At some point or another, you've heard the stat that American women earn just 77 cents for every dollar that men make. But what about state to state? Is it as bad in New York as, say, Ohio or Wyoming? In a new report, the Center for American Progress offers up this coast-to-coast breakdown. The pay gap ranges all the way from a low of 15 cents in places like Vermont and Nevada up to 36 cents in Wyoming. (More story after the chart. Also note: CAP tracks what women earn compared to white men specifically, though that doesn't seem to have changed the average disparity). 


Wyoming Governor Matt Mead recently returned from a trip to Dubai where he worked to boost trade and promote the work of Dr. Mohammad Piri, a professor of engineering at the University of Wyoming.

During the trip Mead met with representatives of the oil company Saudi Aramco in hopes of building a research partnership with the University of Wyoming. He also met with officials from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, a Muslim university located in Dahran, Saudi Arabia.


Wyoming legislators might take another two years before deciding whether to participate in health insurance exchange, a key Senate Republican said Friday.

Legislators have already spent the better part of two years studying exchanges — virtual marketplaces where consumers can shop for insurance. Now that the state has missed the federal deadline to run an program of its own, there’s no reason to rush into a decision, said Sen. Charles Scott, who is chairing a new committee studying exchanges.
