Wolf Plan Surges Ahead In House

The bill to adopt a wolf management plan for the state of Wyoming made it to the floor of the House now, and it appears none in the state legislature want to risk another year of federal control of the animal.  Teton County Representative Keith Gingery says even a couple amendments he was proposing for clarification of the areas in Teton County where the wolf should see higher protection have failed to see support in the interest of expediting the bill’s passage.  Gingery says the Teton County Commission had expressed concern about the line for differentiating management polices being along Highway 22, but the legislature did not even want to consider that minor change.  Gingery says there is a strong commitment from the floor to not make any changes.  Another bill that sailed through the legislature, much to the surprise of many, was the redistricting bill. That bill is now on its way to Governor Mead for his signature. The legislative session is slated to conclude March 9th.
