Fischer Joins “Mornings with Maria” to Discuss Biden’s Israel Flip Flops, Border Show Vote

"Everybody knows that this border is chaotic, and it is not secure. And Schumer can try and hide that. But this administration right now has the power to change it. They have the power to build the wall. They have the power to reinstate the Remain in Mexico. They have the power to end catch and release. Are they doing it, Maria? No, instead they want a show vote that means absolutely nothing, that will not secure our border," from Senator Fischer.

Fischer Presses Senior Naval Officials on Need for Sea-Launched Cruise Missile Program, Importance of Bolstering U.S. Domestic Industrial Base

"Mr. Secretary and Admiral, I am deeply concerned that the Navy did not request any funding for SLCM-N in their base budget or in the Navy's unfunded priorities list letter. This is a stark contrast to NNSA, which did include a robust funding request for development of the SLCM-N, the warhead in their unfunded priorities list. Although the production decision remains years away, let me be clear: we expect the Navy to take all actions necessary to develop this missile so that if, if a decision is made to move to production, we can do so without delay. And I expect to see this program included in your base budgets moving forward," said Senator Fischer.

Fischer, Ricketts Welcome USPS Pause in Changes to Mail Delivery Network

“The USPS ‘modernization’ plan failed to consider the impact on rural communities like North Platte and could have slowed down the very mail service it attempted to modernize, which is why I asked the Postmaster General to delay the plan for implementation. For now, no changes should occur at the North Platte facility. This pause should allow more time for the plan and its impact to be studied. I encourage USPS to take the next year to listen to people in communities like North Platte and to incorporate their feedback into any changes that occur after January of 2025,” said Senator Fischer.
