Today’s edition of the Joke of the Day is all true… kind of!

   THIS WEEK'S POLL
The Wyoming Legislature is working on a bill that would eliminate gun-free zones in schools and government buildings. An amendment to the bill would allow local school boards and other elected officials to decide if their facilities should allow guns or be gun-free. Sponsors of the original bill say that defeats the purpose of the legislation and that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows guns anywhere in the United States. Opponents say the decision should be a local one.   Should banning guns in specific locations be a local decision?



The Wyoming Legislature is considering a bill that would increase lawmakers pay from $150 per day to $175. The cost to the state would be $460,000 per biennium. The pay raise would go into effect in 2019. The last time the Legislature raised its own pay was in 2005.   Should pay for Wyoming legislators be increased?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
38 states have legalized some form of marijuana. Now, two Congressmen have introduced separate bills in Washington, D.C. that would legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana at the federal level. States would still have the option to legalize or continue their own regulations.   Should the federal ban on marijuana be removed?

Yes, remove the ban on marijuana at the federal level
66.3%

No, marijuana should stay illegal
33.8%

The Canadian government is considering increasing insurance requirements for railroads and shippers that carry crude oil. Coverage would increase from the current $25 million to as much as $1 billion depending on the quantity of dangerous substances transported. In the United States, the U.S. Department of Transportation says the largest American railroads currently carry insurance of about $25 million.  Should the United States require railroads increase their insurance to amounts similar to what is proposed in Canada?

Yes, increase the insurance coverage for railroads transporting crude oil
68.4%

No, no insurance increase is needed
31.6%
