Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), the first Jewish congressman ever elected in Tennessee, will be running in a fundamentally new 9th Congressional District this year without a strong base of support from the Jewish community in Memphis.

Cohen Highlights Lottery’s Benefits for Students as $1 Million Powerball Ticket Sold in Memphis
[MEMPHIS, TN] – Following today’s reports of a $1 million winning Powerball ticket being sold in Memphis, Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), a strong advocate for making college affordable and the father of the Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship program, emphasized the benefits provided by the Lottery for Tennessee’s students. The Congressman fought for many years as a Tennessee State Senator to overcome stiff opposition for a referendum on the Lottery and, subsequently, to pass legislation to create the Lottery Scholarship program, which has provided more than $3 billion in scholarships to the state’s students since 2004. “I am very happy for the prize winner and even happier to know that this is also good news for students across Tennessee,” said Congressman Cohen. “I am proud of my decades of work as a State Senator to create the Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship program, which has provided more than $3 billion to help Tennessee’s young adults attend coll
Cohen Statement on Attorney General Holder’s Resignation
[MEMPHIS, TN] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, released the following statement regarding the resignation of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder: “Eric Holder served our nation well as the United States Attorney General. I enjoyed working closely with him on several issues of justice, and I commend him for his herculean efforts to strengthen and protect voting rights and civil rights, as well as for his work on many other important justice issues including reforming our nation’s outdated drug laws.” “One of the issues that I spoke with Attorney General Holder about, both in Committee and in person, was commutations for those who are serving prison sentences that are in excess of the current sentencing guidelines. In his remaining time at the Justice Department, I hope the Attorney General encourages President Obama to expand the use of commutations which are just based on the Fair Senten
Bringing New Small Businesses Development Initiatives to Memphis
Dear Friend, This week, Congress is not in session—and won’t be back until November 12th—because House Republican leadership and their Do Nothing Caucus chose to recess earlier than the House has recessed before an election since the 1960s. We should be working to pass the Democrats’ Jumpstart agenda to create transportation and infrastructure jobs, raise the minimum wage, provide equal pay for equal work, restore the full protections of the Voting Rights Act, help our students afford college, and renew unemployment insurance, but Republicans just wanted to go home instead of getting real work done for our country.

Cohen Announces Nearly $50,000 to Help Reduce Veteran Homelessness In Memphis
[MEMPHIS, TN] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today announced that the Memphis Housing Authority has been awarded $48,322 in federal funding to provide tenant-based vouchers that will enable homeless veterans and their families to access affordable existing housing of their choice. This funding, which will also allow veterans to receive an array of supporting services, comes through the Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program. “It is a tragedy that any of our veterans in Memphis and throughout the country are homeless,” said Congressman Cohen. “These vouchers are just one way we can give back to the veterans who gave so much for us and a step toward the goal of having no homeless veterans in America.” As a critical part of the Obama Administration’s commitment to end veteran and long-term chronic homelessness in 2015, the HUD-VASH Program combines rental assistance from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) wi
