The Wyoming legislative session gets underway today. Wyoming Public Radio news director Bob Beck - who has covered lawmakers since 1985 - joined Morning Edition host Caroline Ballard to discuss what might happen this year.
Last year, the Wyoming Supreme Court ruled that the state can't force air ambulance companies to charge the same rate as a ground ambulance. The cost of a ride in an ambulance is about $5000 while a helicopter ride can cost nine times more.
Wyoming's next Governor Mark Gordon has been holed up trying to hire a staff, while also trying to get prepared for the legislative session. He took a few minutes to tell Wyoming Public Radio's Bob Beck what he's been up to since the election.
