Cattle Call: Leading the Western ChargeSee More Videos
Wyoming, like many Western States, has only one vote out of 435 in the U.S. House because of small population. Western Members must band together for the survival of our western culture and way of life and that is why I have served as the Chairman of the 54-Member Congressional Western Caucus. This Caucus was born decades ago as a way for westerners to speak with one voice on the issues that bind us: local control, private property rights, energy independence, and economic growth. In leading the Caucus I have communicated western values to easterners and during my time as Chairman, Members of Congress from New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Georgia, Florida, and Louisiana have joined us. Only together are we able to bring up our solutions to keep the West the beautiful, strong, and prosperous place we call home.
