    Senate Passes Bipartisan Energy Bill that Includes Ayotte's "Better Buildings Act"

    "I'm pleased the Senate finally passed this commonsense legislation, which would increase energy efficiency across the public and private sectors," said Ayotte." Commercial tenants have an essential role to play in managing energy efficient buildings, and this bill includes a provision I coauthored to incentivize commercial tenants to voluntarily implement cost-effective measures to responsibly reduce energy consumption."

    Ayotte Statement on Passage of Senate Budget Resolution

    "I ran for the Senate to get our nation's fiscal house in order and to make sure we leave our country better off for our children and grandchildren. Putting our nation back on a fiscally responsible path requires us to make difficult decisions - and the people of New Hampshire elected me to make those decisions. While I don't like everything in this budget, I believe it's important for us to make tough choices and move forward with what is ultimately a fiscally responsible blueprint for our nation. This framework balances the budget in 10 years, provides our best opportunity to address Obamacare, preserves retirement programs, and does not raise taxes. It also contains a provision I worked to include that restores funding for our national defense at a time when we face growing threats from ISIS and other terrorist groups. This funding will help protect our servicemen and women and keep our country safe."

    Ayotte Urges Administration to Prevent Taliban Five Terrorists from Returning to Battlefield

    "With Americans continuing to serve in Afghanistan, it would be unacceptable to allow the Taliban Five to return to the battlefield there, especially since the administration could have continued to hold these individuals in Law of War detention," said Ayotte. "No American should ever have to confront a former Guantanamo detainee on the battlefield. Based on disturbing public reports regarding the Taliban Five, I am concerned that the administration is not doing enough to prevent that from happening."

    NH National Guard Member from Littleton Joins Senator Ayotte for Joint Address by Afghan President Ghani

    "I was honored to welcome SFC Austin to Capitol Hill, and I deeply appreciate his selfless service to our country," said Ayotte, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. "SFC Austin and the citizen soldiers of the New Hampshire National Guard have played a critical role in protecting the security gains we have made in Afghanistan and ensuring that it does not again become a training ground for terrorists to launch attacks against us and our allies."

    Ayotte Statement Regarding Announcement of Charges Against Sergeant Bergdahl

    "The charges against Sergeant Bergdahl are serious, and I trust that our military justice system will process this case in an appropriate and fair manner. I remain deeply concerned by the Obama administration's dangerous decision to release the Taliban 5 without proper congressional notification and without sufficient assurances that they will not return to the fight against America and our allies, which I believe endangers U.S. national security interests."

    Rubio, Shaheen, Ayotte Introduce Resolution Urging IRS to Provide Taxpayers with Printed Materials Needed to File Their Taxes

    "With almost twenty percent of Granite Staters personally filing paper returns, the IRS' decision not to provide printed tax forms defies common sense and places an undue burden on low-income and elderly taxpayers in our state," said Ayotte. "I am very concerned that this will leave many New Hampshire residents with no means to obtain the forms necessary to complete their tax returns, and I urge the IRS to correct this problem immediately."

    Ayotte Urges Armed Services Committee Leaders to Authorize Funding for Virginia Class Submarines

    Continuing her efforts to sustain America's naval power and advocate for Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) this week urged leaders of the Senate Armed Services Committee to authorize the Department of the Navy's request for the procurement of two Virginia Class attack submarines per year from Fiscal Years 2016 to 2020. In a letter to Chairman John McCain (R-AZ) and Ranking Member Jack Reed (D-RI), Ayotte underscored the importance of attack submarines to U.S. national security and expressed concern regarding the declining size of the nation's attack submarine fleet in the coming years.

    Ayotte, McConnell, Isakson Reintroduce the Family Friendly and Workplace Flexibility Act

    "Working families in the private sector should have the same options to enter into the kind of flexible work arrangements that are currently available to public sector workers," said Senator Ayotte. "This legislation would enable employees to work with their employers to enter into voluntary agreements that would allow greater flexibility for workers who are looking to better balance their work-life demands."

    "This vote reaffirms the Senate's strong bipartisan support for giving veterans, who have served and sacrificed so much for our country, the choice to receive non-VA care closer to home," said Ayotte. "My amendment will help protect the Choice Card program and make sure the administration properly implements the program as Congress intended so that veterans in New Hampshire and across our nation can receive timely, quality care."
