UW economist Rob Godby was interviewed by The Casper Star-Tribune to comment on President Joe Biden’s approval of an $8 billion oil project in Alaska that reflects a shift away from his campaign promises to stop drilling on federal lands. The article notes that the shift probably will not lead to any major regulatory changes in Wyoming.
The Powell Tribune produced a feature on UW’s new Firearms Research Center that will bring more voices to the firearms discussion; create a pipeline for law school graduates prepared to serve as firearms attorneys; and act as a reliable, nonpartisan resource for firearms-related information and research. UW College of Law Professor George Mocsary, the center’s director and co-founder, and Ashley Hlebinsky, the other co-founder, were interviewed for the article. Mocsary is a nationally recognized Second Amendment expert.
