Here is the latest Wyoming news from The Associated Press

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Liz Cheney's team says campaign finance reports showing that she fell behind U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi in her bid to unseat the three-term Wyoming Republican reflects the winding down of her short-lived campaign. As of Dec. 31, Enzi had $1.8 million and Cheney $612,000. Cheney ended her Republican primary challenge against Enzi on Jan. 6, citing health issues in her family.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming House has voted not to introduce a bill to cut the severance tax on coal production. Sponsors Rep. Eric Barlow of Gillette and Sen. Ogden Driskill of Devils Tower have said coal is increasingly coming under fire from federal government regulations. The measure would have cut the severance tax for surface coal from 7 percent to 6 percent and cut the tax on underground coal from 3.75 percent to 3 percent.

CASPER, Wyoming (AP) — Wyoming Republicans say their state headquarters will move from Casper to the capitol, though not all party members are happy. The Casper Star-Tribune reports Senate President Tony Ross said Monday that he thinks the state office should stay in Casper because it is more centrally located there.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Riley Grabau scored 17 points, Larry Nance Jr. had 14 and Wyoming beat No. 5 San Diego State 68-62 last night to end the Aztecs' 20-game winning streak. The victory by Wyoming came almost 16 years to the day after the Cowboys last beat a top-5 team at home, a 62-56 win over No. 5 Utah. Fans stormed the court after the final buzzer, mobbing Wyoming players.
