Wyoming Legislature update – January 23, 2023 (posted 1/25/2023)
Albert Sommers, House District #20 Representative
Hello Sublette County and LaBarge, this is Albert Sommers
reporting to you on Monday, January 23, a day the
Legislature is in recess.

Friday, January 20, was the ninth day of the 2023 General
Session of the 67th Legislature. As we wrapped up the second
week of the Session, the House continued to hear and vote on
bills in the Committee of the Whole, 2nd Reading, and on 3rd
reading.

href="https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2023/HB0026">HB0026
- School facilities-appropriations
passed the House
on Friday on 3rd reading. This bill clarifies the
Legislature’s ability to appropriate a single sum of money
for the design and construction phase of a school facility
project. We heard testimony that making this clarification
would allow for efficiency for school-facility construction
projects to continue to move forward versus getting stalled
with multiple approval processes. Moving construction
forward in a timely manner is especially crucial in times of
inflation. I support this bill.

href="https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2023/HB0093">HB0093
- Omnibus water bill-construction
is a yearly bill
of water projects funded by severance tax dollars. The bill
amended existing project timelines and appropriated
additional funds where needed to cover the costs of ongoing
water projects. Projects range from cloud seeding to
encouraging snowfall in the Wind River and Sierra Madre
Mountain Ranges to funding municipal water supply projects
and water infrastructure rehabilitation needs. Water is a
critical issue for Wyoming. We must continue to fund these
important water projects, like the New Fork Lake dam, which
is why I supported putting money into the account that funds
building dams. I supported this bill.

I came home on Saturday, January 21, to attend the
appreciation dinner for former county commissioner Joel
Bousman. Joel has spent a lifetime in service to Sublette
County and Wyoming. I have always appreciated his thoughtful
intelligent approach to issues, even when I didn’t agree
with him. Joel was always considered the Nation’s County
Commissioner, as he fought for local government input into
complex national policy. He has fought to preserve the
custom and culture of Sublette County for a long time. Joel,
my hat is off to you.

I can be reached at href="mailto:albert@albertsommers.com">albert@albertsommers.

with questions or comments. Thank you.
