"The only way not to think about money is to have a great deal of it."

   THIS WEEK'S POLL
As part of the deal to convince Magpul Industries to move to Cheyenne, the Wyoming Business Council, Laramie County, and Cheyenne Leads are offering millions of dollars in incentives. Laramie County is buying a $9.5 million, 185,000 square foot building, and leasing it to Cheyenne Leads, who is subleasing it to Magpul Industries. But Magpul will not have to make any lease payments for five years. Some say a deal like this is corporate welfare, and that governments should not choose winners and losers. Others say that companies like Magpul will bring jobs to Cheyenne and Laramie County, and the benefits are more than the costs.   Do you agree with these economic development efforts?



The federal Department of Energy is considering offering a $1.75 billion loan guarantee to back the construction of a plant that would convert coal to gasoline in Carbon County. Environmentalists say it is too much of a financial and environmental risk and would be a significant loss for taxpayers if the plant went under. Supporters say it would help Wyoming’s coal industry and create jobs.   Should the DOE support the plant?

Yes, we should join forces to defeat ISIS
30.0%

There are competing lawsuits over wild horses that live on 2 million acres of public and private land in southwest Wyoming. The Rock Springs Grazing Association won a court order telling the BLM to remove about 800 horses from the land. A coalition of environmental groups is suing to block the move, saying the roundup would violate several federal laws, and that it places the interest of ranchers above those of the general public.  Should the wild horses be removed from the land?

Yes, remove the wild horses
36.2%

No, let the horses stay on the land
63.8%
