While these settlements will not bring back those we have lost to the drug epidemic, I am thankful that CVS and Walmart have agreed to pay a total of $147M for their roles in this crisis, and I'm hopeful this funding can be used to prevent more deaths. thehill.com/policy/healthc…

GOOD NEWS: #WV will receive $83 MILLION from @EPA for water infrastructure improvements thanks to the #BipartisanInfrastructureLaw. I was proud to fight for this funding that addresses WV's water infrastructure needs. MORE: sen.gov/1Z4X
Safeguarding our democracy is not a Democratic or Republican issue - it’s an American issue. The time to reform the Electoral Count Act is long overdue. The time for Congress to act is now. I’m thankful that our commonsense proposal has growing, bipartisan support. twitter.com/SenatorCollins…
West Virginia is one of the most patriotic states in the nation, and I was honored to speak with more than 900 of our students today from 39 #WV schools about the wonderful opportunities at a U.S. Service Academy.
The #BipartisanInfrastructureLaw means you'll be seeing a lot more @WVDOT crews working on our roads. Today I met with WVDOT Secretary Jimmy Wriston to offer my full support as #WV receives roughly $3 billion to repair our roadways & around $500 million to repair bridges.
I was proud to secure $267K through a Congressionally Directed Spending Request for Cabell Huntington Hospital's Neonatal Therapeutic Unit at Hoops Family Children's Hospital to support additional facilities & increased services for pregnant women. MORE: sen.gov/XY52

WATCH: Putin's war in Ukraine is fueling a global energy crisis that will only get worse as winter approaches. America can — and must — step up to the plate. It's time for Congress to get off our proverbial hind ends and start acting like Americans — not Republicans & Democrats.
Whether we're building pipelines, solar farms or wind turbines, The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2022 will help us bring energy to the market faster and at a lower cost. We can't let politics get in the way of making these necessary & long-overdue reforms.
Over the past 5 years, natural gas costs have gone up over 200%. In Europe, it's up over 1,100%. Energy has been weaponized by Putin. We can offset that by reforming our permitting process, which will put more energy into the market & bring down costs for utilities & consumers.
THREAD: If the United States wants to remain the superpower of the world, we must have energy independence. The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2022 will make necessary permitting reforms to ensure we can produce the cleanest possible energy for ourselves & our allies.
@ENERGY With ~1,500 miles of abandoned mine land impaired streams in WV, extracting critical minerals from acid mine drainage can create opportunities & bring our critical minerals supply chain to the US while cleaning up watersheds impacted by abandoned mine pollution. It's a win-win.
I’m thrilled @ENERGY is moving forward with a Bipartisan Infrastructure Law program that funds a first of its kind facility to extract rare earth elements & critical minerals from sources like mine waste. energy.gov/articles/biden…
