About Wyoming Legislation

This library of legislative materials contains journals, or digests of the journals, from the first territorial legislature that convened in 1869 up to the present. It also contains digitized bills from 1873 to 2000, in addition to bill actions -- a record of actions done on each introduced bill -- from 1957-2000. 2001-present legislation is available through the session archives. Digitizing these items and making them searchable is helpful for research.

The journals changed to digests in 1957, but sometimes in later years they are called journals even though they are really digests. The journals were a day-to-day record of what was covered during the session. The digests split out the bills and describe the actions taken on that bill.

This project is a service of the Wyoming State Library, in partnership with the Legislative Service Office and the Wyoming State Archives, with funding from the Wyoming State Legislature.
