Public Records Remain Open

The Wyoming Senate yesterday rejected a push to restrict public access to information from state agencies and local governments, and stripped an amendment sponsored by Senator Bruce Burns of Sheridan that would have limited access to information used by public officials to make decisions.  Teton County Senator Leland Christiansen was among those who fought to have the amendment removed.  Christiansen says two amendments that would have compromised an open public process were removed on third reading and the measure is now on its way to the House. The bill as passed refines the definition of public documents to include electronic documents and requires records custodians to respond to inspection requests within seven days. That bill now moves to the House for consideration there.  Meanwhile, Christiansen says the Wolf Management bill passed on first reading yesterday with some minor amendments requested by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.  Those amendments clarify the classifications in areas involving Grand Teton National park and the Elk Refuge. The bill passed unanimously.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • 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 […]
