UPDATE: Senate File has failed. 

Senate File 05 is legislation that will continue a negative trend of creating new crimes in Wyoming that contribute to overcrowding in WY prisons and more cost that the state must take on. 

We oppose Senate File 05 because it would continue the negative trend of creating new crimes in Wyoming that contribute to overcrowding in state prisons and pile on costs that Wyoming cannot afford. 

With budget concerns being paramount and criminal justice reforms clearly needed in Wyoming, we highly suggest not passing bills that would create new crimes or increasing penalties.
