Cattle Call: Securing Wyoming Provisions in Interior BillSee More Videos
After several late nights, Congress completed consideration and passage through the House of the first Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act in seven years. This is the single most important appropriations bill to Wyoming. It covers the Department of the Interior, the Environment Protection Agency, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service and the Forest Service, among others. To ensure Wyoming’s voice was heard on this bill, Rep. Lummis worked as Chairman of the Congressional Western Caucus and Vice Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee to advance Wyoming provisions within the legislation. These include returning the gray wolf in Wyoming to state management, protecting our state’s uranium producers, rolling back EPA overreach, and securing state and local water management.

Public education is not the problem; federal control of public education is the problem.
