JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - In the wake of increased attention to bicycle safety in the state, some lawmakers are considering sponsoring a bill that would create an oversight task force for Wyoming’s bicycle and pedestrian system.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Rf8Vac ) that on Tuesday members of the Joint Travel, Recreation, Wildlife and Cultural Resources Interim Committee discussed a ill draft that would create a task force to study ways the state can coordinate with and assist local bicycle and pedestrian pathways and the most cost-effective method of building pathways along established roads.

After the 2015 legislative session the committee was tasked with studying safety and long-range plan for bicycle paths. Initially, some had hoped to create a statewide bicycle path, bit with energy revenues dropping those plans have been scaled back.
