Barrasso Hopes 2014 Will Bring More Productivity

January 28, 2014 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming No Comments
Sen John Barrasso

As the Wyoming legislature prepares to go into its biennial budget session next month, Wyoming’s US Senator John Barrasso again says the Congress of the United States could take a lesson from them.  He says the beauty of the citizen legislature in Wyoming is that just about everyone has a background in some in field of business and knows what actually works when it comes to law-making.  Furthermore, he says bills for consideration are required to be on a single topic.  As the 113th Congress moves into its 2014 activities after a dysfunctional session in 2013, Barrasso says activities of the US Senate will likely be colored by the upcoming elections.  He says that will include the efforts by the Republicans to take back the Senate.  He explains that this is the sixth year of the President being in office and that tends to be a time  over the course of history that the President’s party tends to lose seats.  Barrasso adds the Republicans will be looking to regain the majority in the Senate in the November elections. All in all, Barrasso says he hopes the Congress will be able to accomplish things this year that will help people get back to work.  Barrasso made his comments last week while visiting Jackson Hole – and he added that if Washington did things the way Wyoming does, things would be a lot more understandable and the country wouldn’t find itself facing things like the healthcare law which involves 2700 pages of content.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
