PAGE 6 THE SUNDANCE TIMES JANUARY 18, 1979 CAPITOL C OMMENTS State Senator Earl Christensen The 45th Wyoming Legi- Mature was called into sos- sion Tuesday at noon. The Sena~ President is Neal Stafford of Buffalo, Vice President is Bob Novotney of Kinnear, Majority Floor Leader is Don Cundall of Wheatland and Minority ;Floor Leader is Bill Rector of Cheyenne. I was ~ named as chairman of the Senate Agri- culture and Water committee and also placed on the Reve- nue Committee. On the House side, Representative Thorson is also on the Reve- nue Committee and Repre- sentive Simons is on the Agriculture COmmittee. This will certainly give our two counties good coverage on these two committees. I am pleased with the way that Marlene and Don are taking hold of things and becoming acquainted with the legisia- rive procees. The three of us i will be holding breakfast meetings on Wednesday momingo to coordinate our activities in the two houses. This past week Marlene and I received a resolu~on from the Crook County Com- missioners asking that be done to ease the problem of obtaining coal from the Wyodak mi~ by Reeerve DieU~ No. 10 users from Crook County. Marlene and I have both personally visited with Bud Westre of Wyodak and find that a lot of the trouble was caused by the cold weather and equipment problems that can happen to anyone. A letter has been received that they have been in construc- tion mode for four years in conjunction with the power plant. The coal handling construction will be com- pleted in early spring of 1979. They have spent approximately $150,000 for new facilities to handle the retail coal customers, this includes a full sized system from the "k" conveyor sys- tem and a new truck scale for weighing the longest trucks. ~It seems that in the future, Wyodak will be able to take good care of its customers. Senator Eddie Moore and I had an opportunity to visit with an official of Kerr McGee in relation to the problem of local people being able, to purchase coal. He is going to talk to some of his people and see about the possibility of making coal available for local use. If this can be brought about it would sure be a help to the people of Lusk and Douglas as well as the people from our counties. I have again introduced a bill to do something about ]~vc that has been noth~ ] but a nightmare for the various state agencies and state employees. My bill would cut down on the power of this department and its duty would be to assist and not to dictate and would result in a saving, of $780,000 for the bienium. So far our senate agri- culture committee has had very few bills sent to it. Most of the water bills have been introduced in the House. I have introduced a bill for the weed and pest committee that will have to come to our committee. I am sure that we will have to make many changes in this bill before we let it out of our committee. Saturday morning Mr. and Mrs. Don Porter from New- castle brought Blaine and Nancy to visit the capitol. I enjoyed having them visit and I would encourage any of you that happen to be in Cheyenne to drop by the capitol and say hello. Others that I happened to see during the week were Dick Bratton and Mr. and Mrs. Don Gose. Please feel free to write or call me at any time ifI can be of service.
