U.S. Sen. Steve Daines addressed the Montana House of Representatives last week, touching on his role in Washington, his support for the Keystone XL Pipeline and support for the appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
Daines repeatedly said he and other Republicans in Washington are seeking less federal power and more states’ rights.
“Montanans are best at running Montana,” Daines said.
Daines opened his speech by applauding the “peaceful transition of power” from Barack Obama to Donald Trump. He said he presented Trump with a list of Montana’s needs, based on talks he had with constituents, and affirmed his support for the construction of the Keystone Pipeline. He also called for an end to the “war on coal.”
