As a changing Arctic reveals both challenges and opportunities, I joined @LisaMurkowski, @AHuitfeldt, and @AliRogin at the @NorwayUS to discuss the need to reinforce international norms in the far north. A good discussion, and I look forward to our continued work together.

On this day 80 years ago, a tragic, unprompted attack on Pearl Harbor altered the course of history. Today, we honor those who perished on that fateful morning, and remember the heroism of U.S. servicemembers in the face of this unexpected challenge.

The great outdoors and our parks aren't just inspiring, they are also an economic driver for our state. In order to deliver "America's Best Idea" to more people and support Maine’s economy, we need to make our parks and lands more accessible than ever.

It’s right there in the Preamble to the Constitution: ensuring America’s national security is our government’s fundamental responsibility. It is absolutely essential that the Senate passes the bipartisan NDAA to support our servicemembers and defend our nation.
