Progress Stalled…For Now.

First Major Hurdle Cleared

Yesterday, the Wyoming House of Representatives gave FINAL APPROVAL to HJ0008, our Free and Fair Elections resolution. The final vote was a comfortable 37-20-3, with one of the three absent legislators also being a strong supporter.

Wyoming Promise Responds to Comments in the Senate

Opponents of the Free and Fair Elections resolution are arguing (see transcript) that the Constitutional Amendment the resolution seeks is an attack on free speech.
