   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
We’ve got the perfect excuse about why we couldn’t get things done today. It’s all because of today’s edition of the Joke of the Day!


"Always be a little kinder than necessary."

~James M. Barrie (1860 - 1937)


   THIS WEEK'S POLL
Currently, telecommunications companies in Wyoming pay an extra tax into the Universal Service Fund. The tax is passed along to landline telephone customers in the state. The Universal Service Fund gives subsidies to telephone companies to help cover the cost of providing landline service in rural areas. The law creating the fund is due to expire next year.   Should the tax to subsidize the cost of landline telephone service in rural areas be renewed?



Supporters of State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill are calling for a special prosecutor to investigate Governor Matt Mead and his staff for his role in the effort to strip Hill of much of her powers. The bill authorizing that was declared unconstitutional by the Wyoming Supreme Court and she was reinstated. A Wyoming state representative has formally asked the Wyoming Attorney General to conduct an investigation of Mead for possible gross misconduct, misappropriation of state money and improper use of state resources.   Should a special prosecutor be appointed to investigate the governor?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
Governor Mead is asking for public input on proposals to build four new dams in Wyoming, and increase storage capacity at several existing facilities. The governor says the state needs more water storage for drought years, but others say the state doesn’t need the dams and they are too expensive.   Should Wyoming build more dams and increase its water storage?

Yes
40.7%

No
59.3%

A Montana group says that homeowners and local governments should cover more of the cost of fighting forest fires, because county and state governments are letting homeowners build houses in high risk areas. The costs of fighting forest fires are currently part of the federal budget, and the group says those costs are increasing because of homes built in poor locations.   Should local taxpayers pick up more of the tab for firefighting?

Yes
65.5%

No
34.5%
