The House Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday took action to spur energy development, create jobs and cut federal red tape for livestock producers, hunters and anglers.
U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis was instrumental in amending and winning committee approval of the Grazing Improvement Act, House Resolution 657, which she said alleviates regulatory burdens on livestock producers who graze on public land.
Lummis also cast votes in support of the Offshore Energy and Jobs Act, the National Petroleum Reserve Alaska Access Act, the Native American Energy Act and the Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act.
Lummis said the committee's actions are further proof that they are "Wyoming's Committee." She said she's proud of the work the committee accomplished and she's hopeful these bills receive similar support as they make their way through the legislative process.
All bills will now move to the House floor for consideration. You can watch highlights from the hearing at http://youtu.be/oXK7LVt2u_0.
