Sen. Lee Speaks Against the D.C. Crime Bill
Mar 8, 2023
Voting for this Resolution presents an opportunity for my Democratic colleagues to make a distinction. Will you join us in a bipartisan recognition that we cannot endanger the lives of DC residents by allowing this soft-on-crime bill to go into effect? Or will you stand with the D.C City Council and put politics above public safety?

The Kigali Amendment Places America at a Competitive Disadvantage
Sep 21, 2022
China is not a developing nation. China is the world’s second-largest economy, the world’s largest manufacturer, and the world’s number one creditor. Yet, this body is poised to ratify a treaty that ignores those facts and treats China with kid gloves. Simply put, the Kigali Amendment places America at a competitive disadvantage, using American taxpayer dollars to subsidize Chinese companies.
Sen. Lee Calls for the Release of Lt. Alkonis
Jul 25, 2022
Madam President, On Sunday, Lt. Ridge Alkonis was forced to leave his wife and three children to report to Japanese prison. An American serviceman had to explain to his kids that although he did nothing wrong, he had to leave them for three years. While serving his country in Japan, Lt. Alkonis was involved in a car accident resulting from a medical emergency. The accident left two people dead. I speak sincerely when I say my deepest sympathies are with their families, friends, and loved ones. I can’t begin to imagine their sense of loss, confusion, hurt, and anger associated with this horrific accident.
Sen. Lee's FORMULA Act Heads to President's Desk
Jul 21, 2022
For months, American babies have endured an unprecedented and prolonged formula shortage. Some doctors have called this the worst crisis of their careers. It has become so widespread that nearly everyone knows someone that has been personally affected. Desperate parents have scoured online marketplaces, reached out to family and friends for help, and paid exorbitant markups to feed their babies. In worst-case scenarios, some resorted to dangerous homemade formulas. Mr. President, in the United States of America, no parent should be left to wonder how they will feed their newborn baby. After months of work and bipartisan collaboration with my colleagues in the House and Senate, I rise to pass needed reforms that will provide relief to hungry babies.
