CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Four Wyoming legislators will travel to China next month for discussions about clean-coal technology.

The 10-day trip is set to start June 7 and will take the lawmakers and others to three Chinese coal-producing provinces.

The Wyoming delegation will consist of Republican House Speaker Tom Lubnau, of Gillette, state Republican Rep. Tim Stubson, of Casper, state Democratic Rep. Mary Throne, of Cheyenne, and Democratic Rep. John Freeman, of Rock Springs.

The legislators' travel expenses will be paid for by the Jackson Hole Center for Global Affairs. It is a bipartisan public policy institute that has sought to foster American-Chinese cooperation on clean-coal technologies.

Center President David Wendt tells the Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1nzNilT ) that the purpose of the trip is to share lessons about the challenges of carbon emissions.
