The problem many western states are having is the California invasion. Here in Wyoming more California drivers permits are turned in for Wyoming permits than any other state. We do not have state income taxes and low property taxes and do not tax retirements. These people move in from California to take adavantage of these tax breaks. Then they start demanding more public aid, better schools, limited hunting, gun control. They now wonder and complain why Wyoming people are so unfriendly and stand offish. NO SH#t.
