On Energy & Oil: Biden energy policy is pure unadulterated "bovine scatology"

Wyoming citizens know just how misguided the Biden Administration's warped and unwise pursuit of an agenda to limit domestic production of coal, oil, and gas is. We all pay for it in higher electricity rates, gas prices, and heating costs. As Governor I cannot be as blunt as my rancher core wants me to be. Let me borrow a phrase from General Norman Schwarzkopf and declare to one and all that the Biden energy policy is pure, unadulterated "bovine scatology."

On Energy & Oil: We're bullish on all energy; we can do even more with coal

Wyoming is bullish on energy, all energy. Despite the misguided federal government, there is just so much energy opportunity here in Wyoming. We need to capitalize on it. We can certainly do even more with coal. Innovation is happening in Gillette and at the UW School of Energy Resources. A vote for this budget supports those innovations with coal.

On Government Reform: Will never shy away from standing up to federal government

It is ironic that while the Biden Administration will not secure the border, they will press oppressive regulation on the West. Wyoming fights back to preserve our rights and our way of life using every legal and political resource available to us. I will never shy away from our responsibility to stand up to the federal government. Currently we have 39 pending cases before courts across a spectrum of matters protecting Wyoming's interests. We have not only fought back, we have won.

On Immigration: Illegal immigration is our nation's greatest threat

Illegal immigration is our nation's greatest threat. Last week, I spoke to my friend Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas, and told him Wyoming is fully behind him. As the federal government has lost control, or should I say given up control of our southern border, we have seen here in Wyoming drastic increases in drug and fentanyl traffic, as well as overdose deaths. Without effective border control, our security and safety, even here in Wyoming, is compromised. The fact is, we are now all border states.
