Wyoming Legislature update – Tuesday, Jan. 11
by Albert Sommers, House District #20 Representative
January 11, 2017

Hello Sublette County, this is Albert Sommers reporting to you from Cheyenne on Tuesday the 11th. I now realize the work load associated with being on the Appropriation Committee, as we interviewed agencies and their budgets from 8AM this morning until 7:30PM this evening. We had few breaks, except for Governor Mead’s State of the State message, and the State of the Judiciary message from Chief Justice Burke. Governor Mead touched on the basic themes that Speaker Harshman spoke to yesterday. This included our budget deficit and education funding crisis, economic development, and the great people of this state.

A few new bills that popped up on the legislative website include a bill providing further definitions for abortions, a bill on the operation of motorboats while intoxicated, and a bill which expands the use of revenues for senior citizens special districts. For the next week and a half, at least, the Appropriations Committee will consume most of my day, including during much of the debate on the floor of the House. I will miss hearing those discussions.
