SPEECH: Sullivan speaks on U.S.-China relations - March 24, 2021

Mr. President, I wanted to come down to the Senate floor for a couple reasons, but first I want to talk a little bit about what happened in Alaska last weekend--actually, a really important meeting between the United States and China, our senior diplomats, their senior diplomats. It took place in Anchorage, and let's just say the meeting was as frosty as the Alaska air. It was a tough meeting. The Chinese came out, kind of took a little advantage of being extra verbose in their opening st… Continue Reading


SPEECH: Remembering George P. Shultz

Madam President, as many of us know, our country is mourning the loss of a great man, a man who I believe was one of the greatest of the Greatest Generation. Yesterday, we all received the sad news that George Shultz, Secretary Shultz, died in his home in California yesterday. He was 100 years old. He just celebrated his 100th birthday in December. He was a man of great intelligence, of courage, of integrity. He exemplified service, what is great about this Nation, and hope for our country--no… Continue Reading


SPEECH: Honoring Alaska's Late Senator Ted Stevens

Mr. President, I want to add my voice in recognizing what an important day it is here. I want to thank the Senators from Alabama and Mississippi and, of course, my good friend Senator Murkowski. Many other Senators--the Senators from California, Iowa--all came to the floor already today to talk about this great American, this great Alaskan. I try to come to the floor about once a week, and I do a speech that I call the ``Alaskan of the Week'' to talk about an Alaskan who has done great s… Continue Reading

Mr. SULLIVAN. Mr. President, I wish to say a few words on the nuclear agreement that is being negotiated with Iran. I will start by commending the members of the Foreign Relations Committee, particularly Senator Corker, the chairman of that committee.

I know it was a struggle. We read about what hap… Continue Reading


Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) Maiden Speech

Remarks prepared for delivery: Mr. President, today I stand in support of the Keystone Pipeline project. As an Alaskan, I feel it's important to talk about this bill and the importance of American energy infrastructure. I live in a state with one of the world's largest pipelines. In 1973, after bitter debate, similar to the debate about Keystone, Congress passed a bill that led to the construction of the trans-Alaska pipeline system- what we in Alaska call TAPS. It almost didn't happen. … Continue Reading
