Sheridan, Wyo. (December 7, 2012) – Bighorn National Forest law enforcement officers and managers would like to remind everyone of some important rules and tips for safe winter recreation in the forest.
Forest regulations require that off-road snowmobile travel is allowed only when there are more than six inches of snow. This snow depth protects your investment in your machine as well as the natural features of the land. People caught snowmobiling off-road on less than six inches of snow or damaging exposed vegetation will be issued citations.

Washington, D.C. – Soda ash, oil field equipment, and beef are just a few of the Wyoming products that will be able to fairly compete in Russian markets, said U.S. Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso, both R-Wyo., who voted in favor of H.R. 6156, the Russia Permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) bill today. The legislation would give America the opportunity to challenge unfair trade practices in the World Trade Organization (WTO) if Russia does not honor its commitments, according to Enzi. The Senate voted 92-4 in favor of the bill and it now heads to President Obama for his signature. Read more: Enzi Press Release on Russia Trade Bill
