Senate approves redistricting bill

Mar 1, 2012

    The State Senate has given final approval to a bill that redraws Wyoming’s legislative seats.  It protects the seat of Senator Curt Meier, after a committee had previously recommended combining his seat with another Senate district. 

Lander Republican Cale Case told the Senate it’s a bill they can be proud of.

“You can always find a better idea for your district, but as the rings of that rock thrown in that pond work its way out to the shores of Wyoming that what happens is, it gets messed up.  So we did the best we can, but I think it’s something you can believe in.”

Earlier, some members from southwest and northeast Wyoming expressed some concern about the bill, but did not offer any Senate amendments. The bill now heads to the governor for his signature.
