Laramie, Wy – A candidate for Governor says the focus in areas impacted by energy development should be on people. During an interview on Wyoming Public Radio Republican Ray Hunkins said he did not know what additional environmental protections would be needed in the Jonah Gas Field in Western Wyoming. But he knows where the focus should be and that is people. Hunkins is concerned that too much of the focus has been on impacts to Wildlife.
Hunkins is concerned that communities lack housing and some other resources. He praises companies like Encana for trying to work with the state and communities in reducing impacts from energy development.
