Wyoming Budget Would Rein in UW Operations
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The trustees of the University of Wyoming may have to report to the Legislature on a range of policies, including installation of permanent art work and the possible razing of historic buildings on campus.
UW officials last year sped up the removal of an anti-coal sculpture that had caused a furor on campus.
Sen. Phil Nicholas, a Laramie Republican, is sponsoring an amendment in the pending budget bill that would require the UW trustees to report how they handle installation of permanent art work now and require the trustees to recommend a policy for future trustee approval of permanent art work.
Nicholas says he has no concerns about paintings or other artwork that’s easily removed, but he says the trustees should be involved in any permanent change to the university.
