The short 2024 budget session of the Wyoming Legislature begins today in Cheyenne and over 200 non-budget measures have already been filed for consideration.
Since this is a budget session, non-budget items need a 2/3 majority vote for introduction, but that hasn’t slowed the number of filings.
As of last Tuesday, 190 bills and four joint resolutions had been filed and with the filing deadline not until this Wednesday, that list could grow considerably larger. .
There has been a growing trend over the last several years of more and more non-budget items being filed for budget sessions.
