Cheyenne, WY – The State Senate is set to debate a comprehensive bill intended to reform the state workers compensation system. The Senate Labor committee gave approval to the bill on Friday. The bill will increase cost of living payments to those on permanent total disability. But Senator Charles Scott worries that this will encourage some injrued workers to take advantage of the system and remain on long term disability. But Green River Senator John Hastert doubts that will happen.
Laramie, WY – The Wyoming Cowboys have won two straight games and defense has played a role in both victories. Head Coach Heath Schroyer was especially impressed with his team's effort on Saturday in gutting out a win against Texas Christian.
Schroyer says defense has been a key in helping the Cowboys when they have struggled on offense, like they did throughout the game on Saturday. He says the defensive effort needs to continue Wednesday when Wyoming travels to face Colorado State.
