Doug Samuelson en Nicholas Backs Off Of Aquifer Bill <p>Senator Phil Nicholas has decided to remove himself from sponsoring a funding request for the Laramie Aquifer leaving Laramie Democrat Chris Rothfuss to oversee that effort.&nbsp; Nicholas was accused of having a conflict of interest in brokering a land deal for his client, former legislator Doug Samuelson.&nbsp; The proposal was to have the state buy Samuelson&rsquo;s land and turn it into a state park.&nbsp; Laramie citizens then could have access to the property and it would prevent development from occurring above the Laramie aquifer.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 14 Feb 2012 23:37:13 +0000 Bob Beck 19580 at Nicholas Backs Off Of Aquifer Bill
