3 Bills To Protect Liberty In Wyoming
Wyoming State Representative Chuck Gray, of Casper, was good join me on Thursday morning to talk about three bills he is trying to get passed that he hopes will help protect freedom and liberty in the cowboy state. You can hear the entire interview in the video above.
The Voter Fraud Prevention Bill Filed In Wyoming Legislature is a bill that would aim to crack down on any possibility of voter fraud in Wyoming has been filed for the 2021 session of the Wyoming Legislature. You can read House Bill 75 here. The bill is sponsored by Rep. Chuck Gray [R-Natrona County], and a long list of co-sponsors. The bill would, among other things, mandate that "acceptable identification" be presented by anyone voting in person. The ID could be a Wyoming driver's license, a tribal ID card, a Wyoming ID card, a U.S. passport, a U.S. military card, or a valid Medicare insurance card.
A second bill introduced would bring a year to year cap on the assessment of property taxes in Wyoming. This would prevent the sudden jump in assessments that some property owners saw in Natrona County.
A bill that would limit state and local public health orders to 15 days unless the orders are approved by the legislature or county officials has also been filed in the Wyoming Legislature. You can read House Bill 56 here. This bill would make sure that there are proper checks and balances to make sure one person does not have unchecked authority during times like we are in now with COVID-19.
We also talked about state budget issues and how close the Wyoming legislators think they might be toward solving our states shortfalls. The possibility of taxes were also discussed in the interview.
