A majority of Wyoming’s voters think you can protect land and water and maintain a strong economy at the same time. That’s according to a new poll of attitudes throughout the Rockies conducted for Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Lori Weigel with the Republican polling firm, Public Opinion Strategies, also found near-unanimous support among Wyoming voters from both parties that national parks, forests, monuments and wildlife areas are “essential” to the state’s economy. Yet another survey topic shows that voters approve of the state Legislature’s decision to dedicate 200-million dollars to the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust. Trust Executive Director Bob Budd says that’s probably linked to the outdoors nature of the state’s residents. The report, released earlier this week, notes that the state is home to three top-10 US destinations for snowmobiling, top skiing destinations, and abundant camping and hunting opportunities. Meanwhile, the report goes on that voters responding to the survey support energy development on public lands but want industry regulations to protect land, water, wildlife and quality of life.
