This fall, Congress voted to severely limit the amount the Cowboy State gets.</p><p>Henrichsen says Lummis failed in her duties because she failed to stop the measure.</p> Fri, 02 Nov 2012 05:57:57 +0000 Willow Belden 32230 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Henrichsen attacks Lummis for losing AML funds
