The 62nd Wyoming Legislature is in full swing, and things are moving quickly. The first week saw over 250 bills filed, with many more expected to come. While this session brought in a whole new class of law makers, we continue to have the same types of proposed legislation that we’ve seen over the past few years. For example, both HB97 & SF88 are extreme measures that would inject the State into women’s private medical decision, and effectively ban abortions in Wyoming. We intend to fight against these bills as they move through the legislative process, but remember that it’s very important for your legislators to hear from you! Learn how to participate during the legislative session.

We were thrilled to learn that Rep. Connolly (D–Laramie), along with several other sponsors, filed a marriage equality bill. We strongly support any pro-LGBT legislation! In addition, Rep. Connolly drafted an excellent bill that would extend significant benefits to domestic partnerships and same-sex couples. 

Like in years past, we will advocate for laws that safeguard our civil liberties and fights against bills that threaten our freedoms. We will track any bills that impact civil liberties in Wyoming. Stay tuned to our blog throughout the session for continuous updates on bills we’re monitoring.
