Gov. Mark Gordon on Friday renewed calls for the state to become a leader in carbon capture and sequestration technology.

Gordon, speaking to the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce, said by taking a leadership position in the areas, Wyoming could protect energy producers.

“That is something I’m gong to fight for … every single day,” he said. “We can be a leader in changing the climate, keeping people working, not disenfranchising those people who produce quality energy at a low price for the people around this country.”

Gordon also said the Legislature’s general session, which ended in March, was a productive session despite media reports of disputes between the House and Senate and between the Legislature and the governor’s office.

“The true story of it was it was a very good legislative session and we worked hard all the way to the end,” he said.
