Tillis Calls on Senate Democrats to Support Law Enforcement and Pass the Protect and Serve Act
The Senate should take the lead and pass meaningful legislation to protect law enforcement officers, increase funding, improve training, and raise standards.

Tillis Co-Introduces Two Proposals To Prevent Democrats from Packing the Supreme Court
Their proposals are dangerous and would give them free rein to appoint radical judges who would legislate from the bench, threatening the religious liberty and Second Amendment rights of North Carolinians. We have had nine judges on the Supreme Court since 1869, and efforts to change the Court are not supported by the majority of the American people. I am proud to co-introduce these proposals to stop Chuck Schumer’s radical liberal agenda and maintain the integrity of the Supreme Court.
