Wyoming News Briefs

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A proposal by Grand Teton National Park to turn a two-way road into a one-way road is causing alarm in Teton County. Teton County officials and others oppose the plan to make Moose-Wilson Road one-way. The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports they are telling the National Park Service it would be bad for tourism and traffic management.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead says Wyoming should consider putting less money into savings to pay for big-ticket items coming before the Legislature early next year. The Casper Star-Tribune reports that Mead suggests the state could tap into the roughly $160 million a year of state mineral tax dollars that the Legislature directs into the state’s Permanent Mineral Trust Fund.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A legislative committee is supporting a bill that would allow nuclear waste storage in Wyoming. Under the proposed legislation, the waste would have to come from a nuclear plant located in the state. Wyoming doesn’t currently have any nuclear power plants. The Casper Star-Tribune reports committee members say the amount of waste stored at the site would vary with the amount of waste generated at the facility.

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Two bills headed for introduction in the Legislature this winter would attempt to encourage more use of natural-gas powered vehicles in Wyoming. One bill would transition up to half of the state’s vehicle fleet to run on compressed natural gas by 2017. The other bill amends a state loan program to include incentives for vehicles powered by compressed natural gas.
