Governor Mark Gordon introduced WOGCC Commissioner Jenifer Scoggin at the agency's March hearings. Scoggin, who was recently appointed as the director of the Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments, will now serve as an ex-officio WOGCC Commissioner.

Scoggin replaced Bridget Hill, who Governor Gordon appointed as his Attorney General. Hill served as an ex-officio WOGCC Commissioner for five years.

As noted in a recent press release from the Governor's office, Scoggin has served as a partner with the law firm of Holland & Hart, LLP. She brings extensive experience working in Wyoming on energy development projects, agriculture, assisting companies with the complicated processes of industrial siting, water rights, environmental permitting and compliance, and real estate issues. She has represented mining, oil and gas, renewable energy, construction, and other companies on compliance and permitting with Wyoming state agencies.

WOGCC Supervisor Mark Watson welcomed Scoggin at the hearings. He congratulated Scoggin on her new position and stated it will be a pleasure to work with her.
