Wyoming Senator Gerald Geis, chairman of the WyomingLegislature's Select Water Committee, has announced the committee will meet on Jan. 13 at 8:30 a.m. in room 302 at the State Capitol building in Cheyenne. The purpose of the meeting is to consider proposed legislation for the upcoming 2006 legislative session on water development planning and construction projects.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposes to establish a distinct population segment of grizzly bears in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and surrounding area and to remove this population of grizzly bears from the list of threatened and endangered wildlife as it no longer needs the protection of the Endangered Species Act.

Prior to the hearing, an open house will be held on the same date and same location from 4 to 7 p.m. The open house will provide the public with an opportunity to obtain more information and ask questions on FWS proposals for a distinct population segment and delisting.
In addition, there will be an open house on Jan. 11 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Snow King Resort in Jackson.
