Legislature considers carbon capture bills

Cheyenne, Wyo. – A series of bills that attempts to make Wyoming ready to address carbon capture and storage will be debated by state legislators.

A house committee approved four bills that address some legal and regulatory questions, so that the state can move forward with addressing carbon capture.

Gillette Republican Tom Lubnau says the bills will protect Wyoming's main industries.
Lubnau says Wyoming has been ahead of other states in getting ready for carbon capture, but he notes that some other western states are catching up. The House may debate the bills Friday.
