Marsha Blackburn Report: Reining Big Tech to Keep Our Kids Safe Online – Clarksville Online

Washington, DC – Big Tech has proven its inability to adequately protect our children online, and it is time for Congress to step in. For that reason, Senator Blumenthal and I led a bipartisan group of more than 30 colleagues in enacting the Kids Online Safety Act.

Not only does the bill require social media companies to make their platforms more secure by default, but it also provides parents with the tools they need to protect their children online.

weekly overview

As we saw last summer, the awakened liberal mob will go to great lengths to crack down on those they disagree with — even by illegally intimidating Supreme Court justices in their private homes. This week I introduced the Protection of Our Supreme Court Justices Act to discourage harassment of our judges and send a message the Biden administration has refused to send: Judges must be able to do their jobs without fear for the safety of themselves or their families.

The recent Tennessee tornadoes have highlighted the need for a better understanding of forecasting and communication before and during hazardous weather. Along with a bipartisan group of senators, I introduced the TORNADO bill, which would require the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to update its methods of forecasting and communicating weather warnings to residents.

With Title 42 expiring next week, I sent a letter to President Joe Biden urging him to reverse course and retain the deletion power for Title 42. The Title 42 Order has been a lifeline for the men and women of the US Border Patrol, who have worked heroically 24 hours a day to secure our southern border in the midst of the worst border crisis of our lives.
