Cheyenne, Wyo. – Three of the major Wyoming Republican candidates for governor say they believe the state should join the multistate lawsuit challenging the recent federal health care reform law.
Speaking to a rally at the state Capitol on Friday, GOP candidate Ron Micheli and spokeswomen for candidates Rita Meyer and Colin Simpson all said they believe Wyoming should join with Florida and the other states challenging the law. Candidate Matt Mead didn't attend and no one spoke for him.
Laramie, WY – Some of Rocky Mountain Power's wind farms in Wyoming didn't produce as much wind energy as expected last year. The Utah-based utility says wind conditions were relatively poor in 2009 and it's not appropriate to judge the accuracy of projected wind energy for projects that have only been operating for a year or two. This information came out during Wyoming Public Service Commission hearings over the utility's proposed rate hike. The commission is set to deliberate and possibly decide on the rate hike Friday.
