Better reporting might sound basic, but it’s absolutely fundamental to understanding and addressing the full scope of the problem,” “I’m proud of the bipartisan coalition we’ve built in Congress to advance the Jabara-Heyer NO HATE Act and grateful for the backing of so many leading advocacy and law enforcement organizations.

Without a license, people can’t get to work—and pay what’s owed—not to mention get kids to school, or get needed health care, and much more. Suspending driver’s licenses for offenses that have nothing to do with public safety, like missed child support payments or unpaid court fines, is counterproductive and traps the poorest Americans in a cycle of debt,” “This issue disproportionately affects communities of color and can significantly strain relationships with law enforcement.

I am constantly awed by the strength, stealth, and versatility of the submarines they make. I will continue to urge the Navy to complete our goal of building a total of 11 Virginia-class submarines, as Electric Boat is more than up to the task of building the boats America needs to defend itself,” External link

Richard Blumenthal said : "And as a student and creature of the Senate, he certainly knows how to choose his words carefully on this subject. There are some who are skeptical of any change of the rules. We have to demonstrate to them how the rules can be used and abused before we go any further”. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) remain the most prominent backers of keeping the 60-vote requirement, saying so publicly and telling their colleagues they won’t be pressured into changing their positions. However, Manchin has said that while he wants to keep the 60-vote requirement for most legislation, he’s open to listening to reformers and those who want to make a filibuster more painful for the minority party. In some ways, Biden offered Manchin's pitch on Tuesday: Make senators put the work in if they want to slow down bills. The president's allies on Capitol Hill were careful to not overreact and conclude that Biden had moved closer to supporting a simple majority ruling the day in the Senate. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said he didn’t want to interpret Biden’s comments beyond his “actual words,” which did not support eliminating the minority party's ability to block bills. Senators currently can deploy a talking filibuster to seize the floor and delay bills, but ultimately most legislation still requires 60 votes to advance even once those senators are exhausted. Sen. Richard Blumenthal speaks during a committee hearing. | Jemal Countess/Getty Images. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who wants to move all legislation to a simple majority vote in the Senate, said that even Biden's unclear endorsement status amounted to a win for those agitating to change the rules. “President Biden’s remarks are a major shift that can be a catalyst for change," External link

Without a license, people can’t get to work—and pay what’s owed—not to mention get kids to school, or get needed health care, and much more. Suspending driver’s licenses for offenses that have nothing to do with public safety, like missed child support payments or unpaid court fines, is counterproductive and traps the poorest Americans in a cycle of debt,” “This issue disproportionately affects communities of color and can significantly strain relationships with law enforcement. I’m glad to join a bipartisan group of colleagues to right this wrong” External link

Richard Blumenthal said : "And as a student and creature of the Senate, he certainly knows how to choose his words carefully on this subject. There are some who are skeptical of any change of the rules. We have to demonstrate to them how the rules can be used and abused before we go any further”. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) remain the most prominent backers of keeping the 60-vote requirement, saying so publicly and telling their colleagues they won’t be pressured into changing their positions. However, Manchin has said that while he wants to keep the 60-vote requirement for most legislation, he’s open to listening to reformers and those who want to make a filibuster more painful for the minority party. In some ways, Biden offered Manchin's pitch on Tuesday: Make senators put the work in if they want to slow down bills. The president's allies on Capitol Hill were careful to not overreact and conclude that Biden had moved closer to supporting a simple majority ruling the day in the Senate. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said he didn’t want to interpret Biden’s comments beyond his “actual words,” which did not support eliminating the minority party's ability to block bills. Senators currently can deploy a talking filibuster to seize the floor and delay bills, but ultimately most legislation still requires 60 votes to advance even once those senators are exhausted. Sen. Richard Blumenthal speaks during a committee hearing. | Jemal Countess/Getty Images. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who wants to move all legislation to a simple majority vote in the Senate, said that even Biden's unclear endorsement status amounted to a win for those agitating to change the rules. “President Biden’s remarks are a major shift that can be a catalyst for change," External link
