Governor attends migration listening session in Rawlins

Governor Mark Gordon was in Rawlins Saturday to hear concerns of ranchers about a draft executive order regarding the designation of migration corridors before the plan is finalized as soon as this week.

Carbon and three other Wyoming counties which could be impacted by the executive order are home to some of the longest migration routes of big game animals in North America.

Facing a possible federal threat to protect the routes, the governor and the legislature are working on separate but overlapping plans to get out in front of the feds. Cali O’Hare reports.
