WASHINGTON, D.C. (WDAM) - This is a news release from the office of Senator Thad Cochran
U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, issued the following statement regarding President Obama's State of the Union Address:
"The President has shared his priorities, but now it is time for him to work with the new Congress on solutions to the challenges facing our nation at home and abroad. An improving national economy is good news, but it is not the result of the executive orders, new regulations or government mandates dispensed by the Obama administration over the past six years of slow growth. I am ready to work with my colleagues and the administration to protect our national security interests and improve economic opportunities for families in Mississippi and around the country."
