Mark Green on the baby formula shortage, the new Ministry of Truth, discriminatory race-conscious college admissions and more.

From Congressman Mark Green:

An Update from Washington: 

To Tennessee's parents who are struggling to find formula for your baby: I hear you. Over 100 Republican lawmakers are calling on President Biden and FDA Commissioner Robert Califf to immediately address the formula shortage. Tennessee was tragically one of five states where formula was completely sold out during the week of April 24th. Just know I am working to get immediate solutions from this Administration. No parent should have to worry about finding formula for their baby. 

This week, I joined Senator Ted Cruz, Congresswoman Michelle Steel, and more than 80 Republican lawmakers in filing an amicus brief over discriminatory admissions practices at Harvard and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Harvard and UNC's admissions policies intentionally divide applicants by race. These race-conscious admissions decisions inflict a heavy toll on Asian-American students. Read more here

 In other news, I'm demanding answers from Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas over his department's new "Disinformation" Governance Board. Make no mistake about it: This board is right out of the Chinese Communist Party's playbook. Read our letter with 174 lawmakers.

During this week's House Armed Services Committee hearing, we heard from Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth and Army Chief of Staff General James McConville regarding FY2023's Army budget requests. I'm concerned that President Biden's proposed defense budget shrinks the Army by 12,000 soldiers. You can listen to my remarks and questions here.
