Government rules and regulations – at both the state and federal level – are what all businesses have to deal with on a daily basis. Wyoming is no different. Despite the fact that Wyoming is one of only four states that doesn’t have any corporate or personal incomes taxes, companies still need legal assistance when it comes to dealing with state and local governments.

There are number of significant public policy issues that confront Wyoming lawmakers, business owners, and voters, such as:
- Energy – Wyoming is a state that’s long been dependent on the energy business, specifically energy generated by fossil fuels, such as natural gas, oil, and coal. But as demand and prices have fallen, the state has increasingly embraced alternatives, particularly wind energy.
- Health care – Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Wyoming lawmakers have consistently declined to expand Medicaid, leaving the state in a tougher position to tackle rising health care costs. Tragically, according to a Gallup survey, Wyoming is the only state in the country that’s seen its uninsured population grow between 2013 and 2015.
- Safety at work – Wyoming continues to have one of the highest rates of accidental employee deaths in the country.
- Environment – Wyoming has always struggled to maintain a balance when it comes to environmental issues. On one hand, the state is home to some of the country’s largest coal mines. On the other, the state’s parks draw a strong tourist trade.
- Diversity – Despite the fact that Wyoming was the first state to give women the right to vote (as well as the first to boast a female governor), the state’s legislature is one of the country’s oldest and least diverse.
