Washington, D.C. â€“ U.S. Senators Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statements after President Trump delivered his State of the Union address yesterday.
â€œIn the last year, President Trump and Congress have achieved a number of impressive accomplishments, including historic tax cuts and an unprecedented effort to end unnecessary and burdensome regulations. Our efforts have helped create more jobs, spurred the economy after years of slow growth and improved the lives of folks across the country. And in addition to confirming Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, the Senate has been able to reshape the judiciary to focus on the rule of law by confirming 22 of President Trumpâ€™s judicial picks. There are still many challenges at home and abroad that we will need to work on together in order to solve. There are great opportunities that await us if we believe in our countryâ€™s enormous potential. I was pleased to hear the Presidentâ€™s thoughts on the challenges ahead and look forward to the next year and the continued success that we will be able to see if we keep embracing polices that put our faith in the American people.â€
â€œPresident Trumpâ€™s address tonight spoke of building a safer and stronger America. His speech was full of the same spirit of optimism and confidence I have heard over the past year from people in Wyoming.
â€œIn particular, I was pleased to hear the president discuss the need to upgrade the countryâ€™s aging infrastructure. Americaâ€™s roads, bridges, dams, highways, and ports are crucial to the nationâ€™s success. We need a robust, fiscally responsible infrastructure bill that makes it easier to start and finish projects more quickly.
â€œI will continue to work side by side with the president on ways to expand freedoms and opportunities for the people of Wyoming.â€
