Position on Issues

Other, 2019

When asked if she would support a carbon tax by Laura Knoy in April 2019, Sen. Hassan answered, "I will look at the bill, I haven't looked at that one closely. Again, I think it's really important to invest in steps that move us as quickly as we need to go. And Iwant to make sure that any proposal doesn't distract and take us away from that but I will look very closely at that."

Sen. Hassan has not endorsed Medicare for All. "'That approach is not what Senator Hassan is focused on,' her spokeswoman, Ricki Eshman, said. 'What the senator is focused on is finding ways to work across the aisle to improve and build on the Affordable Care Act so that we can bring down health care costs - particularly the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs - that are squeezing families in New Hampshire and across the country. Sen. Hassan remains ready and eager to work across party lines to find bipartisan solutions to bring down health care costs.'"

"President Trump's budget proposal would directly undermine our economy and the ability of New Hampshire families to get ahead and stay ahead. This irresponsible proposal would jeopardize critical economic priorities and hurt job-creating businesses in order to pay for tax cuts for corporate special interests and an expensive and ineffective border wall."

"Senator Hassan is committed to protecting a woman’s right to control her own destiny. After the New Hampshire Executive Council defunded Planned Parenthood, Senator Hassan led efforts to provide federal grants to Planned Parenthood — ensuring that many Granite Staters could continue to access affordable and quality reproductive care. She is a sponsor of the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would protect a woman’s freedom to decide how and when she wants to start a family, without fear that this constitutional right would be undermined in the courts or by state lawmakers. Senator Hassan also worked to lift the domestic Gag Rule put in place by the Trump administration, which prevented women from accessing important health services at family planning centers. And she helped pass bipartisan legislation to reduce maternal deaths in rural communities."

"President Zelenskyy’s message to Congress was clear and unwavering: Ukraine needs our help. The world has seen the heartbreaking toll of Russia’s brutality, and the incredible bravery and determination of Ukrainians in the face of harrowing attacks. In this critical hour, we must provide additional aid and equipment to Ukraine and continue to impose even more severe sanctions on Putin, his cronies, and the Russian economy, as we work to avoid further escalation."

"Title 42 was put in place at the beginning of the pandemic, and it makes no sense to end it when the administration continues to keep in place other pandemic restrictions and when it does not yet have a comprehensive plan to handle a steep increase in attempted border crossings that will occur once Title 42 is repealed," said Senator Hassan. "Repealing Title 42 without a plan in place will do nothing to promote a responsible border policy that keeps our country safe and lives up to our humanitarian values. I urge my colleagues to join us in supporting this bipartisan bill, and I look forward to hearing directly from border agents during my trip to the border this weekend about what additional steps the administration must take to strengthen border security."

"Hassan said she believed that 'there might be some unintended consequences to abolishing qualified immunity entirely,' and that this was one of the issues she was 'continuing to evaluate and get feedback on.'"

Sen. Hassan cosponsored a bill that would revised Section 230 with a narrow focus on images of child sexual abuse.

"Technology companies have a responsibility to crack down on child sexual abuse material on their platforms, and we must hold the predators who engage in these horrific crimes accountable," said Senator Hassan. "This bipartisan bill will pressure tech companies to work to protect children and address these crimes with the seriousness and urgency that they deserve."

"The expansion of the child tax credit in the American Rescue Plan is a critical investment in our families that will help improve children’s well-being and set them up for future success. I urge Granite States to check to see if they are eligible to receive these credits, and I’ll keep working to provide additional support to families, including by pushing to expand this tax credit."

"Rejecting the Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline was the right decision for our environment and natural resources, for addressing climate change, and for pursuing a cleaner energy future. I previously expressed my concerns to Secretary of State John Kerry about the Portland-Montreal Pipeline and specifically the use of tar sands oil, which is more difficult to clean up following spills than traditional oil and generates more carbon dioxide."

"The best term limit is the ballot box. I think we have an engaged citizenry and we can decide when people deserve to be reelected and when they don't."

Sen. Hassan has supported various programs to expand student loan debt relief. 

In a letter to Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, Sen. Hassan wrote, "As part of the upcoming negotiated rulemaking process, we encourage the Department to pursue policies that reduce disparities in the burden of student debt, simplify loan repayment, close donut holes in forgiveness programs, and improve the overall confidence of borrowers in the federal student loan system."
