Coal Alchemy and Corporate Welfare

A Wyoming love story

For thousands of years, alchemists tried to change base metals into gold. Today, this lofty goal rests unachieved, but its legacy remains. Now, instead of changing lead to gold, crafty alchemists look to change money from the pockets of taxpayers to their own, and governments seem happy to assist.

Senate File 122, referred to the Senate Revenue Committee on January 27, is very likely going to end up on Governor Mead’s desk. The purpose of the commission is to comprehensively review state revenue and expenditure in response to the mounting fiscal problems awaiting the state in just a couple of years.
