McCaskill Stresses Commitment to Bipartisan Solutions With Aging Organizations

Senator outlines Aging Committee priorities to Leadership Council of Aging Organizations


WASHINGTON – Addressing the leadership of dozens of the nation’s most important senior advocacy groups, U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill today stressed the bipartisan cooperation with Special Committee on Aging Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) and their plan to work together to fight for older Americans.

“The Aging Committee is a good example of a great bipartisan relationship—Susan Collins and I have worked together countless times since I came to the Senate,” said McCaskill, the top Democrat on the Senate Special Committee on Aging. “We are joined at the hip. There is nothing but cooperation and a collective effort to do the best job we can for America’s seniors.”

McCaskill outlined her priorities to the Council, including her enduring commitment to preventing scams that target America’s seniors and aggressively prosecuting those responsible for defrauding older Americans. She also pointed to recent committee hearings addressing retirement security and increased Alzheimer’s funding, as issues that she will continue to pursue in the future.
