A message from Senator Mike Enzi
 
The elections are over, the snow has started falling and soon it will be time to gather with friends and family to begin the holiday season. Thanksgiving is around the corner and I always look forward to the opportunity to reflect on what I am grateful for and give thanks for my loved ones.
 
My staff and I have summarized a few of the important issues I have been working on for Wyoming. Thank you for subscribing to my newsletter. More information is available on my Web site. I look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions or comments.

Enzi has positive post-election outlook for 2011
 
With most of the results of the 2010 election tallied, Congress saw a shift with Republicans taking back the majority in the House. “This has been an exciting election season where candidates and voters hit the pavement to get their voices heard. The results are in and my outlook for 2011 is positive and invigorated. People were impassioned when they went to the polls,” Enzi said. “We are about to start the New Year and a new Congress and I am excited to continue my work in Washington with both old and new colleagues to give the American people what they asked for. The new Congress needs to realize not every problem can be fixed with a new law, a new regulation or a new tax. Every problem isn’t a federal problem.”

Enzi receives small business award
 
Senator Mike Enzi received the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Guardian of Small Business Award based on his outstanding voting record on behalf of America’s small business owners in the 111th Congress. NFIB is a non-profit, non-partisan organization representing small and independent businesses. As a former small business owner, Enzi continually keeps small business interests in mind. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and we must protect them in order to continue to grow,” Enzi said.
