The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has been transferring management responsibilities to state officials in Montana and Idaho, but because Wyoming doesn't have a wolf management plan in place that FWS approves of, no such action is being taken in our state. The transfer of responsibility doesn't equate to a transfer of authority, however, so some FWS wolf program staff remain in place. The FWS wolf program now consists of only Wolf Recovery Coordinator Ed Bangs in Montana and Mike Jimenez, project leader for wolf recovery in Wyoming.
The Wyoming Legislature's Task Force on Utility and Tax Relief will meet Friday, Jan. 27 at 5:30 p.m. in Room 302 of the State Capitol Building in Cheyenne.
