Jane and I were saddened to hear of the passing of my friend Carl Levin. Our prayers are with his wife Barbara and the entire Levin family during this difficult time.
My full statement: https://t.co/5ovzgjmF1B
I’m proud to introduce bipartisan legislation to establish a deepfake task force at DHS to help solve this problem so that companies, tech platforms, journalists & all Americans can track & authenticate content to better separate the truth from the lies.
Deepfakes represent a unique threat to our national security and our democracy. Combined with the network effects created by social media, fake videos or pictures can travel around the world in an instant, tricking folks.
The bipartisan infrastructure agreement provides long-overdue investment in America’s roads, bridges, rails, ports & other core infrastructure assets. And it does it w/o increasing inflation or raising taxes.
