Wyoming State Legislative Session
Toni Decklever, MA, RN, WNA Lobbyist
It has been a fast and furious week for the 2018 Legislative Session. By Wednesday, 194 House Bills and 10 resolutions and 121 Senate Files and 5 resolutions had been filed through the LSO office.
Friday, February 16, 2018 was the deadline for these bills to be introduced by a 2/3 vote and assigned to a committee. Many bills did not make it through this first step.
Committees meet everyday to discuss and debate their assigned bills. Bills must be heard and voted out of committee by next Friday, February 23rd.
The majority of the second week of the session will be dedicated to discussing the budget.
