Senator Romney celebrated major legislative wins that will bolster Utah’s role in our national security, hold China accountable for its grave human rights abuses, and help Utah and the West respond to the historic number of wildfires.
This week, months after Senator Romney’s legislation had passed the Senate, a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Games became the official policy of the United States.
Senator Romney urged his Democratic colleagues to find common ground on key issues to our country’s well-being, including pushing back against China’s slave-labor economy, ensuring parents have ample choices on child care, and passing responsible appropriations legislation.
“Our freedoms, values, and quality of life–protected courageously by our own men and women in uniform–are unparalleled. We are immensely fortunate to live in America, especially today. It is my sincere prayer that individuals and families across Utah and the country find joy in gratitude this holiday season. From my family to yours: Happy Thanksgiving!”
Senator Romney kicked off his week by joining his colleagues and the President at a White House signing ceremony for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, bipartisan legislation he helped negotiate to improve our nation’s physical infrastructure.
“Yesterday, the President signed our bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law! I am proud to have helped negotiate this legislation, which includes historic investments to rebuild our nation’s crumbling physical infrastructure.”
The House passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This bipartisan legislation is a win for Utah, as we will now be better positioned to meet transportation challenges, mitigate drought conditions, prepare for and respond to wildfires, expand broadband to rural communities, and fulfill critical water needs.
Senator Romney continued to prioritize listening to Utahns and advancing efforts that meet their needs. He met with several groups and leaders from Utah to discuss key issues related to our state’s economic vitality and climate resilience, and raised concerns about the crisis at the southern border with Administration officials.
While Washington Democrats frantically negotiated their unpopular social spending bill, Senator Romney continued to meet with Utahns to discuss how the bipartisan infrastructure bill, currently being held hostage in House, would benefit our state.
This week, while Democrats continued to frantically negotiate their unpopular social spending bill, Senator Romney weighed in on why the bill is the wrong policy for America–citing its harmful tax policies and negative effects on inflation.
As Democrats in Washington continued their chaotic, scrambled efforts to put together a reckless spending bill, Senator Romney remained focused on two of his top priorities: the troubling state of our national debt and the threat China poses to the global order.
This week, as Washington Democrats scrambled to find common ground on their enormous, partisan “human infrastructure” bill, Senator Romney made efforts to bring some of the most egregious components of the bill to light.
