   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
Being a Rabbi must be a tough job. You get asked questions like today’s edition of the Joke of the Day!


"The customer doesn't expect everything will go right all the time; the big test is what you do when things go wrong."

   THIS WEEK'S POLL
An Associated Press report shows that American flags were lowered to half-staff either in individual states or nationwide for 328 days last year. That has led some to question the value of the practice, and whether it has the appropriate meaning and significance.   Do you think that flags are lowered to half-staff too often?



The Wyoming Supreme Court is considering whether to allow government agencies to charge the press and the public a fee to examine public documents electronically, and the Wyoming Department of Administration is proposing charging up to $40 per hour to prepare electronic records and documents for public inspection. Officials say it takes staff time to prepare the records, but opponents say taxpayers already paid for the creation of the documents, and should not be charged again to see them.   Should government agencies charge fees or costs when asked to produce public documents electronically?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
The Joint Appropriations Committee has voted against calling a special session of the Wyoming Legislature to deal with the state budget. Governor Matt Mead has announced the layoffs of close to 700 contract employees and the need to cut $248 million from the state budget.   Should Wyoming call a special session of the Legislature to deal with the budget?

Yes, we need a special session
62.5%

No, the Governor’s cuts are fine
37.5%

The Wyoming Legislature has repeatedly rejected expanding Medicaid under Obamacare. Governor Mead says the expansion would bring in $268 million in federal money to the state, although those funds would decline in later years.   In light of the state’s budget shortfall, should the Legislature reconsider its decision on expanding Medicaid?

Yes, the Legislature should expand Medicaid under Obamacare
56.4%

No, the Legislature should not expand Medicaid under Obamacare
43.6%
