Could Colorado county become part of Wyoming?

CRAIG — Moffat County could be moving toward secession from Colorado under the 51st State Initiative.

Moffat County Commissioner John Kinkaid announced his intention Tuesday to write the ballot language that would ask local voters on the Western Slope whether they want to join the secession movement that has gained momentum on the Front Range on the other side of the state.

According to the Craig Daily Press, Kinkaid said Moffat County could either join up with the 51st state proposed for the Front Range or maybe become part of Wyoming. There was no immediate response from Wyoming lawmakers.

Colorado lawmakers in northern counties say they are being ignored by the Colorado Legislature and they want more representation.
