On Equal Pay Day, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) introduced S. 925 the Women on the Twenty Act, legislation that would direct the Secretary of the Treasury to convene a panel of citizens to recommend a woman whose likeness would be featured on a new twenty dollar bill. The legislation complements a grassroots campaign, Women on 20s (or “W20”), which has garnered hundreds of thousands of online votes in support of the change.
Senator Shaheen toured Port Canaveral Naval Pier to receive an update on the Navy’s Virginia Class Submarine program and embark on the Virginia Class Submarine USS New Hampshire to see the submarine’s capabilities firsthand.
Senator Shaheen toured local Granite State businesses in Manchester and Tilton today to highlight the impact a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding lapse could have on local companies and national security.
U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) was sworn in to serve her second, six-year term as New Hampshire’s senior senator by Vice President Joe Biden. In the 114th Congress, Shaheen will continue to serve on the Senate Committees on Armed Services, Foreign Relations, Appropriations, and Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
