In a significant indication Wyoming’s government is becoming increasingly more open and transparent, state officials have overwhelmingly complied with the financial disclosure forms required of state legislators and executive branch elected officials.

You must not have read many if any of those alleged financial disclosures. Is canned a few dozen of them. They were vaccuous...purposely empty of information. Especially legislators of the Republican persuasion, who left them mostly blank , just signed and dated. Kudos to Cody's Sandy Newsome who did provide a good account of her business interests.

Conflicts of interest pervade the Wyoming legislature. It's the norm of our citizen legislature... take some time away from your vocation to go to Cheyenne and get favorable laws enacted that favor that vocation... none worse than ranchers or the Wyoming Stockgrowers , but really it exists at every level in the Lej.

Neither the letter nor the spirit of this financial disclosure mandate is being followed by the people it is specifically intended for. Transparent as mud... they like it that way. The enabling legislation might as well be renamed the " None of your Business" financial disclosure requirement.
