For the last five decades, @Amtrak has shuttled countless Americans from station to station across the country. And with the American Jobs Plan, we’ll give Amtrak the investment it needs to be greener, safer, more accessible and help expand its rails from coast to coast.

Our nation grieves with the families who lost loved ones in Indianapolis and we pray that those who were wounded recover quickly. As I said last week, we’ve had more tragedy than we can bear and solutions to prevent gun violence exist. @POTUS and I urge Congress to act.

Faced with a lack of support from academic institutions, along with the burden of the pandemic, child care needs, and racism, many women in science are being pushed out of the workforce.
We must do more to support women in STEM and across industries. https://t.co/cfRUXSAvpK
