Laramie, Wyo. – In a press conference on her plan for job creation, Wyoming's lone U.S. Representative, Cynthia Lummis, said Bush tax cuts impact job creators, like small business owners. The Obama Administration advocates letting those tax cuts expire for the top 2.5 percent of taxpayers. That means families earning more than $250,000 a year would end up paying more. Some members of Congress have objected to grouping those earners with people who make millions.
Wyoming – The big question nationally is whether Republicans will take over Congress. In Wyoming, Republicans may add advantages in the legislature and among top elected officials. Wyoming Public Radio's Renny MacKay talks about what the political landscape might look like after the election and how that could affect policy.
Wyoming – One of the issues voters across the state will be deciding on is whether to either impose or renew a one percent sales tax for local government services.
