Meet Our Speaker: U.S. Senator Susan Collins

When people in Washington want to solve a problem, they turn to the senior United States Senator from Maine, Susan Collins. First elected in 1996, Senator Collins has earned a national reputation as an effective legislator who works across party lines to seek consensus on our nation’s most important issues. Senator Collins has been ranked the most bipartisan member of the U.S. Senate by the Lugar Center and Georgetown University for four years running.

Senator Collins ranks fifteenth in Senate seniority and is the most senior Republican woman. She chairs the Senate Select Committee on Aging and the Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee, and also serves on the Intelligence Committee as well as the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Known for her Maine work ethic, Senator Collins has never missed a vote in her twenty years in office – more than 6,000 votes in a row.

Senator Collins is recognized as skillful legislator, which is one reason why Elle magazine named her one of the most powerful women in Washington.  Her record demonstrates significant legislative accomplishments in such critical areas as homeland security, national defense, disaster response, education, business development, healthcare, and issues of particular interest to our nation’s seniors.
