Wyoming lawmakers extend session 2 days after snow shutdown
CHEYENNE, WYO. (AP) — Wyoming lawmakers plan to wrestle with state spending as they meet a couple days longer than expected due to a snowstorm that shut down the state capital.
This year’s legislative session was scheduled to end this Friday after going a few weeks later than usual due to the coronavirus pandemic. A storm that dumped over 2 feet of snow prevented lawmakers from meeting March 15-16.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports the session is now scheduled to conclude April 7, two days after lawmakers take Monday off in observance of the Easter holiday.
Tasks still remaining include agreeing on a supplemental budget and cuts to education spending.
