After a long weekend to recharge, the 67th Legislature was back in action yesterday. Even with a long weekend to decompress, patience on the floor and in committees continue to wear thin as debates were fairly contentious.
A bright spot in the day was a visit by the General Consul of Canada, Sylvain Fabi. He took the opportunity to speak to both chambers yesterday morning. His message was positive and brought about a sense of pride, respect, and togetherness between our State and Canada. He spoke of our collaboration when it comes to issues such as national security and mineral exploration, and he reaffirmed the excellent working relationship that Wyoming and Canada enjoy.
We are to a point in the session where bill signings will be happening frequently by Governor Gordon. They are wonderful occasions and celebrate the hard work of dozens, if not hundreds of people. The WBA will be at many of the bill signings, so we encourage you to attend if you desire!
We will see another full slate of bills in committee and on the floor today as the Friday deadline for bills out of committee in the second chamber looms. The WBA will be there reminding our leaders that Business Makes Wyoming Better!

We will update our bill trackers daily as bills are posted to the LSO website and as action is taken on bills. The trackers include hyperlinks to the individual bills as well as the WBA’s position on those pieces of legislation. The WBA’s positions are taken in accordance with our official process.
If you would like more information about a bill position or to request a position on a bill, please reach out to Cindy DeLancey to begin the committee review process.
