Senator Richard Blumenthal said the Federal Recognition Process needs to be reformed. The process needs to be …"Fairer, objective and speedier." Hear his words on video. the life of me, I cannot understand why the BIA is pursuing this very misguided and mistaken draft, which seems profoundly illegal as well as critically unwise,'' Blumenthal said Wednesday. "They will have a second bite at recognition and a playing field whose goal lines have been drastically moved. The second bite should RESTORE the recognition they already achieved the recognition that was ripped away under that unfair, less objective, and a 30 year long process, frequent with rules changes over those years. Misguided Senator Blumenthal.the process needs to be "Fairer, objective and speedier." just like you said Senator Blumenthal. "Profoundly illegal" … Senator Blumenthal. I don't believe for one minute that you, and all CT's politicians would ask the BIA to do anything illegal, especially for the last 10 years?

S.719 - Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease Prevention, Education, and Research Act of 2013 is a National Bill currently before the 113th Congress (2013-2014) sponsored by Senator Richard Blumenthal [D-CT] and co-sponsored by 10 others. I've read the bill and found it lacking, but it's a start in the right direction since it calls for a "scientifically qualified assessment of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases, including both acute and chronic." This at least shows recognition that Chronic Lyme Disease is a real thing.

OF GUNS, KNIVES AND BASEBALL BATS May 28, 2014 In the wake of a mass murder in Isla Vista, Calif., critics of America’s gun laws have been predictably quick to trot out the classics, advocating the passage of new restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms and blaming the National Rifle Association for opposing what are invariably termed “common sense” reforms. On Sunday, Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut took to Face the Nation to claim that if Congress had passed his preferred measures last year, it would have “finally” put a “stop the madness” and brought an “end the insanity that has killed too many young people.” This is nonsense. The bill to which Blumenthal refers would have made it illegal for gun owners to trade their firearms privately without undergoing a background check, prohibited magazines that held over ten rounds, and instituted a new ban on what politicians have termed “assault weapons” — that is, standard rifles that boast certain cosmetic features. B ...

Nevada, please send Harry home! “I think it resembles fourth graders playing in a sandbox, and I’ll give the majority leader, Harry Reid, 99 percent of the responsibility for it,” Senator Lamar Alexander, Republican of Tennessee and usually one of the more reserved members, said Thursday. “He’s going to have ‘The End of the Senate’ written on his tombstone,” Mr. Alexander complained. Senator Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, called this week “chaotic and confusing, and a shameful waste of time.”

Response from Kelly Ayotte. Please let her know what you think about her decision to deny poor women access to abortions. Thank you for contacting me regarding the Women's Health Protection Act (S. 1696). I appreciate hearing from you. On November 13, 2013, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) introduced S. 1696, which was referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee. If enacted, S. 1696 would prohibit any state from passing laws that restrict access to abortions. I am pro-life, and I do not think it is appropriate to spend taxpayer dollars on elective abortion services. Although I am not a member of the Judiciary Committee, please be assured that I will keep your thoughts in mind should the full Senate consider S. 1696.

As I write this op-ed, I primp for the mirror -- looking for the most flattering pose -- for my mug shot. Now, don't get the wrong impression; I haven't been arrested and charged with a federal felony -- yet. Nor is the preparation done in anticipation of a guest stint on "America's Next Top Model" -- but as a common sense reaction to Obama's predictable signing of the latest assault on the Bill of Rights -- namely -- H.R. 347 (and its companion senate bill S. 1794); aka the "Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011." Sounding more like an appropriations bill authorizing monies for federal grounds landscaping -- this bill, better known to those in the DC beltway as the 'Trespass Bill' -- potentially makes peaceable protest anywhere in the U.S. a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

SPECIAL LEGISLATIVE ALERT BULLETIN Ensure that our nation's veterans have unimpeded access to chiropractic Background: With the recent U.S. Senate Veterans Affairs Committee hearing on S. 422, the committee is poised to soon consider this legislation which directs the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to expand the number of sites where the services provided by a Doctor of Chiropractic are available. S. 422, the Chiropractic Care Available to All Veterans Act introduced by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), mirrors House legislation in calling for the VA to phase in the essential services provided by doctors of chiropractic to all major VA medical facilities over the next several years. Why is this important? VA data (Analysis of VA Health Care Utilization Among Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) Veterans) cite “diseases of Musculoskeletal System/Connective System,” as the number one ailment of Iraq/Afghanistan veterans accessing VA treatment. WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: ...

Pressure is building on the military to change its culture from within after an alarming Pentagon report estimates 26,000 service members were sexually assaulted last year. President Obama calls these crimes “shameful and disgraceful.” Another layer to this problem is that very few of these assaults are actually reported. Now federal lawmakers including Connecticut’s Senator Richard Blumenthal are supporting bills to change how the military prosecutes these cases so victims no longer fear retaliation Today we’ll hear from veterans who were assaulted while serving their country and are now demanding justice. We’ll also check in with VA Connecticut about how veterans can get help years after experiencing this trauma. Are you a veteran? What do you think needs to happen within the military to stop a problem that tarnishes a respected institution?

Washington, D.C. – The Senate Judiciary Committee debating the bipartisan immigration reform plan approved today three amendments by U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) that would provide protections against abuse and fraud involving temporary workers recruited abroad. The amendments would cover workers recruited in all of the temporary worker programs – H1B, H2B and the new W visas for “low-wage workers” and W3 and W4 agricultural worker visa program.   Working with the International Labor Recruitment Working Group, a coalition of immigrant rights groups and unions, including the United Farm Workers, Sen. Blumenthal drafted the amendments as follows:   Amendment 3 “ARM13595” – Establishes private right of action against foreign labor recruitment agencies found responsible for recruitment violations.   Amendment 4 “ARM13597” − Requires the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to consult with the Secretary of Labor regarding regulations, policies, and procedu ...
News Update out of Connecticut: Yesterday (Friday), during the peak of the evening commute, an eastbound Metro-North train derailed just after 6 pm and was hit by a westbound train between the Bridgeport and Fairfield stations, NBC News reported. According to a statement made by Senator Richard Blumenthal, "The damage is absolutely staggering." Roughly 60 passengers were injured during the collision, and currently, two remain in critical condition in Bridgeport Hospital, and a third person is still considered in serious condition. Amtrak service between NYC and Hew Haven County remained suspended today, and rail officials said they could not give an estimate on when schedules will return to normal, according to NBC News. Thankfully, there are no reported casualties.

U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) issued the following statement today in response to letters sent to three Connecticut gun manufacturers by Mississippi Speaker of the House of Representatives Philip Gunn urging them to relocate to Mississippi:    "In deciding to stay or locate here, companies will consider that our state has the best and most skilled workforce in the nation, a superlative quality of life and a superior education system. We support second amendment rights and responsible gun ownership, far from demonizing fire arms products made here. We have supported those constitutional rights along with lawful activities like recreational shooting and hunting."

From the Lyme disease film "Under Our Skin": "Did the Newtown shooter suffer from "Lyme Rage"? A question we've been asking from the beginning is now leaking into the mainstream press, with Lyme literate physicians weighing in. We've blogged on the issue in the past, after the Connecticut chimp attack and an Illinois Church shooting, cases in which the perpetrators both had neurological Lyme. Adam Lanza's mother is reported to have had MS (often a Lyme misdiagnosis) and he was reported to have had psychiatric manifestations sometimes seen in Lyme cases. UNDER OUR SKIN has written letters to the medical examiner performing the autopsy on Adam Lanza and to CT Senator Richard Blumenthal (interviewed in UOS), urging thorough Lyme testing in autopsy. Amidst the swirling politics and hypotheses, our hearts go out to the families and to all the people of Newtown (where, incidentally, Elise the pregnant mother from UNDER OUR SKIN, lived and was filmed.)"

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) says teh NRA is "irrelevant" in the gun debate after Sandy Hook. "The NRA today in its approach will be irrelevant, because it can't be a credible and constructive participant in this debate if it says the only acceptable solution is armed guards in schools"
On Tuesday evening, December 4, the Senate passed two bills to increase protection for animals. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) introduced the bipartisan
Great news from U.S. Senate on animal welfare! The Senate, by voice vote, just passed S. 1947, to make it a federal crime to attend or bring a child to a dogfight or cockfighting. This is a hugely significant bill in our efforts to eradicate animal fighting. Now we must get the House to pass the bill before the Congress adjourns in the next two weeks. The House bill is H.R. 2492, and it has 227 cosponsors. Kudos in particular to Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut for leading the fight in the Senate!
Yesterday, legislation I introduced with Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), the End Trafficking in Government Contracting Act, was adopted as part of the national defense bill which is currently pending before the Senate. Earlier this month, we launched the Senate Caucus to End Human Trafficking with actress Jada Pinkett Smith. The caucus will bring Senators together to combat human trafficking by promoting awareness, removing demand, supporting prosecution efforts, and providing appropriate service systems for survivors. I am very pleased that the Senate acted on legislation that Senator Blumenthal and I have championed for nearly a year to strengthen protections against trafficking in connection with overseas federal contracts. This bill will ensure that America’s overseas wartime and reconstruction contracts are performed in accord with not only our mission, but also our deeply held values as Americans. You can read more about the legislation and my efforts to help stop human trafficking here: 1 . ...
