Tribal officials on the Wind River Reservation continue to seek answers after the Department of Energy announced that uranium was found in some residents' tap water. DOE officials announced last week that data collected in the fall indicated that four households near a former uranium waste site had levels of uranium nearly twice the legal limit.
Wyoming Democrats say they were mostly pleased with the governor’s State of the State message. But while they agree the state should be cautious with spending, they don’t favor reductions. House Minority Floor Leader Pat Goggles wishes Gov. Mead had spent more time on worker safety. Goggles says it is time get serious about the situation.
“We’d like to see more positions in compliance in terms of worker safety and work to change the culture of safety,” says Goggles.
