Tammy Duckworth said : “Black communities have long celebrated the importance of today – the day that, finally, marked the end of centuries of enslavement of Black Americans and their families,” “But as allies, today is not only about learning and recognizing the history of our country, but it is also a call to action for us all to keep pushing, prodding and dragging our nation until we’re all not just created equal, but treated equally as well. For me, this means working to pass the Justice in Policing Act , bringing long-overdue reforms to our country’s police departments. It means protecting and strengthening voting rights. It means finding ways to reduce our rising maternal and infant mortality rate – which disproportionally affects Black moms. I hope all allies in these efforts use today to reflect on our privilege and to think of the ways we can work together to support our Black family, friends and neighbors” External link

Tammy Duckworth said : “Whether responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters and civil unrest, or seamlessly integrating with the Joint Force in overseas operations, the National Guard and Reserve Component forces continue to answer the call and fulfill a critical slate of missions for the Joint Force and the nation,” “Yet, despite serving in critical capacities and dangerous duty assignments, our National Guard and Reserve forces are not receiving the same pay and benefits as their active-duty counterparts.

Unfortunately, far too many of our men and women in uniform do not trust they’ll get the justice they deserve if they pursue it through the current system. As a former commander of an assault helicopter company, it’s become clear to me that we need to pass meaningful reforms to hold more perpetrators accountable and ensure survivors have the resources and support they need to heal and be able to resume the careers they dreamt about from the time they entered the military. I’m proud to join Senators Gillibrand and Ernst in introducing this bipartisan bill, which would help deliver justice to survivors-without sacrificing military commanders’ abilities to maintain discipline within their unit at home or while deployed-while also helping to prevent these despicable crimes from occurring in the first place.” External link

Tammy Duckworth said : "remember this moment”. The water bill is the kind of routine legislation that has been a mainstay on Capitol Hill, but that lawmakers have struggled to pass in recent years amid the partisanship and gridlock, and the power that party leaders exert over the legislative process. Part of the exuberance among senators this week was over the very act of legislating, carrying the bill through the give-and-take of the committee process and onto the Senate floor for amendments and debate. “I say, the more of these we can do, the better,” said Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va. “Maybe we can take the Biden infrastructure plan and do the pieces of it,” he said. “Where we can get some agreement, do those together. And then the remaining things that we think need to be done, that price tag shrinks a little bit, because we’ve done some other stuff”. One reason the water bill easily passed was because it’s routine government spending. Another reason is that the price tag was tiny compared to typical congressional budget spats. Few expect such harmony to last when the stakes get bigger in the months ahead. Biden’s infrastructure plan proposes a tax hike on corporations, reverting the rate from 21% to 28%, as it was before the 2017 GOP tax cuts. That is a nonstarter for Republicans, who are unwilling to undo the signature Trump-era achievement. Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, a member of GOP leadership, said the water bill could certainly become part of a bigger infrastructure package, “one of the building blocks going forward”. But he cautioned, “It’s apples and oranges compared to the President’s infrastructure bill”. The increased spending called for in the water bill goes to two longstanding programs that work like infrastructure banks one for drinking water and the other for wastewater. Each program is set to get up to $14.65 billion over five years under the bill. It is expected to be paid for with routine government funding. Supported by a broad range of interest groups, the bill enables water and wastewater systems around the to country use the money to fix leaky pipes, construct storage tanks and improve water treatment plants, to name just a few uses. The bill also includes an array of grant programs, including to reduce lead in drinking water, turn waste to energy and make water systems more resilient to flooding and other extreme weather events. More than 40% of the bill’s investments are targeted to low-income and rural communities. The bill’s chief sponsor, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., said she remembers a House hearing a few years ago, when a mother from Flint, Mich., held up a baby bottle filled with murky brown water from her tap. “While Flint was a tragedy, it was not an anomaly,” she said. Lead-service water lines were banned decades ago, but more than 6 million homes across the country get water from lead service lines, including Illinois. “We can’t only pour money into fixing our roads while failing to repair the pipes beneath them," External link

Tammy Duckworth said : “Black communities have long celebrated the importance of today – the day that, finally, marked the end of centuries of enslavement of Black Americans and their families,” “But as allies, today is not only about learning and recognizing the history of our country, but it is also a call to action for us all to keep pushing, prodding and dragging our nation until we’re all not just created equal, but treated equally as well. For me, this means working to pass the Justice in Policing Act , bringing long-overdue reforms to our country’s police departments. It means protecting and strengthening voting rights. It means finding ways to reduce our rising maternal and infant mortality rate – which disproportionally affects Black moms. I hope all allies in these efforts use today to reflect on our privilege and to think of the ways we can work together to support our Black family, friends and neighbors” External link

Tammy Duckworth said : "remember this moment”. The water bill is the kind of routine legislation that has been a mainstay on Capitol Hill, but that lawmakers have struggled to pass in recent years amid the partisanship and gridlock, and the power that party leaders exert over the legislative process. Part of the exuberance among senators this week was over the very act of legislating, carrying the bill through the give-and-take of the committee process and onto the Senate floor for amendments and debate. “I say, the more of these we can do, the better,” said Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va. “Maybe we can take the Biden infrastructure plan and do the pieces of it,” he said. “Where we can get some agreement, do those together. And then the remaining things that we think need to be done, that price tag shrinks a little bit, because we’ve done some other stuff”. One reason the water bill easily passed was because it’s routine government spending. Another reason is that the price tag was tiny compared to typical congressional budget spats. Few expect such harmony to last when the stakes get bigger in the months ahead. Biden’s infrastructure plan proposes a tax hike on corporations, reverting the rate from 21% to 28%, as it was before the 2017 GOP tax cuts. That is a nonstarter for Republicans, who are unwilling to undo the signature Trump-era achievement. Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, a member of GOP leadership, said the water bill could certainly become part of a bigger infrastructure package, “one of the building blocks going forward”. But he cautioned, “It’s apples and oranges compared to the President’s infrastructure bill”. The increased spending called for in the water bill goes to two longstanding programs that work like infrastructure banks one for drinking water and the other for wastewater. Each program is set to get up to $14.65 billion over five years under the bill. It is expected to be paid for with routine government funding. Supported by a broad range of interest groups, the bill enables water and wastewater systems around the to country use the money to fix leaky pipes, construct storage tanks and improve water treatment plants, to name just a few uses. The bill also includes an array of grant programs, including to reduce lead in drinking water, turn waste to energy and make water systems more resilient to flooding and other extreme weather events. More than 40% of the bill’s investments are targeted to low-income and rural communities. The bill’s chief sponsor, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., said she remembers a House hearing a few years ago, when a mother from Flint, Mich., held up a baby bottle filled with murky brown water from her tap. “While Flint was a tragedy, it was not an anomaly,” she said. Lead-service water lines were banned decades ago, but more than 6 million homes across the country get water from lead service lines, including Illinois. “We can’t only pour money into fixing our roads while failing to repair the pipes beneath them," External link
