Legislative Session Half Done

Gingery

Today marks the half-way point for the Wyoming Legislature’s biennial budget session, and the second reading of the Budget Bill in both the Wyoming House and Senate commenced yesterday with over 40 proposed amendments.  Teton County Representative Keith Gingery explains that some of those amendments were able to be dispensed within a few minutes, but others required up to an hour to debate.  The day, Gingery says is historically known as one of the longest days of the session because of the 2nd reading amendments.  At the same time as debate is ongoing with the budget bill, regular non-budget bills have until today to be heard in Committee of the Whole.  Those bills that don’t get heard by adjournment today will die.  The responsibility for making sure that schedule moves forward belongs to Majority Floor Leader, Tom Lubnau from Gillette who also decides the order of the bills coming to the floor.

  • 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.
