Basin Electric Power Co-Op employees from both Dry Fork Station and Laramie River Station in Wheatland protest against a potential COVID-19 vaccine mandate and ask for help from the state’s legislators Tuesday afternoon outside Dry Fork Station north of Gillette.

With Wyoming Legislature meeting this week, the group made a last-minute effort to ensure their voices are heard as they seek out assistance from Wyoming's leaders to prevent any mandates impacting their workplaces.
