Our bipartisan infrastructure law is all about creating jobs and lowering costs for working families. By upgrading our roads, bridges, airports, and seaports, we'll smooth the supply chain and grow our economy—without raising taxes on a single American family.

While the cost of meat goes up at the grocery story, big packers are raking in profits and independent ranchers are going broke—it just doesn't add up. Ag consolidation is hurting consumers and running family ranchers out of business. Congress needs to take action.

Montana's Constitution guarantees the right to a clean and healthy environment, and clean water is an essential part of that. Our water infrastructure is long overdue for an upgrade, and I'm proud we're finally delivering.

The government has no place between a woman and her doctor, plain and simple. On the 49th anniversary of #RoevWade , it's essential that we keep fighting to defend a woman's right to make her own healthcare decisions.

Transparency makes our democracy stronger. These commonsense reforms will help ensure our democracy works for everyone—not just the wealthy and well connected. (8/8)

And last but not least, my Spotlight Act shines a light on dark money donors and gives the government the tools it needs to enforce our campaign finance laws, reversing a Trump-era rule that eliminated donor disclosure requirements for certain tax-exempt organizations. (7/8)

The Honest Ads Act would require disclaimers on digital ads and require large online platforms to keep a public database of who is purchasing political ads—ensuring digital ads have the same requirements as those on TV or radio and letting folks know who is paying for them. (6/8)

The DISCLOSE Act would keep foreign actors from participating in American elections and increase transparency for major donors, so Montanans know exactly who is paying for the constant ads that flood their TVs and mailboxes during election season. (5/8)

The Cleaning Up Washington's Act, another bill of mine, would close the revolving door between D.C. lobbyists and Capitol Hill by banning former members of Congress and the Executive Branch from lobbying for five years after leaving civil service. (4/8)

I've also got the SUN Act, which would bring political spending out of the shadows by requiring tax-exempt non-profit organizations that engage in political activity to publicly disclose information about their big money online donors. (3/8)

My Corporations Are Not People Act is a constitutional amendment that would overturn the Supreme Court's harmful Citizens United decision and declare once and for all that corporations are NOT people. (2/8)

Citizens United is one of the worst decisions SCOTUS ever made. It opened the dark money floodgates and gave special interests too much power over our elections. We've got to #EndCitizensUnited and kick dark money out of our elections for good—and I've got the bills to do it 🧵

Today marks two years since COVID-19 was first detected in the U.S. These two years have been immensely challenging, and it's critical we work together to prevent this pandemic from claiming yet another year. Get vaccinated. Get boosted. Get tested regularly.
