Falling off the Fiscal Cliff

An early warning signal started blinking back in October 2014 to alert Wyomingites about the effect of falling minerals prices on the state budget. The blinking has now turned into a frenetic flashing. The October revenue shortfall of $4.4 million for the 2015-16 budget now sits at  $222 million. As a result, legislators must not only reject new spending that would add to this deficit, they must cut the current budgets of state agencies.

Hong Kong’s Voting Rights — Lesson for Wyoming

Two news stories about elections and voting rights emerged in the press over the Thanksgiving weekend. One story is about the future of direct elections right here in Wyoming. The other story came from Hong Kong, where pro-democracy demonstrators have been protesting for the right to directly elect the Chief Executive by universal suffrage since September 2014.

Laramie has a Free Speech Problem

This article was first published in the Laramie Boomerang on August 10, 2014. 

The city of Laramie is quick to remind residents where they cannot place political signs. However, the city should announce that residents may place political signs supporting any candidate.

As written, the city’s political sign regulations functionally treat signs differently depending on which candidate the political sign supports. Such regulations more closely resemble rules dictators use than the American constitutional system of democracy.
