Senate and House to Negotiate Wildlife Trust Fund

Cheyenne, Wy – Despite some opposition the Wyoming House of Representatives gave final approval to a bill that sets up a wildlife trust fund. The bill as it leaves the House puts 15 million dollars into the trust and only allows 200 thousand dollars to be spent in a year. Several spoke against the bill which prompted Cheyenne Representative Dan Zwonitzer to say the trust fund is a chance to be progressive and save wildlife.
Riverton Representative David Miller does not believe the bill helps wildlife as it puts more land in the hands of government.
