Wyoming Lawmakers Say Vaccine Mandate Special Session Approved
While as of early Friday morning there had been no formal announcement about a possible special session of the Wyoming Legislature to push back against President Biden's vaccine mandate, several lawmakers have posted on social media that a poll of the legislature had voted in favor of the mandate special session.
Rep. Chuck Gray [R-Natrona County], Rep. Landon Brown (R-Laramie County], and Rachel Rodriguez-Williams [R-Park County] were among the Wyoming legislators posting that the session had been approved by the necessary majorities in both houses.
Rep. Gray posted the following comments:
We have just received an email that 36 aye votes in the House and 18 aye votes in the Senate have been received in support of a special session! This is an unofficial tally based on the emailed votes but it looks like we have successfully crossed the threshold for a special session to be called. What a huge moment for our state! I continue to work on bills for the session. The session will be held between October 26-28.
Rep. Brown also posted that it had been approved:
