Senators Launch Senate Opportunity Coalition

Scott, Ernst, Lankford, Rubio and Sullivan come together to fight poverty

Washington – A group of conservative Senators came together today to announce the launch of the Senate Opportunity Coalition, a new initiative aiming to ensure every family across our nation has access to the American Dream. Senators Tim Scott (R-SC), Joni Ernst (R-IA), James Lankford (R-OK), Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK) have joined together in an effort to relieve poverty and ensure opportunity by sharing first hand experiences from their constituents, highlighting the issues facing low-income families, and working towards conservative solutions to make sure every American has the chance to succeed.

The Senate Opportunity Coalition also released the first of a series of documents today, entitled Paving the Path to a Brighter Future. Each Senator contributed a story from their home state, showing both the wide variety of issues faced by those seeking opportunity and the Senators’ commitment to finding solutions. You can read the entire document here.

The Senators wrote, “We are not looking at numbers, but instead meeting with people. Instead of waiting to talk, we are eager to listen. We look to take the lessons learned by those on the ground, grinding out the best living they can, and use those to power a new kind of solution…a brighter, more prosperous future.

Moving forward, we will continue to share stories like these and bring our individual solutions already introduced to the table. From these efforts, we will develop new solutions, refine current ones, and forge the path forward.”
