Jeanne Shaheen said ( about Granite State ) : “The provisions I wrote in this bill will help Granite Staters recover from the far-reaching consequences of the pandemic and become whole again. From responding to the substance use disorder crisis to the scourge of sexual assault – both of which were exacerbated by COVID – to creating jobs and boosting economic development, this bill addresses what I’ve heard from working families across New Hampshire and the nation,” “I’m particularly pleased that the bill delivers the greatest funding ever to Violence Against Women Act programs, as well as substantial funding to help communities and first responders address substance misuse and the climate crisis. But we can’t limit our action to the immediate problems of today – we also need an eye towards the future. That’s why this bill also invests in American competitiveness on the global stage – ensuring our workforce is poised to lead in scientific innovation and space exploration in the years to come. These priorities are all essential to the success of families and communities across New Hampshire and our nation, and I look forward to working with lawmakers and the administration to see this bill signed into law” External link

That’s why, as Chair of this Subcommittee, securing robust funding for the Office on Violence Against Women is always a top priority for me,” “I’m pleased to announce the largest funding levels ever for critical VAWA programs in this government funding legislation. This funding will bolster victims programs like transitional housing, legal assistance and crisis hotlines, as well as strengthen the capacity of law enforcement agencies to hold perpetrators accountable and combat violence. I’m committed to ensuring survivors aren’t left alone as they grapple with these traumatic experiences – support is available, and they have a fighter in me in the Senate” External link

Despite the tremendous benefits of broadband, far too many rural New Hampshire communities remain disconnected or priced out from this critical, transformative technology,” “My conversation with the Thomas family this morning laid out the importance of closing the digital gap by expanding access to reliable, high-speed broadband as our state recovers from the pandemic. Meeting with families like theirs is why I pushed to include historic investments in broadband in the bipartisan infrastructure bill that passed the Senate, and I’ll continue to work on legislation in the Senate that invests in our working families” External link

This legislation would not only provide the largest investment in clean drinking water in American history – it would also create millions of good-paying jobs, including here in New Hampshire.

Our communities are forever grateful to these brave men and women, and I offer my sincere thanks to them and their families,” “During this annual ceremony, we are reminded that we gather for this event to not only honor the officers who will receive awards, but those who serve each day with skill and professionalism, their families and especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

The President’s resolve was clear: there will be consequences for bad actors and the United States will hold Russia accountable for actions that threaten our national security and global stability,” “We cannot tolerate the Kremlin’s malice that’s targeted U.S. democratic institutions and other Western democracies, sowed discord throughout Europe and besieged U.S. partners in the region. This malevolence has increased over the years and more recently manifested in the unjust imprisonment of Alexei Navalny and other pro-democracy activists, and in Putin’s emboldening of the Lukashenka regime in Belarus. This malign behavior continues to pose a threat to our world order. I’m encouraged that President Biden’s meeting followed his consultation with our NATO allies, which is a clear demonstration of the United States’ commitment to strengthen the transatlantic alliance that was originally forged to counter Soviet influence and has endured for more than seventy years. I welcome the announcement of reinstatement of Ambassadors to Washington and Moscow, which is a constructive step to continue honest and frank dialogue on a range of critical issues. As we move forward together, it is imperative that we continue to work in good faith with our partners to defend U.S. interests, preserve our global security and make clear to our adversaries that there is no daylight between the United States and our partners on these matters” External link

I’ve heard from Granite Staters in every corner of New Hampshire over the years about what the Affordable Care Act has meant for them – parents who can breathe a sigh of relief because their children won’t be denied coverage for having pre-existing conditions; young people who at the height of the economic recession and amid today’s financial uncertainty have some peace of mind because they can stay on their parent’s health insurance until they’re twenty-six, and thousands of Granite Staters suffering from substance use disorders who are able to afford treatment for the first time due to Medicaid expansion.

These providers are relying on federal funding like Medicare reimbursement payments to help grapple with the overwhelming health and financial challenges created by this pandemic.

I was fortunate enough to visit Syria and meet some of these extraordinary men and women who overcame immeasurable adversity to reclaim their home and seek justice for their people.

This bill would redirect the decision to try these crimes away from the military chain of command to independent, trained and impartial prosecutors.

Making matters worse, our mental health centers, which were already overburdened and underfunded before this pandemic, are on the verge of a breaking point,” “As I told stakeholders and advocates this afternoon, this is a serious crisis that demands action from Congress, which is why I worked to secure federal funding in COVID-19 relief legislation to address the mental health challenges faced by Granite Staters of all ages.

Jeanne Shaheen said ( about Granite State ) : “Nonprofits across New Hampshire have been on the frontlines serving families in need throughout this pandemic, and charitable donations are their lifeline to defray costs and help keep their doors open. Yet due to changes in the tax code made by the 2017 tax law, the incentive for ordinary families to contribute to their favorite causes has been significantly weakened,” “Congress should do everything it can to keep these donations flowing, including modifying the tax code to reinstate more generous incentives for charitable giving. I’m glad to partner with this bipartisan coalition on this common-sense measure to reward charitable donations, and I’ll continue to fight for resources for Granite State nonprofits and organizations serving our most vulnerable populations” External link

Chris Pappas said ( about Jeanne Shaheen ) : “Adverse childhood experiences can have lifelong impacts on children, and the economic and health impacts of the pandemic have only exacerbated the challenges New Hampshire’s kids are facing,” “That is why ACE response teams (ACERTs) are crucial tools for communities which bring together law enforcement officers, fire fighters, and first responders – who often are the first face a child sees after a traumatic experience – and partners them with local health providers and child advocates to help mitigate trauma and ensure our children not only overcome these experiences, but have bright futures and live full lives. I’m proud to join with Senator Shaheen in introducing this legislation, and I remain committed to working to build bipartisan support for this bill and take what has been developed right here in New Hampshire and share it at the national level” External link
