Below are updates on those bills directly affecting our party, abortion law, taxes new or increased, or the creation/expansion of laws for special classes. Bills change quickly, so we urge you to daily check on action on these and other bills you’re following and directly contact your District Legislators and/or the bill’s sponsors with questions or concerns.
Wyoming is proud of our Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso for supporting this important plank in our platform (https://www.wyoming.gop/wyoming_republican_party_platform) with their sponsorship of the Constitutional Concealed-Carry Reciprocity Act currently being reviewed in the US Senate.
Our original updates were focused on only a handful that would directly affect our party, abortion law, or taxes new or increased. Below are updates on those bills remaining from that original list. Bills change quickly so we urge you to study them and directly contact your District Legislators and/or the bill’s sponsors with questions or concerns.
THE PRESIDENT: Madam Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, the First Lady of the United States — (applause) — and my fellow Americans:
We meet tonight at a moment of unlimited potential. As we begin a new Congress, I stand here ready to work with you to achieve historic breakthroughs for all Americans.

With 19 days of the 2019 Legislative Session behind us, it is encouraging to look back and appreciate the positive work that has been done thus far. We are so thankful to be able to report the demise of a few threatening bills.
Below are three bills to which the Wyoming Republican Party is paying close attention. We ask you to take action on each of them in order to ensure Republican values continue to thrive in our state.
Today the Senate Committee of the Whole (COW) voted to pass SF0160 after its first reading. This bill will #EndCrossoverVoting and #FlipTheSwitch if made law. The bill will be read two more times by the Senate COW and, if passed, be sent to the House.
Please join us in THANKING our Senators for listening to Wyomingites and working to ensure election integrity!
The Wyoming Legislative Session continues full-steam ahead and today is officially the last day for bills to be reported out of committee. If there has been no action in a committee by the end of the day the bill is dead.
Some of the bills we are watching include:
This morning HB230 was assigned to the Revenue Committee. HB 230 would impose SOGI legislation on employers in Wyoming, elevating the LGBTQ community to a special class.
