Wyoming Amends Legislation Aimed at Constructing Natural Gas Filling Stations

The Wyoming State Legislature last week amended HB 0235, which would have allowed the Wyoming Department of Transportation to construct natural gas filling stations, and instead turned it into a pilot project to demonstrate the efficacy of natural gas, thanks to the efforts of the Colorado Wyoming Petroleum Marketers Association.

As originally drafted, the bill would have allowed WYDOT to enter into contracts to construct and operate natural gas filling stations. The bill was amended, however, to say that only state-owned government vehicles could utilize the WYDOT natural gas filling stations. The effort to build alternative fueling stations also was transitioned into a pilot project to study the effectiveness of natural gas.
