Elizabeth Warren 24 minutes ago:   Thursday Jul 16 - 1:12pm The COVID-19 public health emergency declaration has helped states like Massachusetts expand life-saving services during the pandemic. But this crisis isn’t over. The entire Massachusetts delegation is urging @HHSgov to extend the declaration before it expires in nine days. https://t.co/yTglhGX2h3 Elizabeth Warren 21 hours ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 4:04pm I’ve got a bill that would make #TaxDay easier by allowing millions of Americans to simply sign & return a pre-filled tax form. Congress could save taxpayers billions of dollars & countless hours preparing taxes by passing my bill for return-free filing. https://t.co/GTCm49wi7N Elizabeth Warren 21 hours ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 4:04pm For 5+ years, I've pushed to replace the IRS Free File program that let tax prep companies trick people into paying for services that should be free. I’m glad that earlier this year, the IRS reformed Free File to let the IRS compete with these companies. https://t.co/56WV2ruKLl Elizabeth Warren 22 hours ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 3:24pm RT @theappeal: On #TheBriefing, @SenWarren on the need to strengthen renter protections: “We've seen reports that even renters who should have been protected are getting evicted…State and local moratoriums have been a lifeline for people.

I will continue to fight for #EnvironmentalJustice & to build a clean energy future. https://t.co/CBho2rdHXu Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 12:30pm Trump is once again selling out & silencing communities in favor of giant corporate polluters. Rolling back NEPA restricts public input & puts frontline communities – especially communities of color – at even greater risk during the public health crisis. https://t.co/ZHXGLIuwOz Elizabeth Warren 1 day ago:   Wednesday Jul 15 - 11:56am Health officials need trustworthy and transparent data to fight COVID-19.

That starts with holding officers & police depts with a history of racist/discriminatory policing accountable. Congress must pass our bill to do just that. Elizabeth Warren 1 week ago:   Monday Jul 6 - 7:17pm The Enhancing Oversight to End Discrimination in Policing Act would:
✅ Rescind the Sessions limits on the use of consent decrees
✅ Empower state AGs to pursue pattern or practice investigations
✅ Triple funding for DOJ’s @CivilRights Division to pursue these cases Elizabeth Warren 1 week ago:   Monday Jul 6 - 7:17pm Under Obama, @TheJusticeDept investigated racist policing & forced police depts to reform.

Elizabeth Warren 1 week ago:   Friday Jul 3 - 10:47am In December I warned @USDOL not to propose a conflict of interest standard that mirrored the SEC's deeply flawed new rule for broker-dealers.

Link to Image Elizabeth Warren 1 week ago:   Thursday Jul 2 - 2:03pm Thank you, @RyanBudhu, for sharing the tragic story of your brother's death in police custody and challenging all of us – especially those of us with privilege – to confront racism in this country. https://t.co/rKQ92tgMK2 Elizabeth Warren 2 weeks ago:   Thursday Jul 2 - 12:56pm Public health officials & assisted living residents & their families need to know about COVID-19 cases & fatalities. @RepMaloney, @SenMarkey & I have a new bill to enact strict data collection and reporting requirements for assisted living centers. https://t.co/pVWDj2xbHm Elizabeth Warren 2 weeks ago:   Thursday Jul 2 - 12:56pm My report with @RepMaloney & @SenMarkey found:
❌ 24% of assisted living facilities had at least 1 COVID-19 case. 8% had 10+ cases
❌ 43% of infected residents were hospitalized. 31% died.
That means about 7,000+ assisted living residents may have died from COVID-19 as of 5/31. Elizabeth Warren 2 weeks ago:   Thursday Jul 2 - 12:56pm Assisted living centers have similar COVID-19 risks as nursing homes but not the same regulations & reporting requirements. We investigated assisted living operators & found alarming infection & fatality rates. Congress must require this data collection. https://t.co/YvmWj3leIu Elizabeth Warren 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jul 1 - 9:44pm RT @civilrightsorg: BREAKING: The House just passed #HJRes90 to nullify a rule from the @USOCC that would drastically undermine one of our nation’s most important civil rights laws – the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977.
We urge the Senate to protect civil rights and pass this resolution. https://t.co/6g2SU3j9YP
Link to Image Elizabeth Warren 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jul 1 - 8:58pm RT @SenMarkey: Qualified immunity makes it almost impossible for a victim of excessive force by a police officer to hold that officer accountable in a court of law.
That must end.
Today, @SenSanders, @SenWarren, and I introduced legislation to once-and-for-all abolish qualified immunity. Elizabeth Warren 2 weeks ago:   Wednesday Jul 1 - 8:20pm I support the Cambridge City Council’s resolution of solidarity with @WholeFoods workers who want to wear #BlackLivesMatter masks & speak out against systemic racism. This is an absurd policy. But @Amazon must do much more to address the racial inequalities in their company.
