CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - As the state grows, so do the needs of businesses. But how much should regulations or government be involved?

These are some issues that the Action and Advocacy Committee is considering as they look to the upcoming Legislative session.

“We need for municipalities to make sure our communities are are safe and appropriate. So were going to have to watch that balance this year. I know there will be a lot of discussion about it,” said Dale Steenbergen, President and CEO of The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce.

The Action and Advocacy Committee is starting to reach out to the newest members of the two chambers before the Legislative session begins.

There are a few issues they are paying attention to, like liquor licenses, annexation, Purple Star schools for military kids, and adversarial property ownership for agriculture and infrastructure, to name a few.

These state-level issues affect local businesses, which could mean money and growth for Wyoming.

“At the end of the day, the businesses in Wyoming are going to succeed or fail together, not on their own, and its important that we keep a unified voice from the business community,” said Steenbergen.

The second Legislative session begins the second week of January.
