Today’s top stories:

U.S. Senators John Barrasso and Cynthia Lummis want the Bureau of Land Management to kill the agency’s preferred Rock Springs Resource Management Plan, calling it an “outrageous land grab.”

A planned drag show story hour for children in Rock Springs next week sparked a heated debate at a Rock Springs City Council meeting Tuesday.

The State of Wyoming is placing a $2.5 million bet that, working with UW, it can help industry figure out how to tap into the 200 billion barrels of oil reserves in the tricky Mowry Shale of the Powder River Basin.

After Arkansas announced it will force a Chinese state-owned company to sell its property there, a pair of Wyoming lawmakers say they plan to reintroduce bills they pushed this last session to restrict property ownership by adversary nations.

And with winterkill carcass scattered across the landscape, Wyoming hunters might have a crack at bringing home bonus trophies in the form of “dead heads,” or the intact heads and antlers of animals that froze and starved to death last winter.
