Wyoming Legislature update – Jan. 18, 2019 (posted 1/18/19)
Albert Sommers, House District #20 Representative
Friday, January 18, 2019
Hello Sublette County, this is Albert Sommers reporting to you from the House of Representatives on Friday, January 18. The Joint Appropriations committee has worked tirelessly to craft a supplemental budget this session. Members have completed their initial work and committee staff will finalize the draft bills for introduction next week.

Today, the House considered 11 bills on second reading. One, HB0075 - Background check requirements-professional licensure, was laid back. The other 10 passed, including:
HB0021 – Election Readiness Account
HB0073 – Use of dogs – recovery of killed or wounded big game
HB0081 – Omnibus water bill – planning
HB0130 – Wyoming Cowboy Legacy Week

During the morning session, nine bills passed the House on third reading and will be delivered to the Senate for consideration. Several bills to highlight include:
HB0002 – Regulation of Hunting Methods
HB0044 – Expungement of juvenile court records
HB0054 - Federal natural resource policy account-amendments
HB0062 - Wyoming Utility Token Act-property amendments
HB0078 - Education major maintenance funding

The House Committee of the Whole met during the afternoon session to tackle important issues including education, local governments, and shared parenting. Rigorous debate surrounded HB0024 – National Board Teacher Certification and whether changes would be made to the incentive program for teachers to become National Board Certified Teachers; ultimately passing. Additionally, HB0101 - Joint powers boards-natural gas service, allows for the formation of joint powers boards to create and operate natural gas systems.

The 65th Legislature General Session will stand adjourned until Tuesday, January 22, 2019 in observance of Martin Luther King Day.

Nordic ski trail grooming report – Jan. 18, 2019 (posted 1/18/19)
Mike Looney, Groomer, Sublette County Recreation Board
Friday, January 18, 11:00AM report:
Half Moon Tie-In, Kelly Park, Kelly Tie-In, Lower Surveyor, the perimeter of Upper Surveyor, Tree Loop, Moose Ridge, and Old Road Trail all groomed this morning. About ½ foot of new snow. 30F degrees. Still a few moose hanging out up above. The road and parking lot are plowed. As always, please pick up after your pets and pitch droppings off the groomed ski trails – it really helps to keep the trails clean.

Wyoming Legislature updates – Jan 14-17, 2019 (posted 1/18/19)
Albert Sommers, House District #20 Representative
Thursday, January 17, 2019
Hello Sublette County, this is Albert Sommers with an update from the day in the House of Representatives. Today, the House considered and passed 9 bills on second reading, including:
HB0002 - Regulation of hunting methods
HB0044 – Expungement of Juvenile Court Records
HB0054 - Federal natural resource policy account-amendments
HB0078 - Education major maintenance funding.

Thirteen bills passed the House and will be delivered to the Senate for consideration. Bills of note include my bill on shed antlers and horns, HB0012. Other bills include
HJ0001 – Wyoming Support for Delisting the Grizzly Bear
HB0006 – Physical Therapy-scope of practice revisions
HB0028 – Regulation of shed antlers and big game horn collection
HB0066 – Lodging Tax
Read a statement from the House Majority on the Lodging Tax here.

The House Committee of the Whole considered a number of bills.
HB0073 – "Use of dogs-recovery of killed or wounded big game" was discussed. The bill, applying to game and fish, would allow a person to use a leashed blood-trailing dog to help recover a killed or wounded big game animal. This bill was passed within the committee over voice vote, bringing our statutes close to those of our neighboring states.
HB0021 – "Election Readiness Account" was also discussed. The bill creates a permanent account through which counties may purchase updated election equipment. An amendment was passed raising the amount from $7.5 million to $15 million, and after much debate, the bill passed.

The Committee of the Whole also addressed bills pertaining to special electric utility agreements, rights of way communications services, wage garnishment, and Series LLCs among others.

Thank you

Wednesday, January 16, 2019
Hello Sublette County, this is Albert Sommers checking in from the floor of the House of Representatives. I have been spending a great deal of time in the Appropriations Committee and today we began to accept or decline recommendations from both Governors Mead and Gordon. The Committee will have made final motions by Friday, but it will take staff a week to write the budget.

This morning, the House considered and passed 13 bills on second reading including my bill HB0012 - Shed Antlers and Horn. Several other bills of interest include:
HB0006 – Physical Therapy-scope of practice revisions
HB0028 – Regulation of Shed Antlers and Big Game Horn Collection
HB0066 – Lodging Tax
HJ0001 – Wyoming Support for delisting the grizzly bear

Several additional bills passed the House and will be delivered to the Senate for consideration. These bills included:
HB0003 - Board of outfitters and guides-civil penalties. Passed 44-7-9-0-0
HB0013 - Jury procedure amendments. Passed 51-0-9-0-0
HB0041 - UW board of trustees-chairman. Passed 51-0-9-0-0
HB0069 - Collection of sales tax by marketplace facilitators. Passed 42-9-9-0-0

The House Committee of the Whole considered a number of interesting bills including HB0002 - Regulation of hunting methods. This bill authorizes the Wyoming Game and Fish to regulate new and emerging technologies being utilized in hunting. I spoke in support of this bill because the Game and Fish needs the ability to be responsive to ever changing technologies and balance the need for fair chase of game. Changes to hunting regulations will still be debated in a public forum with public input via the Game and Fish Commission. The bill passed committee of the whole on a voice vote. There may be amendments to this bill moving forward to limit the scope of the Game and Fish Department’s authority on this issue. I will monitor changes and continue to protect fair chase and the sporting nature of hunting in Wyoming.

Additionally, the Committee of the Whole considered bills pertaining to equal pay, education major maintenance funding, vehicle title requirements and criminal justice amendments amongst others.

One bill failed the Committee of the Whole. HB0072 - Wage transparency failed on a vote of 27-32-1-0-0. This bill would have made it illegal for employers to fire employees for discussing wages.

Tuesday, January 15, 2019
Hello Sublette County, this is Albert Sommers reporting to you from the 6th day of the 65th General Session of the Wyoming Legislature. The Wyoming House of Representatives is in full swing and has considered several pieces of legislation with wide ranging impacts on the residents of Wyoming.

The House passed, on third reading, HB0025 – Virtual Education Amendments, by a vote of 58-0-2. The House also advanced seven bills on second reading, including some interesting bills like HB0003 - Board of outfitters and guides-civil penalties, HB0037 – Elected Officials Residency Requirements, and HB0057 – Financial Technology Sandbox.

The House Committee of the Whole also heard and passed several bills on voice vote. These bills included:
HB0005 – Medicaid benefit recovery-estates
HB0006 – Physical therapy-scope of practice revisions
HJ0001 – Wyoming support for delisting the grizzly bear
HB0066 – Lodging Tax
Of particular interest to me is HB0066, the Statewide Lodging Tax. This bill would impose a lodging tax of 5 percent with 3 percent being used to fund the Wyoming Department of Tourism and 2 percent to be distributed to local governments. This bill creates a mechanism for removing the Office of Tourism from the General Fund by establishing a dedicated funding stream. This is a continuation of a strategy the Legislature has employed for agencies like the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Additionally, this bill would shift the funding of the Office of Tourism off the backs of Wyoming citizens, as 80 percent of this tax is paid by out-of-staters. I voted for this bill.

HBs 12 and 28 passed Committee of the Whole, and both dealt with shed antler hunting. My bill, HB12, gives the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission the authority to regulate the date, time-of-day, and location of shed antler seasons. Currently the season opens May 1 at midnight on the west side of the Continental Divide. This bill will give the Commission some flexibility to set reasonable opening hours and adjust for long winters. HB 28 would give the Commission authority to regulate shed antler hunting statewide on public lands. Other areas of the state are facing similar issues to what Sublette County faced several years ago. Both bills passed Committee of the Whole, and I voted for both of them.

I can be reached with questions or concerns at albert@albertsommers.com.

Monday, January 14, 2019
Hello Sublette County, this is Albert Sommers reporting to you on January 14 from Cheyenne.

Today, in Committee of the Whole, we debated several bills including one that amended juror selection, composition, and excusal, one that clarified elected county office residency requirements by ensuring a candidate had been a resident in the county for at least a year, one that refines our online sales tax statutes to ensure that companies like Amazon collect Wyoming sales tax from all of their clients, and a bill that creates a financial technology sandbox where businesses can ask to suspend certain laws to test new financial instruments. These bills passed Committee of the Whole.

On Third Reading today, we passed HB38, which will allow legislators and state board and commission members to receive the federal per diem rate. The per diem rate has not been increased for several years, and it has become difficult or impossible to pay for room and board on the old rate of $109/day. We receive this rate when we travel to interim meetings and during the legislative sessions.

My Joint Appropriations Committee will begin to develop the budget on Wednesday, after we hear Governor Gordon’s requests on Tuesday.

Thank you

Road work on US 191 between Pinedale and Daniel (posted 1/16/19)
The Wyoming Department of Transportation and contract crews from Z & Z Seal Coating, Inc. will be conducting crack sealing work on US 191 between Pinedale and Daniel Junction starting January 16. Work will tentatively follow on Cora Road next week. Work is contingent upon weather as roads must be clear of snow and safe for work.

Work will begin January 16 and will continue for roughly a week. Residents and travelers are advised to expect delays up to 20 minutes, so those commuting on this highway are advised to plan accordingly. Traffic will be carried through the work areas at reduced speeds on a single lane using flaggers. Motorists are advised to watch for flaggers and be prepared to stop.

In addition, WYDOT would like to caution drivers turning onto US 191 from approaches within the work zone to be cautious of the single-lane traffic.

"We ask that drivers turning onto US 191 be cautious and aware of the direction of traffic. We are running a single lane of vehicles through the project area, so we ask that those approaching and turning onto the highway turn onto the road in the same direction of moving traffic," Lockman said.

Following the work on US 191 and Cora Road, crews will be moving to US 189 between La Barge and Big Piney.

Crack sealing is used as a defense against pavement deterioration. If done effectively, crack sealing keeps water from entering and weakening the base or sub-base of the roadway.

Z & Z Seal Coating, Inc. was awarded the contract for $1,592,766 back in October of 2018. The completion date for this district-wide project is April 30, 2019.

WYDOT would like to remind drivers to slow down in work zones, be alert and cautious of roadside workers. For more information on road construction, closures and weather conditions, visit http://www.wyoroad.info.

Burpees- Team finds donor(s) to donate money and the team will do burpees for the amount of money they raise. So, raise $500, do 500 burpees! Our athletes can’t wait for all the fun with burpees for money!

Workout: "Lynda’s Journey"
Individual athletes will do one workout HOPPER style. This is where a list of movements/rounds/reps are placed in a bin and Lynda will select the workout for athletes.

This will be a single workout, and it will end the day.

All the money will go to individuals with Multiple Sclerosis or physical ailment where exercise will help improve their quality of life. The money will go to a scholarship program for memberships towards personal training or class services through Silver Sneakers.

The day will be short but fun!

CrossFit is a community program where athletes enjoy working out for others. Plan to join the day and help provide fitness for more people with health ailments in our community.

Sign up your team today. Find a team costume or fun name and make a great morning out of it. Start raising money for a great cause.

If you would like to donate or have questions, contact Ranae Pape at The Garage Gym at 307-360-6382.
