Cheyenne, WY – Some state legislators say they don't agree with Gov. Dave Freudenthal's suggestion that the state invest $50 million in the state's Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust Fund over the next two years.
Freudenthal met with members of the Joint Appropriations Committee today to spell out his budget recommendations. The Legislature will convene for its budget session in February.
Gillette, Wy – In a normal year, local hotels see business slack off during the winter months after a busy summer season. But this year isn't a normal year in Gillette. Hotels across Gillette are reporting few rooms available for passing travelers. Some of the pressure should ease when the Fairfield Inn and Suites and the Country Inn open in January and the spring, respectively. But that doesn't help visitors now. Hoteliers blame the booming energy industry for the full rooms.
