Fans of the YA book series, The Hunger Games, have been avidly awaiting its big screen debut and the state of Wyoming is obviously no exception. State legislators have created and passed a “Doomsday Bill” to better prepare the state for either the Apocalypse or a Hunger Games-like revolution. You know, just in case.
