There is often times the CR system. They are suppose to have a percentage Wyoming sub-contractors. It appears no one is watching the shop about that. The reason we see more out of state contractors is because they are hungry for work. The reason they can do it cheaper is because they are using inferior products. The local contractors are saying that they are not allowed to be a sub-contractor. Hence, that is why we have asked Dr. Buchanan to come back to give us feedback about the construction in and around of UW.
