English/ Español: Rubio, Colleagues Introduce Bill to Defund Ministry of Truth

May 3, 2022 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) introduced legislation to prohibit any taxpayer funds from being used to establish the Disinformation Governance Board at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
