Earlier this year, Governor Mead’s office hosted listening sessions around the state to collect thoughts from the public on the second phase of the Wyoming Energy Strategy.

The governor’s office has now compiled the results of those listening sessions into a list of four separate categories of possible initiatives that must be narrowed down to create the final version of the state’s updated energy strategy. They seek your help in this process.

The strategy as it is can be improved to better safeguard Wyoming’s public lands, air and water quality, and wildlife. Please take a moment to offer your input, either by taking the four initiative-ranking surveys (one for each category) on the governor’s website or by writing an e-mail to the governor and his staff at energy.strategy@wyo.gov by October 30, 2015.

For the Wyoming Outdoor Council take, see our letter in which we urge Governor Mead to emphasize air quality protections, carbon emissions reductions, public health and quality of life among the state’s energy and environmental priorities.

Thank you for lending your voice during public input sessions over the summer and for taking the time to seal the deal in this finalization process.
