On Tuesday, January 13, the 2015 Wyoming State Legislature convened, and on Wednesday Governor Matt Mead gave his annual State of the State address. We are keeping an eye on and engaging in several important issues this session and would like to share some resources that you can use to keep abreast of what’s going on.
- Richard Garrett, the Outdoor Council’s full-time lobbyist, will be in Cheyenne throughout the session. Follow his twitter account for current updates, and keep an eye out for his periodic blog posts here in the coming weeks. The hashtag #wyleg is also a good way to stay up to date on all activity.
