Barrasso: "I want to get people back to work"

Posted: Updated:

A U.S. Senator from Wyoming says one of his high–priority focuses this year in Congress is combating unemployment.

Wyoming's unemployment rate remained at 4.4 percent in December 2013, while national unemployment dropped from 7.0 percent to 6.7 percent.

Wyoming unemployment dropped by about half–a–percent in 2013, but U.S. Senator John Barrasso says there's still a lot of room for improvement.

Barrasso blames part of the issue on unnecessary government spending.

"I want to get people back to work," says Barrasso.  "And specifically for Wyoming—that's fighting a number of the regulations the president is putting-out that's making it harder for us in Wyoming to use our resources."

Senator Barrasso says he will continue to battle against over–reach in government.
