Fischer Presses AG Garland on Local Law Enforcement Funding, Support for States Grappling with Biden’s Catch and Release Policies

"President Biden's budget request for the Justice Department states that its goal is to uphold the rule of law. I appreciate this goal, but I don't see a budget that truly supports this vision.

Fischer: Biden’s Rushed EV Agenda Puts First Responders’ Safety At Risk

"Chair Homendy, during last month's hearing, we discussed my concerns over the safety implications of electric vehicles.

I worry that in its mission to push more EVs on consumers, this administration has been short-sighted on the safety challenges of this new technology," said Senator Fischer.
