Legislators Return to Capital
Cheyenne, WY – The 2005 Legislature convenes Tuesday in Cheyenne. Among the items lawmakers will be faced with is the creation of a voter-approved review panel to examine medical malpractice lawsuits before they go to court. There are also proposals to create a variety of trust funds, including one to pay for management of wildlife habitat and another for the University of Wyoming. Other issues include selecting a site for a new medium-security prison, preventing spread of cattle diseases, and the regulation of drilling where mineral and surface rights are separately owned.
