the impact of The Ensuring Patient Access and Effective Drug Enforcement Act, which has been highlighted in recent press reports. By law, the report was to have been completed six months ago. “This missed deadline is unacceptable,” Blackburn said. “We would have been much better served if we had this report six months ago. We could have spent those six months working to fix any unintended consequences of this law. Instead, we have been working without a clear picture of how this law is affecting Americans and how effective it has been in stemming the tide of the opioid crisis in our country.” As the letter states, “The Ensuring Patient Access an
The TAX CUTS & JOBS Act
POLICY HIGHLIGHTS Individuals and Families Lowers individual tax rates for low- and middle-income Americans to Zero, 12%, 25%, and 35% so people can keep more of the money they earn throughout their lives, and continues to maintain 39.6% for high-income Americans. Significantly increases the standard deduction to protect roughly double the amount of what you earn each year from taxes – from $6,350 to $12,000 for individuals and $12,700 to $24,000 for married couples. Eliminates special-interest deductions that increase rates and complicate Americans’ taxes – so an individual or family can file their taxes on a form as simple as a postcard. Takes action to support American families by: Establishing a new Family Credit, which includes expanding the Child Tax Credit from $1,000 to $1,600 to help parents with the cost of raising children, and providing a credit of $300 for each parent and non-child dependent to help all families with the
Blackburn Endorses Bill to Create Opioid Task Force
WASHINGTON—Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) on Thursday co-sponsored a bill, the Fentanyl and Heroin Task Force Act, which would establish a federal task force to address trafficking of the deadly drugs. “Illicit opioids, heroin and fentanyl laced drugs are destroying lives and tearing apart families and communities,” Blackburn said. “The death rates are increasing.My work on the issue began over five years ago and I join with colleagues today in taking another action.We must have these federal agencies work together to stop this epidemic in our country.” The Fentanyl and Heroin Task Force Act establishes a task force made up of law enforcement agencies to eradicate the illicit fentanyl and heroin trade. This legislation works to continue the efforts to bring together federal agencies for comprehensive action against the fentanyl and heroin epidemic. The bill creates an inter-agency task force that will coordinate federal agency efforts t
Blackburn statement on President’s Declaration on Opioid Epidemic
WASHINGTON—Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) issued the following statement after President Trump declared the national opioid epidemic a public health emergency: “Tennesseans are no stranger to the destruction this epidemic wreaks – we cannot afford to sit idly by as it continues. It is critical that we use every weapon available to us to fight this devastating epidemic. The President’s decision to declare this a public health emergency gives states and communities more tools to address the crisis and unleashes government resources to better help those in need of help. There is more to do, but today’s announcement is an important step toward bringing this scourge to an end.” Congressman Blackburn was in attendance at the White House for the President’s announcement today. The President invited a select group of lawmakers who have worked constructively and consistently to address the epidemic.
