Wyoming Asks Feds to Reconsider Yellowstone Snowmobile Plan
(CHEYENNE, Wyo) – The state of Wyoming is asking a federal appeals court to reconsider its recent decision to prevent the state from suing the federal government about the number of snowmobiles in Yellowstone National Park. Gov. Matt Mead says limiting the park to 318 snowmobiles a day would hurt tourism and tax revenue. A federal court last month rejected Mead’s claim, saying the state failed to show how the rule would harm the state economically.
