CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - With the push for economic development across Wyoming, one of the stumbling blocks businesses face is limited liquors licenses.

The non-legislative Action and Advocacy committee is looking at what could be done to propose changes within Legislature.

The Action and Advocacy committee had its meeting on Tuesday to look at ways to improve business practices and policies in Wyoming.

This could affect liquor licenses, as they are looking at ways to increase the number of allowed licenses and propose legislative bills to support this.

They also want to diversify the types of licenses available for recreational businesses.

These initiatives, according to Dale Steenbergen, President & CEO of the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce, should come into fruition as first draft bills by August or Fall.

" We have explosive growth up the front range, we have the desire to have new kinds of businesses, restaurants specifically, a lot of those restaurants have some kind of bar component so they need the bar and grill license. So i think that number is going to continue to grow quiet rapidly.” said Steenbergen.

Other topics on the agenda were the long-term trajectory of energy costs, which has been a decade-long legislative topic on de-regulation, which has failed at every proposal.
