JACKSON, Wyo. — Wyoming Senator Cynthia Lummis has been appointed to multiple committees related to natural resources, financial innovation, rural telecommunications, and transport; all key factors in Wyoming issues.

Lummis is joining the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee; the Environment and Public Works Committee; and the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee.

“These Committee assignments give me an incredible perch to advocate on behalf of Wyoming families, communities, and industries,” Lummis said in a press release. “The Environment and Public Works Committee will allow me to be on the front lines in combatting President Biden’s misguided and reckless environmental policies that could bring domestic energy production to a screeching halt. Wyoming is well positioned to fight for our vast energy and natural resources – and the critical jobs and tax revenues they provide.”

Sen. Lummis previously served as Wyoming state treasurer. During her time representing the state in the U.S. House of Representatives, she served on the Natural Resources Committee; Oversight and Government Reform Committee; Science, Space and Technology Committee; and Appropriations Committee. After her time in the House, she served on the bipartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

“Limited transportation options and unreliable broadband are two of the biggest impediments to economic diversification in Wyoming,” Lummis said. “On the Commerce Committee, I look forward to working to expand rural broadband and addressing transportation needs for our small businesses and communities across Wyoming.”
