Some environmental groups say they support a plan to alter bison hunting rules. The proposal by Rep. Keith Gingery of Jackson would end the once-in-a-lifetime limit on hunting cow bison and would drastically reduce the cost of nonresident licenses.

The goal is to get the bison population down to about 500, from a high of 12-hundred.

Lloyd Dorsey with the Greater Yellowstone Coalition likes the idea.

On the final day of budget debate, the Wyoming House of Representatives denied funding to try and remove some of those on the waiting list for developmental disability services. Jackson Representative Keith Gingery says there is a need to get people off waiting lists as soon as possible and asked the House to approve 3-point-five million dollars to make a difference. “The quicker you can get to a child at an early age, the better they are going to do," Gingery said.
