Judiciary Meeting Here Fruitful

State seal

The meeting this week of the Wyoming Joint Judiciary Interim Committee is being termed a success by Co-chairman Keith Gingery.  Gingery says the group of legislators considered a variety of topics including sobriety programs, controlled substances, post-conviction relief, aggravated assault, and Title 25 mental health legislation.  In their consideration of residential treatment facilities, Gingery says the group toured Red Top Meadows south of Wilson.  He says the facility primarily treats children that committed sex offences.  He explains the tour gave the committee a look at how the facility is being operated.  Gingery says, “There’s an ongoing debate going on between the Department of Family Services and Governor Mead, and Red Top Meadows about continued funding and those types of issues.” Gingery says this was the first of several meetings that take place between legislative sessions, and final legislation will be drafted in future interim meetings to be introduced at the 2014 session.

  • My hunting dog has been pouting - September 15, 2014
    I finally got my dog out for a day of hunting last week. It was almost too late. She’s been pouting for months, and I realized a while ago it was because I hadn’t gotten her on a bird since last November. I figured it out when I took her out to get her tuned […]
