As Rosh Hashanah approaches, I want to wish my Jewish friends in Eastern Washington and throughout the country a sweet and happy New Year.
This past year has been one filled with conflict and divisiveness at home and around the world. Yet, it has also been a time of hope, with Israel enjoying a tenuous peace with her neighbors and a new administration
This is always one of my favorite events of the year, and I'm excited to once again join Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. in hosting this summit. Military families face unique situations and challenges, and this summit is one way we can help connect them with the resources they need.
The Teaching Health Centers and Graduate Medical Education program is crucial to making sure we can meet the medical needs of people all over Eastern Washington -- both in rural and urban areas. I want more doctors here in our community so we can all have access to the care we need. This program can help get us there.
Happy 70th Birthday to the United States Air Force! I am especially grateful for all those who serve at Fairchild Air Force Base. For those who don’t know, Fairchild is the largest tanker base in the U.S. and plays a critical role in our Asia Pacific strategy.

On this Constitution Day, it’s a great time to check out this documentary from HBO on the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence. They are the words that built America and I was honored to be a part of this project earlier this year.
Today is #ConstitutionDay, an annual reflection on the genius of our Founding Fathers and the promise of America through our Constitution.

To begin to fix our forest fire issues we must both encourage active forest management, and fix fire borrowing issues so the Forest Service has the ability to manage forests and to fight fires when they arise.
Not all our heroes are able to come home. Today, we reflect on that fact as we remember all of our service men and women who are, or were, prisoners of war or missing in action. I’m so thankful to those who have served and sacrificed for our freedoms. You are not forgotten. #POWMIARecognitionDay
Teaching Health Centers will help get more doctors to rural communities. The Spokane Teaching Health Clinic is a great model for the country. With my bill we can see this type of success all over the country.
My heart goes out to the student who died yesterday, his family, and to all those injured and impacted by the events at Freeman High School. Thank you to the police and first responders, to the medical teams, and to the school officials who helped take quick action to avoid further tragedy. Please pray for the victims and their families, and for Rockford,
Forest fires act fast, and so should we. Our communities can’t afford to wait any longer for action. Listen in as my colleagues and I discuss how we can work to protect our forests from fires through proper management and local collaboration.
Steve Gleason is a hero and inspiration to all of us, especially to the thousands of Americans living with degenerative diseases who, like him, rely on speech generating devices to communicate with their family, friends, and doctors. My Steve Gleason Enduring Voices Act will ensure this technology is permanently available through Medicare for those
Like many in Eastern Washington and across the country, I will never forget where I was on September 11, 2001. I was at home in Colville, Washington on that fateful morning as we watched hatred and extremism try to tear us down. Today we reflect on the lives lost in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania, and the families and friends whose worlds
