New rules for baseline water testing, off-site mitigation and reclamation are among the hallmarks of Gov. Matt Mead’s official strategy for energy management in Wyoming.

The strategy, much like its preliminary predecessor, breaks down energy policy into four basic subgroups – economic competitiveness, expansion and diversification; efficient, effective regulation; natural resource conservation, reclamation and mitigation; and education, innovation and new technologies. Each group contains several steps toward Mead’s ultimate goal for the state.

Among Mead’s planned steps to expand and diversify the state’s economy is an increased emphasis placed on international exports. Mead said his initiative could include coal, oil and natural gas, uranium and other resources.
