Track & Field, Legislative Style

Hurdles is the absolute perfect analogy for the obstacle course of a Wyoming Legislative Session. There are at least 9 opportunities for a bill to die in the budget session as any non-budget bill requires 2/3 majority for introduction in the chamber of origin. Because this is the first year after census results, the exemption for budget bills also extends to re-districting. In a General Session (odd years), a simple majority will introduce and those are often done on a consent list.


Thank you to Representative Karlee Provenza for creating this exceptional graphic depicting the process. The Civics307 bill tracker can be found under File Share and is updated each evening of the Session with the most current status as well as summaries.
