Mass. Sen. Warren Launches Statewide Tour, Discusses Flood Insurance

January 21, 2014

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is scheduled to participate in events across Massachusetts next week to discuss her agenda for the year and the importance of making investments that help build a strong middle class.

The Democrat’s “Priorities for the Future” tour will take her to the Boston area Tuesday to talk about making higher education more accessible and affordable, and expanding Social Security.

She will visit the South Shore to talk to constituents about flood insurance and her efforts to stave off huge flood insurance premium hikes.

She’s scheduled to travel to Springfield on Wednesday to mark the anniversary of the opening of her city office and to discuss investments in medical research and her push to double funding for the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation.
