State Legislature

The 2021 Wyoming state legislative session gaveled in on Monday, January 12. While normally the halls and side rooms of the (now newly-remodeled) Capitol would be buzzing with conversations between legislators, lobbyists, staff, and journalists, this year was a virtual affair. And for the first few weeks of the session, it will continue to be as the legislature navigates the COVID-19 pandemic with the rest of the world.

But although some things may look, sound, and feel different from years past, there’s one thing that you can rely on — the Wyoming Outdoor Council will be here to make sure you have a voice for conservation at the (virtual) Capitol. Since our founding, we’ve advocated and defended a range of conservation issues at the legislature that matter to Wyomingites, families, and communities, and that protect the Wyoming we love. We don’t plan to stop now.

Since this year is unusual and there may be unexpected changes, we’ll use this page as a resource for bill updates, meeting schedules, and action alerts — as well as a resource for tips for how to get involved.
