While lobbyists are required to register the secretary of state and submit lobbyist annual activity reports, a Center for Public Integrity check in 2011 2012 showed that while lobbyists are good about registering, few file reports. That means we don't know how they're spending their money, or who they're spending their money on. The center's report gave Wyoming an F grade for its lobbying rules, and we deserved it.
It's hard to imagine there are so many shades of the color gray. But if a set of laws can define the spectrum, it's Wyoming's laws governing lobbyists.

You are correct, HaroldSimms. This newspaper, its editors and publisher, frequently attempt to sway public opinion on pending legislation, but whine and cry like spoiled children if others do it. The CS T Editorial Board has damaged countless citizens by publishing their "opinion" but presenting it as "fact". They should be held accountable for their lies. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name calling, crude Nike Womens Cortez

The state has always been run by the lobbyists who put elected officials in "their back pocket" even before they take the oath of office. It is not a citizens legislature, it is a lobbyists legislature always been. Just look at a list of receptions, parties, and "seminars" held at various hotels and watering holes during the legislative sesssion and you quickly see that Wyoming government is run by influence peddlers who are accountable to no one.

Of course, the Wyoming Liberty Group's quest comes with an asterisk: It's a hard group to define. Is it a think tank? Sure. A lobbyist? Certainly. A media outlet? Maybe. The group has claimed as much.
Wyoming lobbyists laws too weak
YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.
The Wyoming Liberty Group, a libertarian think tank of sorts, has said it will consider studying lobbying by agency administrators. We'll certainly be interested to see what the group finds.
You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.
That's not how government should work, and it opens the door to corruption. It might be a cozy way to do business, but it abuses the trust of voters.
It's time to toughen laws for lobbyists. The public should be able to believe in how its laws are made.
with lobbyists who also don't need to report how they spend their money. What a way to legislate.

But we can't miss this chance to again highlight a clear and obvious problem: Actual registered lobbyists are getting away without disclosing their activities or pay under a weak and unenforced lobbying law.
The group's quest and its identity issues illustrate once again how gray state lobbying rules are, and how even clearly defined requirements are seldom followed.
