In Cattle Call this week, I want to remember those nearly 3,000 Americans who lost their lives 13 years ago today. We are ever mindful of the terror threat and even now action against ISIS is the subject of debate in Congress.
Today is the 13th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States of America. By the end of this day in 2001 thousands of Americans had been killed by hijacked planes in a field in Pennsylvania, in an attack on the Pentagon, and in the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers. Then, on September 11, 2012 four Americans were killed in a terrorist assault on our embassy in Libya. Please keep all these Americans and their families in your thoughts and prayers today. We must never forget.
In Wyoming, water is our single most precious natural resource without which our communities and economies could not survive which is why I voted for H.R. 5078: the Waters of the United States Regulatory Overreach Protection Act of 2014, which passed the House. The bill stops the EPA’s rule to redefine the waters over which the agency has jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act. Without this legislation few, if any, bodies of water would be left to the long-standing and expert state management.
