Council

The Industrial Siting Council reviews the socio-economic and environmental impacts of industrial facilities before issuing a permit for construction. Emphasis is placed upon social-economic impacts.

The council consists of seven members, all of whom must be Wyoming residents. The governor, with approval of the state senate, appoints each member to a 6-year term. Not more than four members of the council can be of any one political party. The council operates in conjunction with the Department of Environmental Quality.
