Handbills Are Free Speech Too

Courts repeatedly strike down City Ordinances that violate the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech. This is true even when cities try to justify censorship as a way to improve aesthetics, or fight litter. Even in Wyoming cities are willing to trample on free speech rights. As recently as 2013, the City of Cheyenne had to pay litigation costs in its futile attempt to censor political speech by its ham-fisted regulation of yard signs. The City of Laramie quickly repealed its own political yard sign regulations shortly thereafter.

Is The City of Cheyenne Open to Business?

The Cheyenne City Council’s decision about allowing a retail liquor license owner to sell his license to Cheyenne’s Sam’s Club is about more than liquor policy. It is really a referendum on whether Cheyenne is open to business. Perhaps not. The Council Finance Committee recommends that the Council block the sale. This is a signal to investors that the City is willing to flex its muscle to protect favored locals at the expense of outside investors.

Cutting Waste from the Wyoming Budget

As the minerals boom turned to bust, so did the revenue supporting big government in Wyoming. Now our politicians have a choice. Should they:

  • cut spending back to a level Wyoming taxpayers can afford;
  • use revenues hoarded in savings accounts to continue spending at ever higher levels until savings run out, or;
  • give money to private companies to magically increase state revenue?

The politically expedient choice at the moment appears to be: try to increase state revenues with a scheme known as corporate welfare.
