“If You Don’t Vote You Can’t Bitch"

My Buddy JJ, his nickname after his inherited brand, would be described by all who know him as the quintessential Western Man, capable, tough, reliable, solid, an excellent Hunter and Horseman, a man of his word, a good neighbor, a Top Hand. His face lights up when he speaks of time spent, or to be spent with his daughter. In the manner of many solitary men, he considers problems, and issues for miles of distance on horse back or while driving a truck. When he states a viewpoint it is always well thought out, he has explored it from many angles. One afternoon as we discussed politics as he and I do, our heads tilted into a mild late January Wyoming breeze, his comment on grumbling people and the lack of voter participation was the above quote.

Wyoming Judiciary Committee to Consider Two Asset Forfeiture Proposals

Earlier this week the Legislative Service Office released two draft bills written at the request of the Joint Judiciary Committee of the Wyoming Legislature. Each bill would amend civil asset forfeiture under the Wyoming Controlled Substances Act (“WCSA”) in distinct ways. The committee will consider both bills at its meeting in Gillette next week.
