February 14, 2020 Update

The data update for the Legislative Analysis Tool is complete. Once again a member of Republican Leadership is near the top of the table in agreeing with the Democrats most. Representative Barlow, the Majority Floor Leader agrees with the votes of Democrat Minority Floor Leader more than 88% of the time.

February 13, 2020 Update

The Evidence-Based Wyoming Legislative Analysis Tool has been updated to include the voting in the legislature on February 12, 2020. Not too surprisingly there was a shift in the parties as no fewer than 17 Republicans voting records are closer to the average Democrat than the average Republican.

Does a single vote make a legislator a liberal?

I had a comment on Facebook from Rep. Clark Stith in response to my latest post regarding the two day old 2020 legislative session and the voting pattern already emerging.

Help end the deception of Wyoming politics!

For a long time, lots of Wyomingites (except for Democrats and their political birds of a feather the liberal Republicans) have wanted to stop cross over voting in the primary election. The idea being lets Republicans choose their best candidate and the Democrats choose their best and then let them fight it out during the general election.

Why Wyoming Is Doomed to Higher Taxes and Lower Economic Growth in One Table

2020 is upon us, and Wyoming’s future hangs in the balance, and it doesn’t look like we’re going to weather the storm. Before getting started, please take a moment to pause and note that everyone in our legislature and elected offices act with the best of intentions, doing their best for their constituents and Wyoming in general.  Without a single reservation, Wyoming and its government of...
