I'm tired of the federal government continually promising it will fix the roads and bridges. @SenMikeLee is reading Biden's 2,702-page infrastructure bill and explains a big problem: Will this spending actually HELP local communities?
Thank you @SenMikeLee for drawing attention to the ever-increasing growth of the federal regulatory state and its nearly $2 trillion "hidden tax" on American families and businesses in your recent "Dear Colleague" letter.
Read Senator Lee's full letter:
When Utah’s sons and daughters reported to Washington DC to protect the Capitol, they did so out of a commitment to duty and patriotism. Voting today to support the National Guard was a vote to protect and defend the constitution of the United States.
Opposition to Stone-Manning, @JoeBiden’s @BLMNational nominee, is not about Rs vs Ds—it’s about her obstruction of a federal investigation into a tree-spiking crime & lack of remorse.
Even Obama’s BLM Director believes her past “should disqualify” her.
All @EnergyGOP R's agree.

My heart is heavy as we mourn the loss of the great Mike Enzi. He was a friend to the west, a friend of freedom, and a friend of mine. Mike’s kindness and quiet dignity were worthy examples for us all. I pray for his wife Diana and their family. I will miss my friend.
The only thing more troubling than Critical Race Theory in public schools is Miguel Cardona mandating that it be there. These decisions should be handled by states and communities not the federal government. I’m glad to see Sec. Cardona U-turn. washingtontimes.com/news/2021/jul/…
The Lee-@SenRubioPress amendment would have ensured that the credit goes to taxpayers, and would have resulted in monthly advances of $290-$375.
If Democrats had broken rank, working families would be in a stronger position today.
"The problem is not America’s principles; the problem is rejecting them," @SenMikeLee
writes of critical race theory.
"It is precisely our principles that have bound us together and provided the basis for freedom, equality, and opportunity."
/11 Tracy Stone-Manning is a radical in policy and practice. Both her assistance to an eco-terrorist group and lying about her involvement constitute sufficient reason to reject her nomination to care for almost 250 million acres of federal land.
9/ Yet, after all of this, Stone-Manning lied in sworn testimony to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee stating that she had never been the subject of a criminal investigation, and that tree spiking was “alleged.”
8/ After Stone-Manning sent the letter, the FBI investigated the group. Stone-Manning stonewalled the investigation leading to years of delay. Once the government’s case against the group solidified, she traded testimony for immunity.
7/ And that the group had driven “five hundred pounds of spikes” into trees. Tree spiking is hammering metal spikes into trees to make felling and processing dangerous. Spikes can shatter chainsaws and mill blades and maim or kill lumber workers.
6/ The letter stated, “you would have to find me first and that could be your WORST nightmare, (sic)” and finished in, “P.S. You bastards go in there anyway and a lot of people could get hurt. (sic)”
4/ It defined “monkeywrenching” as, “unlawful sabotage of industrial extraction and development equipment, as a means of striking at the Earth’s destroyers where they commit their crimes and hitting them where they feel it most.”
