Cohen’s Statement on the Confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as U.S. Attorney General
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, today released the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted nearly along party lines to confirm Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) as the next Attorney General of the United States: “I am disappointed Jeff Sessions was confirmed by the Senate as the next Attorney General,” said Congressman Cohen. “It is a sad day in American jurisprudence when a man who has not sought to advance voting rights, civil rights or women’s rights nor has sought to advocate for the Bill of Rights, except for the Second and Tenth Amendments, becomes Attorney General of the United States. Furthermore, his positions on criminal justice are repressive and outdated.” Earlier today Congressman Cohen participated in a march with his House colleagues to the floor of the U.S. Senate in protest of the nomination of Senator Sessions as Attorney General.

Cohen Introduces Bill to Put Our Veterans Back to Work
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today introduced the Putting Our Veterans Back to Work Act to help reduce veteran unemployment and train our nation’s heroes for good-paying, high-demand jobs. Congressman Cohen’s legislation would reauthorize the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP), which helps train unemployed veterans for careers in high-demand occupations, through 2020.
