CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A former director of the Eastern Shoshone Housing Authority has entered a not-guilty plea to an indictment charging that she converted federal money to her own use. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cheyenne says Joanne Lynn Seesequasis was arraigned in federal court on Monday.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s Oil and Gas Conservation Commission plans to seek public comments on a proposal to require baseline testing of area water quality before oil and gas drilling may proceed.

The test results can help to settle arguments over whether later drilling contributed to ground water pollution.
