Not long after I posted this about a Utah state legislative resolution to keep hydraulic fracturing unregulated, I got wind of a similar effort underway in Wyoming. What a coincidence: the separate bills are moving through their respective chambers today. Could this be the stirrings of another sagebrush rebellion? Last week, Mike Noel, a Utah state legislator (R-Knab), offered to lead the charge. This aint the 1970s, though. The demographics and electoral politics of the West are much different today (except in Utah, perhaps). So we'll have to wait and see if there is any appetite for Son of Sagebrush: the sequel.
