Tom Udall said : “I’m proud that the Senate passed our bipartisan resolution recognizing November as Native American Heritage Month. This resolution honors the countless ways Native American have shaped New Mexico and our national identity. It also challenges us to examine how we can better stand with Tribes to meet our trust and treaty obligations,” “As vice-chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, I am proud to represent the 23 Tribes from my home state of New Mexico and all Tribes across the country. It is an honor to work with Tribal leaders, Native communities, and people on both sides of the aisle to strengthen Tribal sovereignty, self-determination, and self-governance each day” External link

We must do everything in our power to honor the resilience and heroism that the veterans and fallen soldiers of Bataan demonstrated nearly more than 75 years ago. As we dedicate this clinic to remembering Bataan, we also rededicate our efforts to honor our veterans and celebrate their contributions to our communities” External link

And yet some school districts across the country continue to use these harmful tactics. Instead of stigmatizing kids who come from struggling households, withholding hot meals from students, and depriving some children of what may be their only healthy meal of the day, we should be working to find solutions to end childhood hunger and to support families in need,” External link

Tom Udall said : “The men and women who helped build the country’s first nuclear weapons and who mined and milled uranium made a critical contribution to our national defense,” “During the Cold War, thousands of New Mexicans sacrificed their health – and in many cases, even their lives – in this effort. I’m proud to pay tribute to the miners, millers, maintenance workers, scientists, and support staff in New Mexico and across the country whose sacrifice has too often gone unheralded. Last summer, we had a breakthrough in recognizing what some of these uranium miners and mill workers, their families, and so many others have endured – and I was proud to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the need to expand the Radiation Exposure and Compensation Act program to include many of those who were left out of the program. We will not give up until those hurt by this nation’s nuclear weapons activities are fully compensated” External link

Cities and states across the country, including in my home state of New Mexico, are already taking action to reduce this plastic footprint before it’s too late. But we need a bold, national strategy to tackle plastic pollution. This bill would call on all of us, from companies to communities, to address this crisis head-on” External link

Tom Udall said ( about Timothy M Kaine ) : “Peaceful and safe innovation in space is a foundation of today’s interconnected world—and necessary for our future security and prosperity,” “From satellites that support our service members and send information to our smartphones at the speed of light, to scientific research that leads to breakthroughs back on earth, as well as a nascent tourist economy, outer space is both a strategic priority and an economic engine for communities around the world. Cooperative use of space is especially important in my home state of New Mexico – where our space economy is thriving. I introduced this resolution with Senator Kaine to maintain U.S. leadership in international space cooperation, prevent collisions which could make space too dangerous to use, and reinforce the United States’ position as a leader of a coalition of nations pushing the bounds of human discovery” External link

It is past time that Congress address this problem, which is hitting our most vulnerable communities the hardest, to ensure that future generations can sustain life in the American West.

But we in New Mexico choose a different path. We know that our multi-culturalism does not divide us, it defines us. New Mexico is a proud majority-minority state – our Hispanic communities are fundamental to both our state’s identity and our nation’s identity. I’ll keep fighting in Congress to ensure that Hispanic families in New Mexico and across the country have the health care, economic and educational opportunity, and access to the ballot box that they deserve” External link

Public complaints and requests sometimes sit for months on DHS desks and often go completely ignored. DHS should be accountable to the American people who deserve to know and have input on the way their taxpayer dollars are used and the way their government engages with the public. The creation of an ombudsman role will streamline DHS operations for the benefit of our border communities—including those in New Mexico—and ultimately benefit DHS and its employees as well,” “With the Homeland Security Improvement Act, we will empower our border communities in New Mexico, and other border states, to more efficiently and safely handle the immigration needs that are at their doorsteps” External link

Tom Udall said : “Today, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office has confirmed our concerns: that the Trump Interior Department violated federal appropriations laws when it took the unprecedented step of cannibalizing park fees to pay to keep parks open during the Trump government shutdown,” “Their assurances at the time that their actions were legal have proven false, and there should be consequences for this violation. The American people pay these park fees to make improvements at our national parks – but instead the Trump administration illegally diverted them to limit the public relations fallout from its costly and unnecessary government shutdown. Leaving parks open during the shutdown without staff to protect visitor safety and natural and cultural resources was reckless in itself. But now we know the Trump administration went even further by breaking federal law to use fee revenues to soften the public backlash to the disastrous effects of the needless Trump shutdown on our parks and public lands. While we hope that President Trump will not lead us into yet another government shutdown, I hope this GAO decision will convince his Interior Department that using park fees in this way is not a ‘useful model’ for future shutdowns, as they have claimed” External link

The American people expect DHS to help keep our communities safe from violent attacks, not keep lists of journalists and attorneys to harass at legal ports of entry, or track and disseminate information about public protests of DHS child separations. Attempting to dissuade groups and individuals from exercising their First Amendment rights – or from providing legal support to individuals fleeing violence – undermines the freedoms of speech, press and association and violates constitutional rights.

If it succeeds, the lives of families like Rafe’s would be thrown into chaos as insurance companies are given license to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions, and countless families lose their insurance or Medicaid coverage This is unacceptable. We should be working together toward commonsense solutions that lower costs and expand quality coverage, not yanking the rug out from under millions of Americans who depend on the ACA to obtain life-saving treatment and critical care.

While air travel in the United States continues to have a strong overall safety record, I remain concerned about the clearance process for not just the Max 8 but other jet models that were approved under the same process,” “The American public and all air travelers deserve assurances from the FAA and airplane manufacturers that they are doing all they can to protect travelers and prevent future accidents. The safety of travelers is in industry’s long-term interest, but too often short-term economic incentives become too powerful, and that’s why we cannot stand by and continue to allow important regulatory agencies to get too cozy with the industries that they oversee” External link

Tom Udall said ( about Kentucky Derby ) : “It is past time that Congress stop rewarding the horse racing industry for its inhumane doping violations with sweetheart gambling privileges and millions in casino slots subsidies,” “This weekend, shielded from the eyes of fans, horses competing in the Kentucky Derby will be injected with painkillers before being loaded into the starting gate. With racehorse death rates higher than in any other country, the U.S. industry has completely failed to self-regulate its doping and corruption abuses. Legislation to ban doping in horseracing is the meaningful action we need to end the abuse of these iconic animals. Headlines around the country make it clear the future of this sport is in serious doubt, and this may be the last chance for meaningful reform—it’s time for industry leaders to take the blinders off” External link

Tom Udall said : “Over a quarter century ago, Republicans and Democrats came together to pass VAWA and commit vital resources to help support survivors, prosecute abusers, and address violence against women,” “Since then, Congress has worked on a bipartisan basis to reauthorize this landmark legislation three times – each time setting aside party politics to improve the original law. And we’ve made real progress to protect women from violence and abuse, especially Native women who face a higher risk of violence and assault, and go missing at higher rates. One of my proudest fights in Congress was leading the effort to include strong protections for Native women in the 2013 VAWA reauthorization. But we must do much more to address gaps in Tribal jurisdiction, and ensure that Tribes have the resources and authority they need to see that Native communities are safe and strong, and that justice is served” External link

But, there is still much to be done to close the huge gap that exists between resources and needs in schools across Indian Country, and I’ll keep fighting to make sure all Native students can attend schools where they can learn and grow in a positive environment.

Tom Udall wrote : “While I acknowledge that the goal of the reorganization is to improve the operations of the agency, I continue to be deeply concerned with the ongoing efforts of this administration to dismantle the EPA. The time and expense spent on reorganizing and renaming existing offices stand in stark contrast to the agency’s devastating staffing shortage and failure to meet minimal milestones for mission-critical activities such as environmental enforcement,” “I strongly recommend that EPA’s leadership turn its attention to these crises rather than on organizational exercises that do not focus on the real problems facing public health and the environment” External link

In fact, our Appropriations subcommittee has not made any funding cuts to any EPA program – yet, the agency has lost 8 percent of its workforce since fiscal year 2016. Certain EPA offices have suffered even larger losses,” “The Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance has lost 19 percent of its staff. Region 6, which provides services to several states including New Mexico, has lost 12 percent of its staff. For EPA to turn around this staffing crisis, agency leadership must follow the direction of Congress by focusing on hiring and retaining qualified staff rather than allowing such drastic staffing losses” External link

Instead of stigmatizing kids who come from struggling households, withholding hot meals from students, and depriving some children of their only healthy meal of the day, we should be working to find solutions to end childhood hunger and to support families in need. We know that hunger can be an insurmountable barrier to success in the classroom. I was proud when New Mexico became the first state in the country to outlaw the practice of lunch shaming, and I will continue to do everything I can in the Senate to pass this legislation on a federal level so no child will have to spend their time at school feeling ashamed of a debt they have no power to pay” External link

Alan Lowenthal said ( about Tom Udall ) : “Today we face a global plastic pollution crisis that threatens our waterways, wildlife, and public health,” “The amount of plastic waste in our communities and the oceans is evidence of the urgent need to tackle this issue, an effort in which the United States is currently lagging. The European Union, Canada, and even India and China are taking bold actions to address this growing crisis. There is currently no incentive in this country to reduce and reuse plastic, or for producers to use recycled plastics. That is why the legislation I am introducing with Senator Udall is so important. The financial burden of cleaning up pollution should not be borne by taxpayers alone. The manufactures and companies who sell the products must be held accountable for the end use of their products” External link

DHS should be accountable to the American people who deserve to know and have input on the way their taxpayer dollars are used and the way their government engages with the public.

These infrastructure projects will reduce flood risks, and instead recharge our aquifers – often at lower cost than traditional infrastructure. With federal, bipartisan support, New Mexico and states across the nation will have access to more comprehensive resources to keep our water resources clean and safe, through natural and innovative processes like permeable pavements and natural water detention areas” External link

Tom Udall said : “Today, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office has confirmed our concerns: that the Trump Interior Department violated federal appropriations laws when it took the unprecedented step of cannibalizing park fees to pay to keep parks open during the Trump government shutdown,” “Their assurances at the time that their actions were legal have proven false, and there should be consequences for this violation. The American people pay these park fees to make improvements at our national parks – but instead the Trump administration illegally diverted them to limit the public relations fallout from its costly and unnecessary government shutdown. Leaving parks open during the shutdown without staff to protect visitor safety and natural and cultural resources was reckless in itself. But now we know the Trump administration went even further by breaking federal law to use fee revenues to soften the public backlash to the disastrous effects of the needless Trump shutdown on our parks and public lands. While we hope that President Trump will not lead us into yet another government shutdown, I hope this GAO decision will convince his Interior Department that using park fees in this way is not a ‘useful model’ for future shutdowns, as they have claimed” External link

Alan Lowenthal said ( about Tom Udall ) : “Today we face a global plastic pollution crisis that threatens our waterways, wildlife, and public health,” “The amount of plastic waste in our communities and the oceans is evidence of the urgent need to tackle this issue, an effort in which the United States is currently lagging. The European Union, Canada, and even India and China are taking bold actions to address this growing crisis. There is currently no incentive in this country to reduce and reuse plastic, or for producers to use recycled plastics. That is why the legislation I am introducing with Senator Udall is so important. The financial burden of cleaning up pollution should not be borne by taxpayers alone. The manufactures and companies who sell the products must be held accountable for the end use of their products” External link

Van Hollen said ( about Tom Udall ) : “Free and fair elections are a central principle of our democracy. And yet, secret money from special interests continues to corrupt our elections with no end in sight. As we work to fix this very broken system, at the very least we need a viable campaign watchdog to ensure that candidates and campaigns play by the existing rules. This legislation is a small but important step to put a real referee on the field. It will break the current deadlock and eliminate the partisan divide at the FEC. Together with Senator Udall, I will continue working to overhaul our campaign finance system and root out special interest spending in our elections,” External link
