Wyoming Legislature update – Feb. 19, 2019
by Albert Sommers, House District #20 Representative
February 20, 2019

Hello Sublette County,
This is Albert Sommers in Cheyenne on Tuesday the 19th. Today kicked off the 7th week of the 2019 General Session. We heard from U.S. Senator John Barrasso as he presented a copy of the Congressional Record recognizing the 150th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in Wyoming. It is always beneficial to hear from our federal representatives. We spent much of the day voting on concurrences from the Senate, Joint Conference Committees and the final supplemental budget.

With the only bill considered last Friday on General File failing, no bills were up for consideration on 2nd reading in the House.

The House passed 11 bills on 3rd reading, including these bills I supported:
• SF 41– County Fair Endowments
• SF 60 - Protection of children-child endangerment amendments
• SF 67 – Hospital cost study
• SF 68 – Meat from harvested livestock or poultry
• SF 72 – Sexual assault biological evidence reporting
• SF77 – 2019 large project funding. This was an appropriation bill from the interest off of the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust Fund. Several projects were based in Sublette County, including conservation easements and cheatgrass control.
• SF 85 – Wyoming Medicaid Fraud Control Act

Given the time spent on the final supplemental budget and a great deal of debate on third reading bills, we did not consider any bills on General File. Tomorrow will be a full day of general file bills in an effort to get legislation worthy of debate from the Senate considered by the House before we adjourn for the session next week.

Please follow my Facebook page for up to date information and email me at with questions or concerns.

Thank you
