Wyoming senators introduce legislation to reauthorize Congressional Awards program
U.S. Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso, both R-Wyo., introduced legislation to reauthorize the Congressional Awards program, the United States Congress’s award for young Americans.
“The Congressional Award is a wonderful program that rewards students across the country for volunteerism and personal development,” Enzi said. “Every year I am amazed by the kids from Wyoming who work so hard to earn these prestigious awards. Last year, Wyoming students accounted for nearly 10 percent of all those Congressional Gold Medalists. I am proud to introduce the reauthorization of this program.”
“Senator Malcolm Wallop created the Congressional Award as an opportunity to recognize the initiative, achievement and service of young people,” Barrasso said. “This award isn’t something anyone selects you for – it is something you earn through your own perseverance and sacrifice. It’s been my privilege to witness the success of this program, both in Wyoming and around the country.”
Enzi applauds president for taking actions to strengthen retirement security options
Enzi praised President Trump for signing an executive order today that would make several changes to expand and enhance retirement security for workers.
Enzi highlighted the Administration's efforts that would make it easier for small businesses that are members of the same association to join together to offer retirement plans for their employees, but said Congress still has a role to play in allowing Open Multi Employer Plans (MEPs).
Enzi speaks with BookTV
Enzi talked with C-SPAN's BookTV about his summer reading list.
"No matter how busy I am, I try to make time for reading," Enzi said. "And I usually read a few books a time, adding up to about 100 a year."
