The Majority Floor Leader of the Wyoming House of Representatives says that for the first time, lawmakers will need to think about the world around them when they vote on energy issues.
Gillette Republican Tom Lubnau says that markets are suddenly available for Wyoming energy and technology is a big part of this.
Lubnau says he was pleased Governor Mead mentioned thinking beyond our borders in his state of the state message, because he believes that needs to be a focus.
“Other places in the world are looking and seeing the standard of living that we have,” says Lubnau. “The thing that drives standard of living is energy usage. One of the keys to Wyoming’s future is looking to that worldwide energy economy and being a participant in it.”
Lubnau says there are plans to make Wyoming more of a worldwide energy player.
