Natural Resource Important to Wyomingites

Wyoming Range

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.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
