Open Container Bill Almost Dies

Cheyenne, Wy – The legislature is still trying to sort out the details of the bill that would outlaw open containers of alcohol in vehicles. The bill almost died for the session Tuesday, when the House failed to agree with what a conference committee came up with. Representative Jane Warren says the issue was whether Recreational Vehicles should be exempted from the law.
After some discussion the House and Senate have appointed a free committee to try and rewrite some of the language in the bill. Warren says it would be a huge disappointment if the bill is killed.
