A group of Wyoming politicos and journalists is launching a nonprofit online news publication dedicated to covering state government.
The Cowboy State Free Press started publishing stories on the Web a few weeks ago and plans to ramp up its operation by the beginning of the legislative session in February.
State Rep. Sue Wallis, a Republican from Recluse, is executive director and president of the board. The bureau chief is Phil Noble, a former broadcaster and campaign director for Democratic Gov. Dave Freudenthal.
The publication says its mission is to "to seek the facts and report them."
