Wyoming regulators are considering 10,000 applications to drill for oil and gas in the state. The Oil and Gas Conservation Commission is prioritizing the list, to focus on permits that are ready to begin drilling immediately.   Should the state also hire more employees to get the permits approved more quickly?

Gov. Matt Mead has signed into law a measure allowing people to carry concealed weapons into churches and other houses of worship in Wyoming.   Does knowing that people around you in church are carrying weapons make you feel more safe, or less safe?

The Florida Legislature has approved a bill keeping the state on Daylight Savings Time all year round. The Wyoming Legislature considered similar legislation this year, and Colorado lawmakers took up the issue in 2017. Daylight Saving Time means sunrise will come much later in the morning so people will wake up in the dark for much of the year. Standard Time means getting up when it’s light, but having shorter evenings.   Should Wyoming adopt Daylight Savings Time year-round, Standard Time year-round, or keep switching back and forth?

Daylight Savings Time year-round

Standard Time year-round

Keep changing back and forth
