“American Cowboy Day” Finally Passes
Written by Andrew-Rossi on August 14, 2017
After being delayed because of political fallout from the debate over health care, a resolution recognizing National Day of the American Cowboy has passed the U.S. Senate.
The resolution sponsored by Wyoming Republican Sen. Mike Enzi was blocked by Democratic leaders in July, failing for the first time since it was established by former Wyoming Senator Craig Thomas in 2005.
However, Enzi spokesman Max D’Onofrio told the Casper Star-Tribune that the resolution, along with other unanimous consent items, was finally passed last week. It recognized July 22 as National Day of the American Cowboy.
D’Onofrio said that it was nice to see the resolution pass despite its belated nature, but he said Enzi’s office was more concerned with recognizing the day itself than the final passage.
