Looking in the sudoers file I see....

# Uncomment to allow people in group wheel to run all commands
# %wheel        ALL=(ALL)       ALL

# Same thing without a password
# %wheel        ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL

Is that the sort of thing you want?  It is a bit early, and I was out a
bit late, to fully engage cranial functions.
