Gov. Freudenthal (D-WY) is currently pushing for the Wyoming State legislature to adopt legislation, that we previously reported on, that would create a regulatory framework for carbon capture and storage. The legislation would benefit the state and land owners rather than the federal government. The Governor said, "There is going to be a major transfer of wealth in this country as a result of carbon capture and sequestration, and I would rather that wealth go to our citizens than to the federal government." The bill would declare that the surface landowners would own the pore spaces where the CO2 would be stored. The Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission would over see the program.
