U.S. Senator John Barrasso also released a statement saying Wyoming and America lost an extraordinary man. U.S. Senator Malcolm Wallop was a dedicated public servant and a great legislator. He leaves a proud legacy of a Wyoming Senator who solved problems and initiated great solutions. He set a high bar for public service and all of Wyoming is grateful”.
U.S Representative Cynthia Lummis said “It is with deep sadness that Al and I learned of Senator Wallop’s death. I first met Senator Wallop when he was a Wyoming legislator briefing college students on legislative issues. I was one of those college students. Senator Wallop’s knowledge of conservation and public lands issues was impressive then, and only grew over the years. Wyoming owes Senator Wallop a debt of gratitude for the way he spoke for Wyoming people during the years when the battle cry was, ‘Cattle free by ’93,’ a slogan used by anti-public lands groups.
