Wyoming was the first state in the nation to develop a comprehensive energy strategy with the release of Leading the Charge, Wyoming’s Action Plan for Energy, Environment and Economy in 2013. More than three-fourths of the initiatives identified, are complete.
In the August issue of the Wyoming Business Report, Wyoming State Bar Association President-Elect John Masterson wrote about why the plan is important for business. You can read that here.
This year, Governor Mead has worked with people across Wyoming to update the strategy.
On Monday, the Governor’s office held its final public meeting. At this meeting all of the ideas identified through the previous meetings were presented. If you were unable to attend, you can view the meeting at the livestream links here:

Attending the meetings were not the only opportunity to provide feedback on the plan revisions. The new initiatives are posted on the Governor’s website at governor.wyo.gov, where members of the public can provide further comment and rank the initiatives presented.
Comments and ranking of initiatives will be available through October 30th, 2015. Upon completion of this final public comment period, Gov. Mead will choose which initiatives will be incorporated into the Energy Strategy.
