(Wyo.)-Day At The State Legislature
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Events on the ninth day of 2013 General Session of the Wyoming Legislature: Fri., Jan. 18:
GAS TAX: A bill that would raise the state fuel tax by a dime was introduced in the Senate and assigned to the Senate Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee. The bill already has cleared the House.
ARREST RECORDS: The House Judiciary Committee on Monday advanced a bill that would change a provision of state law that keeps the identities of people charged with sexual assault secret until they're bound over to district court. Rep. Sam Krone, R-Cody, is sponsor of the bill, which would allow the release of defendant's names as soon as they are charged with sexual assault, the same as any other felony. The bill now goes to the full House.
HITCHHIKING: The Senate Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee advanced a bill that would remove the state prohibition on hitchhiking on public highways.
CELLPHONES: A bill that would have banned using cellphones while driving was voted down in the Senate Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee.
