Forging new partnerships between our friends in the Middle East is critical to countering the region’s malign actors such as Iran and is in the best interest of U.S. national security.
The normalization of relations between the UAE and Israel will advance commerce, encourage travel between the two countries, and establish diplomatic ties – and help encourage mutual economic, diplomatic, and security goals.
I applaud the President and the administration’s hard-won efforts in facilitating these historic peace agreements with both the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain which advance the cause of peace and prosperity in the region.

While the Senate should act swiftly on the House relief bill, we also need to work urgently on additional #COVID19 response measures to help families and small businesses. My proposals: romney.senate.gov/romney-calls-u…
Every American adult should immediately receive a one-time check for $1,000 to help ensure families and workers can meet their short-term obligations and increase spending in the economy.
Provide bridge grants from @SBAgov to qualified small businesses, helping them cover payroll and rent without forcing them into future bankruptcies.

.@SenMikeLee and I are seeking additional information from the @StateDept and @DHSgov regarding specific guidance for Utahns and family members of Utahns who are currently abroad and wish to return to the U.S. In the interim, our offices recommend: romney.senate.gov/romney-lee-off…
All Americans abroad should register with the @StateDept’s STEP Program. Enrolling with the local U.S. Embassy/consulate will help government officials communicate important information on travel to the U.S. and other safety updates: step.state.gov/STEPMobile/Def…

I voted for today’s funding bills—while far from perfect—because they contained legislation I fought for that reduces youth vaping, supports Utah’s @HAFB, repeals harmful Obamacare taxes, and protects rural Utah communities.
@HAFB Important to our national security:
✔️ Funds nearly 100 F-35s (maintained & repaired at Utah’s @HAFB)
✔️ Modernizes our missile defense system
✔️ Reauthorizes our E-Verify program
Raising the tobacco age to 21 helps protect kids from addiction. Today’s funding bills also:
✔️ Permanently repeals the medical device tax
✔️ Lowers health care costs for millions of Americans
✔️ Orders @US_FDA review of vaping cartridges to ensure they’re tamper proof

The 2020 #NDAA provides for our national defense & gives critical policy guidance to the Pentagon. I have introduced amendments to this year’s defense bill to require the U.S. to develop a strategy to address the rise of China, and ones that will benefit my home state of Utah. Image
One of the most critical threats our nation faces is from China. My #NDAA amendments aim to address cybersecurity threats to U.S. weapons systems and intellectual property theft by Chinese companies & require partnerships with our allies to confront growing Chinese aggression.
Last month, a record number of 144,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended at our southern border. Congress needs to act now to address this crisis. That’s why I’ve introduced a #NDAA amendment to make the E-Verify program permanent.

It’s unfortunate that today’s spending bill, which was initially aimed at aiding Americans affected by natural disasters, has been loaded up with billions of dollars in unrelated pet projects—growing to over $19 billion in just the past few weeks.
I promised the people of Utah that I would not be a rubber stamp for wasteful spending bills that drive up our already sky-rocketing national debt, and I cannot in good conscience support it.
Instead of rushing through billion-dollar spending bills at the eleventh hour without sufficient debate, Congress must start budgeting for natural disasters. That’s why I introduced a bill this week that would require disaster spending to be built into the annual budget process.

May 10 marks the 150th anniversary of the #GoldenSpike—a ceremony commemorating the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in Promontory Summit of the Utah Territory. Throughout the week, I’ll be sharing #Spike150 trivia.
The completion of the Transcontinental Railroad helped unite our nation—culturally, geographically, and economically. It’s a testament to our enduring spirit of ingenuity and industry. #Spike150
Today’s #Spike150 trivia: Union Pacific’s 119 and Central Pacific’s Jupiter steam locomotives were staged face-to-face for the driving of the Golden Spike. ImageImage
