Wyoming's U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney said the Republican party in Congress isn't as divided as the media would like people to think.

But, she said, while on one hand, the Republicans have gotten a lot done, on the other, there are a lot of divisions in Congress. But she said she and Wyoming's two senators have a good working relationship.

Cheney said she's a member of the House Rules, Resources and Armed Services committee, and she talked about the United States military situation which, she said, is dire because of underfunding. Another issue that needs to be addressed, she said, is tax reform. She said there's a tremendous need to simplify the tax code. She said something also needs to be done so that the U.S. corporate tax is no longer the highest of any industrialized country in the world.

Cheney spoke during a Republican Women's luncheon in Big Horn, which was a fund-raiser for the organization's scholarship fund. Melinda Brennan, who chairs the scholarship committee, said the mission of the Republican Women of Sheridan County is to help women in need pursue further education after high school.

The scholarship award is intended to provide funds to a registered Republican woman who live in Sheridan County, who is 18 or older by April 1 and has received a high school diploma or GED.
