Press Release

NASHVILLE – U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) today announced his IssueWatch project, a twice-weekly online newsletter dedicated to Middle Tennesseans interested in important congressional updates and other major happenings in Washington.

“Knowledge is power and it’s never been more important to stay informed,” Rep. Cooper said. “There are a lot of changes proposed by our new president, and it’s hard to keep up. Plus, it’s hard to know what’s real news and what’s fake. I hope Middle Tennesseans find IssueWatch useful and will appreciate the reliable, sourced material that we will be sharing.”

Sent Tuesdays and Fridays beginning today, the IssueWatch newsletter will focus on health care, national security, budgetary policy, environmental news and other issues of interest to Middle Tennesseans.

The newsletter will feature articles, infographics and charts. If recipients choose to read beyond the newsletter, they may click through to full articles; otherwise, the newsletter will seek to give an easily readable and shareable summary of essential news and facts for Middle Tennesseans.

Rep. Cooper’s office will continue distributing “Top 10 at 10,” a daily collection of recommended news articles covering a wide variety of topics. To sign up, visit this link
