- Encana seeks to renew soil treatment permit - RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — Encana Oil & Gas USA is applying to renew a permit for a soil treatment facility near Pavillion and for a second land farm in the Moneta Divide area. Wyoming’s Department of Environmental Quality is overseeing the approval processes for the two plants that clean hydrocarbons out of the soil. The land farm Pavillion has in use is a voluntary remediation program. Encana is cleaning up sites in the natural gas field near that town, especially pits that contained waste fluids from drilling gas wells. The company excavates contaminated soil from those sites and cleans it at the Pavillion-area land farm. A new permit would last for eight years.
- Wyoming governor signs bill to extend vehicle fee deadline - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Beginning next year, Wyoming residents will have more time to pay registration fees and taxes on vehicles they purchase. Gov. Matt Mead has signed legislation passed by the Legislature that was sponsored by Democratic Rep. Ken Esquibel, of Cheyenne. The legislation extends the due date to pay registration fees on just purchased new or used vehicles to 60 days. It is currently 45 days. Vehicle purchasers also have 65 days to pay vehicle taxes. It is currently 50 days. The law takes effect Jan. 1, 2016.
- Wyo. Senate president says vote coming on veto override - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Senate President Phil Nicholas says he expects the Senate to vote Friday whether to override Gov. Matt Mead’s veto of a bill that would make it harder for police and prosecutors to seize property from people they believe have been involved in drug crimes. Mead last week vetoed Senate bill that would have required a person be convicted of a drug felony before their property could be seized by the state. Under the current law, police may confiscate property including cash if they believe they are linked to a crime. Mead, a former U.S. Attorney for Wyoming, said he doesn’t believe Wyoming has seen abuses of its existing forfeiture law that would justify changing it. An override would require two-thirds of members in both the Senate and the House.
- House committee advances bill for $25/day pay increase - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A House committee has endorsed a bill that would give lawmakers a $25-a-day raise, starting in 2019. Senate File 116 was endorsed Thursday by the House Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Committee. The bill, which previously passed the Senate, now heads to the House floor. Lawmakers currently earn $150 a day. The bill would increase that to $175. The higher pay wouldn’t go into effect until Jan. 7, 2019, since a provision in the Wyoming Constitution states sitting lawmakers cannot fix their pay unless re-elected. Bill sponsor Republican Sen. Wayne Johnson, of Cheyenne, says lawmakers have typically received a pay increase once a decade to keep up with inflation. If the bill becomes law, 14 years will have passed since the last increase.
- Legislature approves science standards bill - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Legislature has approved a bill that allows the state Board of Education to consider the Next Generation Science Standards in crafting new state K-12 science standards. House Bill 23 now goes to Gov. Matt Mead. The Next Generation Science Standards are opposed by some in Wyoming over how the standards handle human contributions to global climate change. Fossil fuels extraction is a top industry in the state’s economy. Last year, the Legislature prohibited the state Board of Education from considering the Next Generation Science Standards. The bill that the Legislature passed Thursday included some drama when the Senate version required the board to enact standards “unique” to Wyoming. Lawmakers settled on requiring final state standards that “promote excellence,” but that the board use any other standards as a template.
- Court arguments Monday in Wyoming wild horse roundup case - CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A federal judge is scheduled to hear arguments Monday in a lawsuit over a recent roundup of hundreds of wild horses from the open range in western Wyoming. U.S. District Judge Nancy Freudenthal will hear arguments at the University of Wyoming law school in Laramie. Last fall, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management rounded up 1,263 wild horses from areas east and south of Rock Springs. The roundup occurred after federal judges refused to stop them at the request of wild horse advocates. The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign and others continue to claim in a lawsuit against the federal government the roundup violated federal law. The government maintains the BLM followed the law in rounding up the horses at the request of ranchers.
