Rumors that the Wyoming Legislature will remove the population-based cap on liquor licenses were floated during a meeting with legislators and the Gillette City Council earlier this week.

State law limits the number of retail, restaurant and other forms of liquor licenses a community can issue based on population. Under that rule, Gillette is allowed to give out 30 retail liquor licenses and four bar and grill licenses.
