Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet issued the following statement in reaction to the President's 2016 State of the Union Address:
"The United States has made great progress in our recovery from the worst recession since the Great Depression and Colorado has outpaced the rest of the country. Business leaders like Ronna Rice of Rice's Lucky Clover Honey in Greeley represent the best of our entrepreneurial and can-do spirit. Those traits will allow us to continue to lead the nation and grow our economy so we can improve the lives of many working families who are still struggling.
"We must also keep Americans safe. That means moving aggressively to defeat ISIS, continuing to hold Iran accountable, and deterring North Korea from further hostilities."
Ronna Rice, CEO of Rice's Lucky Clover Honey in Greeley, was invited to attend the State of the Union with First Lady Michelle Obama as a representative of small businesses.
