A State Cookie?

chocolate chip cookies

You know it had to happen.  Wyoming has a state bird – the Western Meadowlark, it has a state flower – the Indian Paintbrush, it has a state tree – the Plains Cottonwood, it even has a state dinosaur – the Triceratops.  It was only a matter of time before a bill would be introduced to establish an official state……cookie. The bill is enough to make even the Keebler Elves proud.  Sponsored by Laramie County Representatives Lee Filer and Kenneth Esquibel, and Senator John Hastert, the bill seeks to establish the chocolate chip cookie as the official cookie of Wyoming.  Filer explains that students at Goins Elementary School in Cheyenne wanted to know how a bill becomes law.  With the cookie bill, he says, “The kids will learn how to lobby and testify in committee – which is great to teach them young so they have a better understanding of the process.”  But why a chocolate chip cookie?  Filer explains the students learned from local cookie makers that the chocolate chip cookie is their biggest seller.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer.
