As Wyoming’s voice in the U.S. House of Representatives, Liz has been a leader in restoring our liberties and fighting for our constitutional rights.
Join Liz’s reelection campaign, as she works with President Trump to get results for Wyoming.
As our state’s lone representative in the U.S. House and an active member of the Armed Services, Natural Resources and Rules Committees, Liz is fighting for Wyoming, keeping her promises and delivering the results we need.
During the Obama Administration, Washington targeted our families, our industries and our way of life. Liz has been working hard to reverse those policies and undo the damage they caused. As a member of the House Natural Resource Committee, one of the first bills she introduced overturned BLM Planning Rule 2.0. This action prevented a power grab by the federal government that would have given federal agencies and international environmental groups even more authority over land use and resource planning in our state. Liz’s bill passed the House and Senate and was signed into law by President Trump. Liz also worked to use the Congressional Review Act to undo other Obama-era rules, including the Stream Buffer Rule and the OSHA Power Grab Rule. Liz introduced legislation to prevent moratoriums on coal leases on federal land without congressional approval, reform the Equal Access to Justice Act, restore Wyoming’s full share of our mineral royalty revenues, and defend the rights of our ranchers to their grazing allotments. Liz introduced the Gray Wolf State Management Act to prevent future court interference with USFW’s decision to delist the gray wolf. Liz also supported the Farm Bill to protect and strengthen programs for Wyoming’s farmers and ranchers. The bill included an amendment Liz offered to protect our ranch families from frivolous lawsuits denying their grazing rights on federal lands. Liz also worked successfully to defeat an amendment that would have devastated Wyoming’s sugar beet industry.
As a member of the House Armed Services Committee and Vice Chairman of the Emerging Threats Subcommittee, Liz has been proud to be a leader in ensuring Congress fulfills its constitutional obligation to fund our military. Liz served as a conferee for the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Committee, and voted in support of the NDAA, authorizing the increased funding our military needs to rebuild and repair the damage of the last eight years, including a badly needed pay raise for our troops. The bill also included provisions to support F.E. Warren, the Wyoming National Guard, as well as amendments Liz offered to plan for extended deterrence against North Korea, respond to New START treaty violations by the Russians, and set a floor of 400 deployed ICBMs. Liz also supported the Iran Ballistic Missile and International Sanctions Enforcement Act and the Hezbollah International Financing Prevention Amendments Act. Liz stood strong and supported President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the disastrous Obama Iranian nuclear agreement that paved the way for Iran to acquire nuclear weapons and allowed the regime to continue to pursue dangerous programs like their ICBM activity. Liz also cosponsored the National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act to support development of domestic sources of critical minerals to reduce reliance on minerals necessary for national defense that emanate from China.
Liz voted for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that passed the House and Senate and was signed into law by President Trump. This Act doubled the standard deduction for individuals and families, expanded the child tax credit, cut taxes at all income levels, doubled the exclusion for the estate tax, and will eliminate significant fraud by requiring valid social security numbers for children in connection with the child tax credit. Liz also helped to pass the Financial CHOICE Act to repeal Dodd-Frank, the Obama-era regulatory overreach, which has strangled our local and community banks and financial institutions. Liz also cosponsored the National Right-to-Work Act, to protect the vitality of the American workforce and establish a national Right-to-Work law.
Liz voted for the American Health Care Act to repeal Obamacare and replace it with patient-centered solutions to drive down costs and improve the quality of care. Unfortunately, the Senate failed to pass this legislation. The House continued to work on a number of individual bills to help repair the damage done by Obamacare. These included, repealing the Obamacare individual mandate as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The House also passed legislation that would allow the purchase of insurance across state lines, address the crucial issue of tort reform, allow small businesses to pool resources and form nationwide health insurance associations, and require members of congress to live under the laws we pass. Liz also voted for and was a cosponsor of the Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act to repeal the “death panels” set up under Obamacare.
Liz cosponsored the No Taxpayer for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act to ensure Obamacare doesn’t provide taxpayer funds for abortions. As a member of the Rules Committee, Liz was honored to manage the passage of the Rule for this legislation and all pro-life bills on the House floor. Liz also managed the Rule for and was a cosponsor of H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, that prohibits abortions after 20 weeks. Liz has also cosponsored the Life at Conception Act, designating that life begins at conception, and the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act, a bill that improves penalties for physicians that kill babies that have survive attempted abortions.
Liz cosponsored and voted in favor of Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act that passed the House. This bill protects concealed carry rights of law-abiding citizens as they cross state lines. Liz also helped to pass legislation ensuring veterans’ Second Amendment rights are protected.
Liz believes that we must secure our border and ensure that our immigration laws are enforced. Liz believes we need to build a border wall and end amnesty and sanctuary cities. Liz voted against amnesty and liberal Democratic attempts to abolish ICE. Liz cosponsored the Refugee Resettlement National Security Act requiring the Comptroller General to do a full assessment of the costs of refugees to federal, state and local governments. Liz cosponsored the Criminal Alien Deportation Enforcement Act, a bill that withholds foreign aid from countries that refuse to take back criminal aliens; and she voted for the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act to strengthen current law to combat dangerous sanctuary policies that shield unlawful and immigrants from enforcement. Liz also voted for Kate’s Law to protect public safety by enhancing penalties for deported felons who return to the United States.
Liz believes the federal government must provide our veterans with the care they deserve and have earned. Liz voted to increase the authority of the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to hire and retain physicians and other employees of the Department of Veterans Affairs, and also supported the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act providing the Secretary with the authority to fire negligent employees. Liz also voted to pass the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act, a bill to preserve and protect veterans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and she voted for crucial reforms for the VA Choice program.
Liz has been a proven constitutional conservative and an advocate for a strong America. In Congress, she is a fighter who works for Wyoming and with President Trump to reduce the size of government and roll back harmful regulations that hurt our state’s economy.LEARN MORE ABOUT LIZ
