Hoosier Bill Garrett was one of the first African Americans to play on a Big Ten basketball team at Indiana University. He paved the way for collegiate athletic opportunities in Midwest Black communities. Coach Garrett led Crispus Attucks High School to the state championship in 1959 - becoming the first Indiana Mr. Basketball to win the tournament as a player at Shelbyville and as a coach. #MarkerMonday #Bloomington #BlackHistoryMonth https://www.in.gov/history/markers/4338.htm

I continue to hear from Hoosiers about the need for increased access to mental and behavioral health services particularly in rural areas. I recently spoke at American Telemedicine Association's Telehealth Policy Conference on my efforts to support greater access to these services in Indiana.

My heart breaks for the Bayh family. Susan was an accomplished attorney who loved serving our state as First Lady. But she found even more joy in raising her twin boys. I appreciate the kindness the Bayh family has shown me over the years, and I’m praying for them in their time of grief.

President Biden has emphasized his desire for unity, but actions from his Democratic counterparts in Congress aren’t matching up to his rhetoric. Their plan to ram a one-sided COVID-19 package through Congress without bipartisan negotiation is the exact opposite of unity. When I joined a group of my Republican colleagues at the White House this week to propose a more targeted approach focused directly on COVID-19 relief, I was pleased that the President offered a courteous ear and appeared ready to work with Republicans to find common ground on relief for Americans, just as we have done five previous times since this pandemic began. We should be working together to get vaccines in arms, provide small business relief, and get our kids back to school. But instead, national Democrats are prioritizing a partisan package that focuses more on liberal priorities that have nothing to do with the pandemic, such as bailing out fiscally irresponsible states and raising the minimum wage. I’m disappointed this is the approach Democrats in Congress have chosen to take.

Op-ed: Here's how Pete Buttigieg can ease Indiana trucking's labor shortage

"Imagine a driver based in South Bend, Indiana, who cannot legally accept a route driving just a few miles to nearby Niles, Michigan, but inexplicably can make the 625-mile round trip from South Bend to Evansville."
My DRIVE-Safe Act fixes this problem.

Lowering the age at which truck drivers can cross state lines would ease a labor shortage, writes a South Bend-based food service company's president.

Young, Cotton Introduce Amendment to Prohibit Stimulus Checks for Illegal Immigrants | U.S. Senator Todd Young of Indiana

Economic Impact Payments were intended to provide a lifeline to Americans struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic. They were not intended for people who are in our country illegally.

I filed an amendment to the budget resolution currently being debated on the Senate floor with Senator Cotton that would ensure people who break our immigration laws aren’t receiving taxpayer-funded handouts. https://www.young.senate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/young-cotton-introduce-amendment-to-prohibit-stimulus-checks-for-illegal-immigrants

For years, the 1787 NW Ordinance was misinterpreted, perpetuating slavery in Indiana. Then Polly Strong took her fight for freedom to the state Supreme Court, forcing Indiana to honor its constitution’s commitment to outlaw slavery. As a result of Polly Strong’s fight for liberation, this terrible institution gradually disappeared in Indiana. #MarkerMonday #Corydon #BlackHistoryMonth https://www.in.gov/history/state-historical-markers/find-a-marker/find-historical-markers-by-county/indiana-historical-markers-by-county/polly-strong-slavery-case/

Year after year, Hoosiers remain united behind our most fundamental right - the right to life. Even though this year’s March for Life is virtual, it is just as important that we stand up for the unborn, especially now that the Biden Administration has already taken steps to allow taxpayer-funded abortions on demand. I will continue to stand up for the unborn and support legislation that protects innocent life. #WhyWeMarch https://www.young.senate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/young-statement-on-biden-abortion-actions
