Position on the Issues

Here are my principles for serving as a legislator:

we_the_people
Defending our Constitution
Defending the Constitution of the United States of America
…Our nation’s founding document was crafted by our founding fathers to insure the liberties given to us by God, and protect us from oppressive government practices such as those with which they had firsthand experience.
…I understand the importance of federalism. Unfortunately, some of our elected officials at the local and state levels have ignored or dismissed the Constitution and the notion of federalism; as a result we are less free and more dependent on the federal government. We should be upholding the 10th amendment and the autonomy of the states to reflect the will of the people they represent.Default: Read More

2nd Amendment
2nd Amendment
2nd Amendment
…Without the 2nd Amendment, the rest of the Bill of Rights would be nothing more than toothless suggestions for would-be tyrants and nefarious politicians.
…The Second Amendment is not just about hunting or target practice, although they are important benefits. It is about protecting our lives, families, and homes from threats both foreign and domestic. Our nation’s founders did not write the 2nd Amendment because the deer were coming! READ MORE

Religious Liberties
Religious Liberties
Religious Liberty and the 1st Amendment
…Our rights do not come from government, they come from our Creator.
…Our nation was founded upon Judeo-Christian values and they are the cornerstone of our culture and our laws.
…Christians have been witnessing an unprecedented attack on our right to freely exercise our religion by liberal progressives who use the government (including the courts stacked with leftist judges) to force acceptance of their agenda on us. Read More

Economy

Jobs and the Economy
…Too many businesses, large and small, are being crushed by the regulations of the EPA, BLM, FCC, and IRS. Unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats in Washington D.C. have been given (or have outright taken) the lawmaking power that is supposed to be in the hands of the U.S. Congress who are elected and accountable to “We the People”. If we do not rein in these out of control federal agencies we will continue to lose our good paying jobs in the energy, agriculture and manufacturing industries. Read More

Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)
Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)
Healthcare
…We need Health Care Reform and it must start with the full repeal of Obama-Care. Specifically, we need to open insurance markets across state lines, expand Health Savings Accounts, and make health insurance and employment no longer linked together. Transparency of prices, eliminating fraud, regulatory reform, and unleashing the free market will drive health care costs down. It has worked before, and it is how America’s health care system became the envy of the world before the government got involved. Read More

Public Lands
Public Lands
Public Lands
…There is still a lot of confusion and misinformation out there about my position on public lands. I have always and will always support keeping public lands public and would never support any effort to make them private. I hunt, fish, and camp like most people in Wyoming and our public lands are a treasure for our state. Our state land, national parks and national forests are part of our heritage Read More

Natural Resources
Natural Resources
Energy and The Environment
…Wyoming has been blessed with an abundance of riches when it comes to natural resources. Our state and local economies depend largely on the energy industry; therefore we must not kill the goose that lays the golden eggs. Instead, we must work to protect Wyoming’s energy interests and advance free trade of our energy to markets worldwide.
…Coal is still the cheapest way to heat our homes and power…  Read More

Fiscal Responsibility
Fiscal Responsibility
Fiscal Responsibility
…I oppose a state income tax for a number of reasons. It would have a devastating long-term impact on our economy by making it more expensive for local business to do business here and will make our state less attractive to businesses looking to relocate here. Our low tax environment is our competitive advantage over most other states, why give it away? Raising taxes is an easy way out for politicians who do not have the stomach or the backbone… Read More

Education
Education
Education
…House District 51 is home to some of the top schools in the nation. Here, we take the education of our children very seriously and it starts with our teachers who are dedicated, caring and hard-working

Military and Veterans
Military and Veterans
Military and Veterans Issues
…I stand with the Military, and am committed to honoring our veterans, and providing them the care they have earned.
…The mismanagement in the VA is unacceptable and unbecoming of America.
…Veteran homelessness is a tragic, but rather unknown problem in Wyoming. The VA system has failed our veterans and it is up to us to step up and take the lead. .… Read More

Law Enforcement
Law Enforcement
Law and Order, Criminal Justice, and Illegal Immigration
…I oppose allowing men into women’s bathrooms, locker rooms, changing rooms, etc. Women and children deserve the right to privacy and should not be used as pawns in some left wing social engineering crusade. In Wyoming, we know where to draw the line and this is a prime example.
…I will support legislation making “sanctuary cities” illegal in Wyoming. … READ MORE

Life, Marriage, and Family
Life, Marriage, and Family
Life, Marriage, and Family
…Family is the fundamental building block of society.
…Life is a valuable gift from God and it must be protected from conception to natural death.
…Marriage has always been defined as a union between one man and one woman, and it has been the cornerstone of societies for thousands of years. … Read More

In Conclusion

It is our duty as citizens to stay informed, stay involved in our communities, and to never let anyone take that God-given freedom away from us so we can pass it on to our children and generations to come. We need to hold our elected officials accountable for their votes. As your Representative I want to be held accountable for my votes and accessible to the people I represent. All of your questions and concerns are important to me and I would love to hear from you.
…For liberty,
…Bo Biteman
