Summer is a great time for a lot of things: fly fishing, family camping trips, barbeques, making s’mores and more fly fishing! It's also the time of year that many folks go on vacation.

Enzi meets with service members, military officials during Congressional trip abroad

U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., returned from a week-long congressional delegation trip to Poland, Italy, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Spain. He joined four other members of Congress. During the trip, the delegation met with U.S. troops, military officials and country leaders. 

 

Enzi: New rule will provide more options for small businesses to get health care for employees

Enzi applauded the Department of Labor (DOL) for releasing a final rule that will allow small businesses to join together to create Small Business Health Plans.

Enzi has championed the idea of allowing Small Business Health Plans, also known as Association Health Plans, for many years. He has previously introduced legislation similar to the DOL’s rule in the Senate and also held a hearing on this proposed rule earlier this year to discuss how the change could help small businesses lower the costs of providing insurance to their employees. 

Enzi praises legislation for helping veterans but says we need to think more about veterans care in the future

Speaking on the Senate floor, Enzi applauded the Senate for passing legislation that would help improve the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the VA Choice Program, but expressed his disappointment that the legislation was not paid for.

While Enzi thought the bill passed by the Senate would help improve payment to providers and give additional tools for the VA to resolve payment issues, he thought the Senate must acknowledge that borrowing more money to pay for this program is not an ideal way to honor our veterans.

 

Wyoming delegation highlights efforts to help state livestock industry

The Wyoming congressional delegation joined the Wyoming Stock Growers Association via video conference at its annual Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show, which was held in Riverton.

17 years ago, I met with the Buss family from Laramie. Last month, I got to meet with them again. Jarek is a U.S. Department of State Pickering Fellow and recently graduated with a master’s degree in national security. It was great to talk about all his accomplishments and future plans – and to look back at the photo we took when he was a young boy. See more
