The Republican Party of Black Hawk County gave the following statement in light of President Obama's visit to Cedar Falls on Wednesday:

"The Republicans of Black Hawk County welcome President Obama's visit today and thank him for highlighting the success of Cedar Falls Utilities in making Cedar Falls one of the most connected cities in the world. This is an example of what is possible when a community is allowed to forge its own future and control its own destiny.

We urge the President to build on this example by resisting any further regulation of the internet, reducing federal regulation of all services, and allowing states more latitude in their response to illegal immigration.

Further, we encourage him to sign legislation approving the Keystone XL pipeline which will strengthen the economy, create jobs, and make more successes like this possible."
