Lummis Seeks Innovation In Budget

Lummis

The partisan battling over the federal budget continues today in Washington as the brink of the so-called “fiscal cliff” looms closer.  Wyoming’s US Representative Cynthia Lummis told Jackson Hole Radio News she sees the answer in smaller government, not in higher taxes – and that may mean turning over the management of some federal lands over to states like Wyoming.  Lummis says, “We can’t go on funding government at these levels unless we have massively more tax revenue, and I am opposed to having such a large federal presence.”  Lummis suggests allowing the states to manage lands currently overseen by the BLM and similar agencies while still retaining National Parks under federal management since they are, in her words “definitely a national resource.” Lummis says she would be open to a compromise solution if the ultimate package includes significant spending cuts through innovative ideas like this.

  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
