Dems Blast Cubin Over Energy Bill

Laramie, Wy – Wyoming Democrats are blasting Wyoming Congresswoman Barabara Cubin over her support of the Energy Bill. Cubin says the bill will create Wyoming jobs and eliminate red tape for producers. But State Democratic Party Chairman Mike Gireau says the bill includes multi-million dollar tax breaks for the Coalbed Methane Industry. He adds that 44 percent of her recent campaign contributions have come from the minerals industry and the bill is loaded with paybacks for those contributers. Cubin says the tax credits should boost the Wyoming economy.
