U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn was sworn in to the Senate in January 2019.
In 2018, the people of Tennessee elected Marsha Blackburn as the first woman to represent the Volunteer State in the United States Senate. She is a member of the Armed Services Committee, the Commerce, Science & Transportation Committee, the Veterans Affairs Committee, and the Judiciary Committee, and serves as the Ranking Member on the Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security Subcommittee.
Before her election to the Senate, Marsha represented Tennessee’s 7th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives, where she became a leader in the fight for a small, efficient federal government that is accountable to its citizens.
Marsha dedicates her public service to promoting opportunities for women and making America a more prosperous place to live. A lifelong ally of entertainment industry professionals, Marsha began her career in public service in 1995 when she was named executive director of the Tennessee Film, Entertainment, and Music Commission. She continued her advocacy on behalf of creators and rights-owners in Washington, establishing the bipartisan Songwriters Caucus and fighting for passage of the Music Modernization Act, which revolutionized music licensing processes. In the Senate, Marsha has championed numerous initiatives on behalf of the creative community including the AM/FM Act and the HITS Act, as well as a tax classification fix for self-employed workers that was implemented as part of the CARES Act. Her in-depth work exploring the intersection of technology and culture has uncloaked the world’s most prominent “Big Tech” companies and introduced a new era of transparency into the platform-consumer relationship. In the 116th Congress, she led the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Tech Task Force, a roundtable-style working group dedicated to the examination of technology’s influence on American culture. Her in-depth analyses of the threats to American sovereignty posed by the Chinese Communist Party prompted Congress to examine legislation countering Beijing’s malign influence on global supply chains, in the technology infrastructure space, and within international organizations.
