Wyoming Liberty Group
Like it says in the Code of the West, or at least the one adopted by the Wyoming Legislature as the official state code of Wyoming back in 2010,
“Live each day with courage.”
Perhaps we should amend that to “Live each day with courage, unless someone gives you the ‘evil eye.’”
As the 2013 General Session gets underway today here in Cheyenne, the Legislative Services Office is quickly finalizing and publishing what promises to be hundreds of potential bills for consideration by our citizen legislature. I look forward to Charles Curley’s yearly Key Liberty Votes this spring (see past issues for 2012, 2011, and 2010), but in addition to those bills—ones that most directly relate to individual liberty and the limits of government—there will be plenty that display good and bad policy, and plenty of others that are dumbfounding. Although many bills have yet to be released, there are already some very interesting developments in professional licensing.
DENVER, CO – WyLiberty attorneys filed a brief with the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in Free Speech v. Federal Election Commission (FEC) in Denver today. The brief argues that the court should reverse a ruling by Judge Scott Skavdahl of the Wyoming federal district court that denied a preliminary injunction against FEC regulations that require Free Speech to register and report as a political committee (PAC).

- The Wyoming Tourism Board
The Wyoming Tourism Board is a Wyoming government agency that promotes tourism in Wyoming. Its role is to market the state for the benefit of the tourism industry and other businesses that could do their own marketing with their own money, but I digress. Although pretty much every government seems to think its role involves subsidizing the tourism sector, this type of subsidization is nothing more than corporate welfare and is a good candidate for real budget cuts.

On October 23, 2012, the Wyoming legislature’s Corporations Committee reviewed amended legislation designed to, among other things, extend the sunset date for the Office of the Consumer Advocate.
