2020 WAM Legislative Session Preview

The 2020 Wyoming Legislature will convene on Monday February 10, 2020.  Pursuant to the Wyoming Constitution, this is a budget session and will adjourn no later than March 12, 2020.  As this is a budget session, any legislation not pertinent to the budget, will require 2/3 majority of both bodies to be introduced and considered by the body.

As of the writing of this document, 55 House Bills and 41 Senate Files have been introduced.  We expect that some 250 bills will be introduced before the deadline for bill filing on February 14th.  While most of these will fail to be introduced, we expect a many non-budget bills to be considered by the House and Senate.

While WAM will monitor all of these bills and lobby many of them; our principal focus this session will be the state budget.  Specifically, WAM will be working to maintain on the funding of cities and towns in at the current levels.

The following are some of the highlights that are relevant prior to the session.
