Another Open Container Bill Proposed

Cheyenne, WY – A bill that would toughen Wyoming's Open Container law is back in the legislature again this year. Under this year's measure, open containers would be banned anywhere in a vehicle that is within easy reach of anyone, driver or passenger. Current law prohibits people from drinking while driving, but does allow passengers to drink. Representative Becket Hinckley says the current law has a major loophole and must be changed. Similar legislation has failed the last two years.
