Ander Crenshaw, R-FL
"As he said, the SEC recently announced that issuers and underwriters of municipal securities are required to self-report violations of the Federal securities laws relating to representations and bond offerings. I understand the gentleman’s concern that this is a massive undertaking, and to identify all the series of bonds sold and to make sure that all disclosures are made accurately and timely is a huge undertaking."

Recognizing Dr. Jo Anne Mcfarland June 25, 2014

"Dr. McFarland started as an adjunct faculty member in 1970, shortly after the college was founded in Riverton. Under her leadership, Central Wyoming College has expanded its academic offerings and instituted distance learning programs. It has opened facilities in Jackson, Lander, Thermopolis, and on the Wind River Indian Reservation."
In Recognition Of Dan Banks June 23, 2014
Jackie Speier, D-CA
"Dan is a thoughtful and ethical man. He pursued a successful career as an investment banker in San Francisco and hasn’t left the city since. Dan fondly remembers raising money for corporate clients through public offerings, private placements, mergers and acquisitions. The act of raising money to fund an expanding business is a key step in creating jobs. Dan understood his role in creating opportunities for all. He points out that investment banking then was not what it became in the 90s. The deals and fees were much smaller, he says. “My favorite client, Nordstrom’s, initial public offering was $21 million, not the hundreds of millions one might expect today. After a long and productive career, he retired in 1993."
