CASPER, Wyo. — Wyoming’s United States Senator John Barrasso appeared during both the Wyoming Senate and House of Representatives floor sessions on Thursday, Feb. 20.

“It is so great to back in the Capitol building,” he told the House. “The history and the heritage of this building is remarkable.”

“We live in this land of incredible opportunity and government can either create opportunity or crush opportunity. What is the right size of government? What does it do, what does it spend and what does it take?”

Barrasso made note of Wednesday night’s Democratic presidential debate in Nevada.

“Wyoming is in the cross-hairs, especially with our energy,” he said. “They were attacking natural gas last night.”

“We need all the energy. The world is going to continue to need it all. Energy is called the master resource for a reason.”

Barrasso said that traditional fossil fuels sources, nuclear and renewable energy sources will all be needed to meet the world’s energy demands moving forward.
