Earl Christensen, State Senator, Crook and Weston Counties As president ad interim, I call- ed the 40th Session of the Wyom- ing Legislature ~o order at 12 o'- clock on January 14. I was elected president and Dick Tobin of Cas- per was elected vice-president. Dr. ~Pete ~adsen of Sheridan is majority floor leader and Elmer Xinnaman is the ;ninority floor leader. I consider it not only an honor for me but also an honor for the counties I represent. I am the third to be installed from Crook County and ,the second from Weston County. Frank W. ~Iondell of Weston County was president of ,the Senate in 1893, l~oy Cameron of Crook Coun,ty was president of the Senate in 19 33, and Albert C. ;-Iarding was president of the Senate in 1961. I don't propose that we should turn everything back 76 years, but I sometimes think tha.t we ;night be better off if we only had the same number of laws on ,the books ~that they had at .that time. One thing tha~ they ,had though, that I think we need now, is that everyone took care of themselves end each other and did not turn to the government for help. On Wednesday, Governor ~Hath- away gave his message to the join.t session of the Legislature. lie ,certainly covered a lot of things in his message. In his trav- els over the state, he has called ,to our attention some of the things ,that people desire. I think it is now up to ,the Legislature to decide on just how many services we can afford. I think that in ;nost cases it would be cheaper for people to do more things for themselves instead of turning to government bodies for help. The governor's recommended budget is $6~,096,288 which is $10,322,144 below the various de- pa~tmen,tal requests. It may be cut further by the Ways and ,Means Committee. I .would hope that everyone could ,be satisfied with what ,they have for ~wo years, until an increase in indus- try can ~help pick u,p the tax load and avoid an increase in taxes of any kind. As in ~he past, I will welcome your letters of interest in various matters. I will answer only those letters that require an answer so as ,to devote more time to legisla- tive matters. My address is Room 237 a,t the Hitching Post or Senate Chamber, Capitol Building, Chey- enne, Wyoming 82001. My phone number at the capitol is 777-7678.
