Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell today released the following statement after President Obama vetoed the Keystone jobs and infrastructure bill:
“It’s extremely disappointing that President Obama vetoed a bipartisan bill that would support thousands of good jobs and pump billions of dollars into the economy.

The rule was changed after that and now student athletes can play in the tourney even if they graduate early. Cliff Hagen was first team All American in 1954 with Frank Ramsey making the second team, both among the top ten players for the year. They went on to stellar careers, (more…)
