Wyoming domestic partnership bill fails in the House

Today the Wyoming House of Representatives failed to pass a domestic partnership bill by a vote of 24 to 34. However, this bill came far closer to passage than many non-Wyomans had expected and gives hope that in the next session such a bill might prevail.

Thanks for quick Wyoming updates. At least working on these is far better then trying to defeat constitutional amendments just two years ago!

I would like to say I worked very hard this bill. I am glad it got 25 votes in the official roll call.

It is much better than being 1 shy of passage because we know that hurts a lot more. We need to remember we need to get rid of Representative Hutchinsons and Representative Baker who both very local in opposition. I believe that a new bill will come up in 2015.
