(Riverton, Wyo.) – Republican U. S. Senate candidate Liz Cheney stopped in Monday to chat with the Fremont County Republican Women at their monthly meeting.
Cheney answered questions and recited her platform at the meeting, according to Sarah Kalbach, who took notes at the meeting. “She discussed the current government shut down and her view was that there is no compromise on Obamacare,” Kalbach noted. “She expressed a desire to limit the authority, size and funding of the Bureau of Land Management and the Environmental Protection Agency.”
In answer to a question, Cheney was reported to have said that if elected she would not go back to Washington to create more legislation, but rather to limit what was already there.
Kalbach said there was considerable discussion on the current administration’s stance on coal development. “Ms. Cheney said that she felt if they (Obama) won the battle against coal, it was only a short time until the government comes after oil and gas,” Kalbach reported.
The next meeting of the Republican Women will be November 4th in Lander with guest speaker St. Rep. David Miller of Riverton. The location is yet to be determined.
