“I applaud the incredible work by Governor Bryant and the Mississippi Development Authority in continuing to demonstrate why Mississippi has a trusted reputation for business. Companies from across the globe recognize and have confidence in our skilled and dedicated workforce,” said Harper. “This is a great development for Hinds County and for the Mississippi Gulf Coast. These are good-paying jobs that will help strengthen Mississippi and will ensure that our State remains internationally competitive. These companies could have chosen to expand at other locations, but the fact that they plan to grow in Mississippi speaks volumes about our business climate.”

“The WOTUS rule is yet another example of federal overreach by the Environmental Protection Agency. WOTUS is opposed by many, especially our nation’s farmers, who justifiably fear federal regulation of their land. Additionally, thirty-two states are suing the federal government over the rule’s legality. The joint resolution passed by the U.S. House and U.S. Senate would void the WOTUS rule, ensuring that water regulation remains in the hands of the states where it belongs.”

“Since President Obama’s first address, Americans have been hoping that the seven years of promises for hope, change, and economic recovery were more than just rhetoric. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Tonight’s remarks were no different; a reiteration of failed policies that sounded more like a campaign speech than a State of the Union address.”

“It is not the government’s place to determine what a person’s religion requires, and the government cannot justify trampling religious beliefs when it has readily available alternatives to accomplish its goal,” said Harper. “HHS’s enforcement of the contraceptive mandate against religious non-profits exceeds its statutory authority. This administration continues to put themselves on the wrong side of our nation’s long and cherished history of religious liberty and tolerance.”
