Joint Judiciary Committee Here Next Month

Gingery

The Wyoming Joint Judiciary Interim Committee plans to meet in mid-May in Teton Village to receive information and updates concerning jury pool selection, the 24/7 sobriety program, controlled substances and a variety of other issues. Co-chairman Keith Gingery explains that meetings like this one enable the committee to consider issues and draft proposed legislation to introduce at the next legislative session. Gingery says because the Wyoming Legislature meets just two months out of the year, interim committee meetings are scheduled throughout the rest of the year to consider matters to be brought before the full legislature.  Since he chairs the Joint Judiciary Interim Committee, Gingery says he arranged for the committee to meet here in Jackson Hole May 13th and 14th, and will meet two or three more times before the next legislative session in January 2014. Gingery says that some of the considerations at this meeting have close ties to Jackson, and so meeting here seemed appropriate.  Among the topics are law enforcement concerns of the Game and Fish Department, and involuntary commitment for the mentally ill – looking in particular at the method used in Teton County which is considered the model for how to provide treatment for the mentally ill and how to process them through the system. Gingery says the committee also is scheduled to tour the juvenile facility at Red Top Meadows to see how it operates. Gingery says people interested in listening to the committee’s discussions or present testimony of their own are welcome to attend. The Legislative Service office is to distribute a formal agenda for the meeting between now and the meeting, and will also post it online.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
