If the attorney general or the governor deems it to be in the public interest to convene
a grand jury which shall have jurisdiction extending beyond the boundaries of any
single county, he may petition the judge of any district court for an order in accordance
with the provisions of W.S. 7-5-301 through 7-5-309. The district judge may, for good cause shown, order the impaneling of a state grand
jury which shall have statewide jurisdiction. In making his determination as to the need for impaneling a state grand jury, the
judge shall require a showing that the matter cannot be effectively handled by a county
grand jury impaneled pursuant to W.S. 7-5-101 through 7-5-209.
