Some people fear that President Donald Trump has been derailing some of the agendas of both political parties, but Utah Congressman Rob Bishop, R-District 1, is not one of those who have such concerns.

Bishop was a guest on <a href=”” target=”_blank”>KVNU’s For the People program Wednesday</a> and said many bills have been passed by both the House and the Senate but we don’t hear much about them because the main focus has been on Medicare and Medicaid issues.

“Many of those are simply trying to reorganize what we thought was an overstepping of the president during the Obama years,” Rep. Bishop explained. “A lot of it is simply rolling back regulations we thought were onerous or improperly done and in that I’m very proud in what Trump has done.

“Those are very positive things that have gone forward. A whole lot of bills have actually passed both houses of Congress and been signed by the president so far.”

Bishop says he will personally have bills, including one dealing with monuments, ready to address soon after the congressional break.

Bishop held a town hall meeting in Brigham City Thursday at Box Elder High School. Bishop will be in Logan on Friday where he will participate in a special ceremony recognizing the Cache Valley Transit District.
