Treasurer Deb Palmer read the treasurers report. There were deposits made and bills paid. Motions were made and the report was approved as read.
Vice President Scott Luers reported on his trip to Washington. He did report that compared to some other states, Wyoming does have simpler laws and regulations as far as prospecting. He also told us that he obtained some names of various people who could help with any legal issues that may arise in the future. The Equal Access for the People is a group to help everyone where the Public Land for the People is for the local groups, which gives us more access to help with legalities. He stated that there are still several issues that still need researched to know where we stand with laws and regulations. He will keep us informed as new answers are learned.
