Mr. Freeman supports community colleges and the University of Wyoming to provide the educated workforce for Wyoming’s industry.

As a member of the TRW committee, Rep. Freeman advocates for an adequately funded Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Over the years, the mission of the WGFD has changed. In addition to managing Wyoming’s wildlife, WGFD research has prevented the listing of several sensitive species to the endangered species list. If these animals were placed on the endangered species list, energy development in portions of the state could be stopped. Freeman has supported tourism promotions and the state’s motorized and non-motorized trail systems to enhance Wyoming’s second leading tourism industry.

Representative Freeman has shown tremendous commitment to be engaged in wildlife related issues and more importantly, with the stakeholders who value such resources. John’s experience in the legislature is vital to ensuring wildlife and sportsmen and sportswomen related topics are held with the highest regard. Voting for John Freeman will ensure such regard continues.” – Joshua W.D. Coursey

“As a member of the Sweetwater Mountain Bike Association, one of the biggest roadblocks for trail builders in Wyoming dealt with the liability protection for private landowners for recreational use by others.  The existing law was outdated in that mountain biking or horseback riding was not included in the description of recreational users.  John’s amendment adding cycling to the law will make it easier to negotiate further trail development.  Trail builders and users can thank John for his responsiveness.”

Rep. Freeman was one of four legislator selected to visit China’s coal producing regions to study clean coal initiatives.

Rep. Freeman predicts the 2015 Wyoming Legislature will continue to debate measures to expand and diversify Wyoming’s economy. Freeman was one of nine legislators selected to visit Alberta’s Heartland Project where the Canadians add value to their oil and gas products. Last June, Rep. Freeman was one of four legislator selected to visit China’s coal producing regions to study clean coal initiatives. Projects similar to the Heartland Project and enhanced uses for coal in Wyoming would greatly enhance Wyoming’s goal to grow and diversify its economy. Sweetwater County is a prime location for such programs with its coal, trona, natural gas, oil, transportation systems and unallocated water found in the Green River.
