House bill 92 and 89 are both sponsored by representative Hunt for Niobrara, Weston, and Goshen Counties.

Starting with 92, Representative Hunt is suggesting to repeal the Wyoming beef check-off penalties, which haven't been utilized since the late 80s.

Measure 89 repeals a livestock law in relation to feeding untreated garbage to pigs. If the measure passes, ranchers could feed pigs untreated animal or vegetable waste as result of preparation and cooking...and even animal carcasses.
