Legislative Action

Legislative Session Starts January 10, 2017

On January 10th,  the Wyoming Legislature will convene for the 2017 general session. During the 40-day session, the Legislature will work on many issues, including impending revenue shortfalls.

WEA has been active in following the issues that affect our members. The WEA Legislative Action Team attended meetings of the Select Committee on Statewide Education Accountability, Joint Education Committee, Joint Appropriations Committee, and others. We have worked with members of the Education Coalition to monitor these issues as well as to provide input.
