Wyoming News Briefs

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Occupational Safety and Health Administration is seeking a $155,000 fine against Sinclair Oil for a refinery fire that injured four workers in early May. The May 8 fire in south-central Wyoming was the first of three this year that have injured a total of seven workers. Sinclair vice president Clint Ensign says the company will correct deficiencies identified by the investigation.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Three Wyoming auto dealerships have been approved to sell natural-gas powered vehicles to state agencies. The three dealerships submitted proposals through a 22-state initiative to encourage the development of natural-gas powered vehicles. Gov. Matt Mead says having so many states involved in purchasing will provide an incentive for the private market to develop refueling infrastructure for natural-gas powered vehicles.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — A new report says Wyoming is among just a handful of states that have not cut funding for public research universities. In Wyoming, funding increased 62 percent per student between 2002 and 2010. Wyoming led the nation with nearly $17,000 a year in funding per student in 2010. The money all goes to the University of Wyoming, which is the state’s only public university.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Highway Patrol has ticketed a California truck driver who was involved in a fatal crash on Interstate 80 early Saturday. Troopers say the trucker clipped a semi that was slowing down due to a separate crash in dense fog about 15 miles east of Laramie. Another semi ran into the back of the trucker’s vehicle, killing the driver.
