Energy Efficiency Issue

Wyoming Governor dismisses state-funded energy initiatives, argues it’s a local or federal issue.

However, after placing last in state rankings for energy efficiency, Wyoming's governor recently signed a letter to the Department of Energy, promising renewed efforts in boosting his state's energy efficiency in order to receive federal stimulus money.
