From the Wyoming News Service
The Wyoming Range Legacy Act signed into law last year put protections in place for more than one million acres of hunting and recreation land in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. But oil and gas leases granted prior to the law are still in play. The Forest Service releases an environmental analysis of drilling plans this week.
The group, Citizens for the Wyoming Range, is holding a meeting Monday evening in Jackson. Dan Smitherman is the group’s spokesman. He says public comments on the Forest Service materials are expected to be numerous, and that may affect what happens next.
