Wyoming’s only House member, Lummis saw her wealth grow from $5.6 million in 2010 to $5.9 million in 2011. Although her reported liabilities doubled, from at least $250,000 to $500,000, the increase in debt was offset by gains in several of her investments.
Lummis derives most of her wealth from interests from a variety of businesses, including Lummis Livestock, Arp and Hammond Hardware Co. and Old Horse Pasture Inc.
Lummis disclosed a Wells Fargo mortgage on a personal residence, valued at $250,000, likely because of new STOCK Act requirements.
