Governor Credits Research For Preble's Ruling

Laramie, Wy – Governor Dave Freudenthal says the investment the state has made in developing scientific data is the likely the reason the Prebles Meadow Jumping mouse is being de-listed in Wyoming. Freudenthal says he believes the research, which included D-N-A testing benefited Wyoming. He says they are using the same approach on Sage Grouse and other animals that might be listed as endangered. Freudenthal credits the legislature for their funding of the data collection program.
