Conservation properties could be facing a change in Wyoming. According to the Casper Star-Tribune, the Wyoming Senate advanced legislation this week that would take away the authority from the Environmental Quality Council to deem areas “very rare or uncommon.”
Supporters say the organization has abused its powers and the designation is out of date. Opponents say say that the designation is needed to preserve natural and historical landmarks, as well as conservation properties.
Who is right? Do properties with conservation values or historical significance need the designation?
