Laramie, Wyo. – With high-profile Democrats about to descend on Wyoming, state party leaders are busier than ever.
Former President Bill Clinton and Senator Barack Obama will campaign across the state on Thursday and Friday, before the Democratic caucuses March 8. Meanwhile, party leaders have been juggling media requests and telling a surge of newly-registered voters where to find their caucus sites.
State party chairman John Millin says no one expected this much attention.
Billings, MT – The federal government has approved strict new water quality standards for coal-bed methane water. Montana sought the new standards out of fear that natural gas drilling in Wyoming could pollute interstate rivers.
Montana officials say the new rules are aimed at protecting farmers from poor-quality water produced during exploration for coal-bed methane.
The new rules were approved by the Environmental Protection Agency in a letter dated February 29th.
