THIS WEEK, SENATOR BRAUN continued his Summer of Solutions Tour, crisscrossing the state with stops in Evansville, Terre Haute, Attica, Valparaiso, and more talking about solutions to tamp down federal government spending, help combat the opioids crisis, and lower prescription drug prices for Hoosiers.

On a stop in Terre Haute on his Summer of Solutions Tour, Senator Braun dug deep into issues he’s been discussing with Hoosiers: the opioid crisis, national security, and how to stop a financial catastrophe by cutting back spending and chipping away at our national debt.

“‘I want to hear what’s on Hoosiers’ minds, and believe me they’ll tell you,’ Braun said during his ‘Solutions Tour.’

“Braun, a Republican from Jasper elected to the U.S. Senate in 2018, referred to his background as a businessman leading him to support a limit on federal spending.”

At a family farm in Evansville, Senator Braun held a roundtable with local farmers and small business owners to discuss the state of agriculture and the economy in southwestern Indiana.

[Braun] also stressed the importance of finalizing a revised trade agreement between Mexico, Canada, and the United States. That bill is currently held up in the House.”

 

Senator Braun stopped in to the Air National Guard 181st Intelligence Wing in Terre Haute on his Solutions Tour this week, showing his support for Hoosier men and women in uniform and the work they do in the Wabash Valley.

“The National Guard – the military in general – I think it’s the most important thing we do as a federal government.” 

In a Solutions Tour stop across the river in Louisville, Senator Braun cited Indiana’s red flag law – state law since 2005 – as an example of conservative solutions to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the dangerously mentally ill without infringing on law-abiding citizens’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

While in Louisville, Senator Braun dropped in to Terry Meiners’ radio show on 840WHAS to discuss the real cost of Bernie Sanders’ socialized medicine, sports betting in Indiana,

“We’ve got a treasure trove to work with when it comes to what the Democrats are proposing: Green New Deal, Medicare-for-All, free college tuition, get rid of all of the debt that’s built up and by the way let’s get rid of the Electoral College.”

On his swing through Evansville on the Solutions Tour, Senator Braun sat down with Brad Byrd of WEHT/WTVW to for an in-depth interview on several topics, including his first bill to pass the House and the Senate and head to President Trump’s desk to be signed into law – the Harmony Way Bridge Act – a bill that will help Hoosiers in southwestern Indiana make infrastructure decisions at the local level.

 

During a stop on the Summer of Solutions Tour, Senator Braun addressed medical marijuana and cracking down on illegal immigration, noting that he believes states should decide the legality of medical marijuana, not the federal government.

On a visit to the Cummins Test Track in Columbus, Senator Braun got behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer to learn more about this Hoosier manufacturing powerhouse.

“Braun’s visit was part of the senator’s 50-city Summer of Solutions tour, where he’s meeting with businesses and constituents around Indiana to learn more about the challenges facing the state and country.”
