Freudenthal Advocates Wind Regulations And Expanded School Construction

Governor Dave Freudenthal addressed several key legislative issues at a news conference Tuesday, including wind regulation, school construction and gun policy. Freudenthal says he remains committed to passing common sense regulations for Wyoming's wind energy industry.

Freudenthal is asking the Legislature to restore school construction funding and fulfill a promise to Wyoming school districts. He argued it is a mistake to tie one-time construction funding now with ongoing school funding increases still several years away.

The Governor also said that he is interested to see how a proposed law at the intersection of gun rights and States' rights will work, if passed. Freudenthal said that he is comfortable with the proposed legislation, as he doesn't see it functionally undermining things like not letting felons be in possession of firearms and that it would affect a very limited universe of actions.
