Wyoming Legislature update – February 14, 2019
by Albert Sommers, House District #20 Representative
February 14, 2019

Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019:
Hello Sublette County,
This is Albert Sommers in Cheyenne on Thursday the 14th, happy Valentine’s Day.

During 2nd reading today, the House passed 2 bills including:
• SF0080 - Passing stopped school bus-recorded images. This bill drew a lot of debate, as the body considered whether we should head down the road of other states that utilize cameras to issue vehicle violations.
• SF0151 – Judicial salary increases

The House laid back SF0131 - Spending policy amendments for further consideration during 2nd reading as well.

The House passed on 3rd reading consent list, 10 bills. Bills that were passed include these I supported:
• SJ0010 – Multiple use of public lands
• SF0113 – Retail purchases of alcohol liquors for resale
• SF0127 – Felony fleeing or eluding police. I voted against this bill, although it was amended into a better form. One of the last amendments was not clearly written, and I remained concerned that a felony could have been given for a stupid mistake.

We considered on Committee of the Whole 10 bills passing all of them on a voice vote. Interesting bills included:
• SF 41 – County Fair Endowments
• SF 68 – Meat from harvested livestock or poultry. This bill is designed to prevent cultured proteins from being labeled as meat in Wyoming. These new cultured products are being developed, and those of us in the meat business want the consumer to understand what they are purchasing.
• SF 72 – Sexual assault biological evidence reporting
• SF 85 – Wyoming Medicaid Fraud Control Act

I can be reached at with questions or concerns.

Thank you
