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 ...

A Health Care Update from Congressman Blackburn
Earlier today, my colleagues and I voted in favor of the American Health Care Act, which will finally repeal the burdensome Affordable Care Act. Many of you have expressed your concerns about the rising costs that have ensued after 8 years of impractical legislation. That’s why we’ve taken action to get rid of Obamacare.   Here's more on the American Health Care Act and why we passed it: It will dismantle the Obamacare taxes. These taxes have hurt job creators, increased premium costs, and limited options for patients and health care providers—including taxes on prescription drugs, over-the counter medications, health-insurance premiums, and medical devices. It eliminates the individual and employer mandate penalties. These penalties have
A Legacy of Learning
A Legacy of Learning by Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) The excitement I felt each time I put on my green and white uniform, attached my four-leaf clover patch, and grabbed an armful of project books has not escaped me to this day. Many of you reading this may be able to relate to this feeling. Maybe you too filled out your record book, logging the work you put in completing project after project as a proud member of 4-H. My grandmother was a member of “The Tomato Club,” a club formed in 1902 which is considered the birth of 4-H in the United States. My mother was a National Leadership winner and worked out of the Cooperative Extension office in Sebring, Florida while my father was stationed there during World War II. With the legacy that preceded me, there was never a question of whether or not I would be a member of 4-H, but rather what I would do when I became a 4-H member. At fairs and in 4-H competitions, alongside my home-grown tomatoes and beans or the apron or
Blessed are the Peacemakers
Law enforcement officers from coast to coast wake up each day, put on their uniform, and put themselves in harm’s way in order to ensure our friends, neighbors, and communities remain safe and peaceful. They volunteer for this service, because those they protect and serve are their friends and neighbors as well. Theirs is a service of duty and sacrifice. May 14 – 20, 2017 marks National Police Week. National Police Week began in 1962 as a way to honor those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice. Today and every day, we remember those whose didn’t come home and their families who are left with a void.     Since 2016, nine of these selfless heroes have fallen in the line of duty. This week we honor their memory. Blessed are the peacemakers
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
