As Christmas approaches, I want to wish everybody a safe and happy holiday season. I hope you are able to enjoy time with friends and family.
Co-Sponsoring Legislation To Reinforce Role Of Coal Industry Advisory Committee:
Last week, I co-sponsored H.R. 6187, the “Coal Council Certainty Act of 2021.” The legislation would codify the National Coal Council’s charter that the Department of Energy let lapse last month.
I am proud to join Rep. McKinley in introducing this important legislation to codify the National Coal Council’s charter and ensure that it continues to advocate for the affordable and reliable energy – as well as the jobs – that the coal industry provides. The Biden Administration’s decision to allow the National Coal Council charter to lapse so they can overhaul it in their radical design is yet another attack against coal. This bill will protect the NCC and allow the Council to serve its purpose on behalf of coal producers and energy consumers in Wyoming and across the country.
You can read the full text of the legislation here.
Pushing Back Against Biden’s Harmful Energy Policies:
The Administration’s reckless policies jeopardize our energy independence, while hurting Wyoming and other energy producing states.
I sat down with KGWN to talk about the PILLR Act — legislation that I’ve recently introduced to ensure states are compensated revenue lost.

Providing For The Full Security Of Wyoming & Our Nation:
Additionally, I enjoyed speaking with KGWN about the importance of providing for the security for our nation and defending against our adversaries.
I have a number of amendments included in the NDAA to ensure that we take crucial steps to modernize our nuclear deterrence at F.E. Warren.

Expressing Our Appreciation For Veterans & Active Duty Service Members:
Wreaths Across America reminds us that there is no better time to express our appreciation to our veterans and active duty service members than during the Christmas season.
Our office was honored to join Governor Gordon and Major General Porter for Monday’s Wreath of Remembrance ceremony.
Honoring Gold Star Families & Those Who Have Paid The Ultimate Sacrifice:
Throughout this season, our hearts are with the families of the heroic men and women who have laid down their lives for our freedom.
This week, our office attended a Gold Star Family tree decorating event with ornaments to honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
