Wyoming energy plan will updated

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – The last of six statewide meetings has been held on Gov. Matt Mead’s plan to boost Wyoming’s energy sector and protect the state’s natural resources.

Officials say an update to the plan is expected to be released early next year, according to an official in Mead’s office.

The plan was originally released in 2013 and included 47 energy, conservation and economic development initiatives.

Mead police adviser Nephi Cole says the strategy is intended to be a living document, and a new set of initiatives will be included in the update.

Cole said the governor’s office is now reviewing the public comments collected during the last several months.

These ideas will be summarized and presented during a public meeting planned for late September in Casper.
