#LWCF is a program that matters. It makes a difference. And it operates at NO COST to taxpayers. Voting to protect it is the right thing to do. 4/4

I want to thank my colleagues, @SenCoryGardner, @SteveDaines, @SenatorCantwell, @SenatorBennet and many others, who helped lead the charge to #SaveLWCF and to preserve America’s amazing natural treasures. 3/4

Today’s vote has been a long time in the making. We knew three years ago that #LWCF (founded in 1965) would expire in Sept. 2018, but despite strong bipartisan support, Congress was slow to act. I am glad we’re finally fixing that. 2/4

Big News: The Senate is about to vote to #SaveLWCF, America’s most successful conservation program, as part of the #LandsPackage2019. Today’s vote will provide the certainty necessary for #LWCF to carry out important long-term efforts. 1/4

Walter will be remembered as a man of strong principles, willing to take an unpopular stand when necessary. He was a hard-working and faithful public servant, and he will be sorely missed. Our prayers are with his family – may he rest in peace. 2/2

Saddened to hear of the passing of my friend and former colleague @JohnDingell. John was a true legend in the House, and anyone who worked with him learned a great deal in the process.

Thank you @SecElaineChao & @USDOTFRA Administrator Batory for this needed investment in NC’s and America’s infrastructure. These improvements mark the next step toward high-speed rail between Raleigh and Richmond, helping bring our transportation system into the 21st century. 2/2

Our economy is booming, our job market is flourishing, and millions of Americans now get to keep more of their hard-earned paychecks each week. My full statement on tonight’s #SOTU here: https://www.burr.senate.gov/press/releases/sen-burr-statement-on-president-trumps-state-of-the-union-address …

.@NatlParkService announced yesterday that two more North Carolina battlefields will be preserved for future generations thanks to #LWCF. This is yet another example of why we have to #SaveLWCF - so it can continue its important conservation work.

304k more jobs in January with private-sector wages rising 3.2% over the last year, according to @BLS_Gov. Continued growth and success thanks to the #TaxCutsandJobsAct

#OnThisDay February 1, 1960, four African American college students sat down at the lunch counter at Woolworth’s Department Store in Greensboro and were refused service, launching a sit-in movement that would spread throughout NC and the South: https://bit.ly/2SdEHyh

As #BlackHistoryMonth begins, let’s honor the brave young men whose decision to sit down at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, NC inspired a sit-in movement across the South. #OnThisDay in 1960.

Our enemies are going to keep finding new ways of attacking us that exploit the openness of our society, and slip through the seams in a national security architecture designed for the Cold War. We can’t afford to get complacent. Full statement here: https://www.burr.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Intel%20Hrg%20-%20Worldwide%20Threats%201.29.2019%20-%20Burr%20Opener.pdf …

3/These indictments should send a clear message that the U.S. will not tolerate pernicious and illegitimate behavior that threatens our economic and national security.

2/Huawei is a global bad actor operating at the behest of the Chinese government and intelligence services. It seeks to undermine legitimate competition, while subverting laws and democratic institutions.
