Protecting Your Privacy, Animals,
and the Environment
Friends

This week I co-sponsored a bill which gives the Department of Justice the focus it needs to fully tackle this challenge and better protect animals in America.

The American people simply will not tolerate the abuse, torture, or senseless killing of innocent animals. In light of recent exposure of cockfighting rings in our state, cracking down on animal abuse has become all the more pressing.
 
I also co-sponsored bipartisan legislation to ban the use of federal tax dollars to create or enforce a system of "vaccine passports." The very existence of these "passports" is a huge threat to our privacy, and we can't allow them to be established in any form.

Finally, we've seen a lot of movement on the Biden administration's "infrastructure" package. To be clear, we need serious investment in our nation's roads and bridges, and both parties understand and support this idea. It's why I’m so disturbed by the hijacking of this issue as a vehicle to push a Green New Deal wishlist.

I held my second Telphone Town Hall this week to update constituents on these events and to get feedback from them on my first 100 days in Congress.
Right now, we need Washington to put aside partisanship and put the needs of our country ahead of political games. I'm willing to work with anyone and everyone to make this happen.

Sincerely,
Congresswoman Nancy Mace
Case of the Week
Anne suddenly stopped receiving unemployment payments due to a lack of information from her employer. She contacted our office with only $3 left in her bank account. With bills mounting, we inquired, resolved bureaucratic issues, and her funds were released.
 
Please tell Nancy Mace thank you not only for her response time but also for her willingness to help!”
News of Note
George Orwell warned us of doublespeak 72 years ago. Yet today, some of my colleagues on the left are using this tactic to sell their "infrastructure" package. One tweet from a New York senator even claimed child care is infrastructure. Respectfully, no, it is not.

Congresswoman Nancy Mace got the first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday and encouraged the people of the Lowcountry to do the same.
