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. Legislation from 2001-present 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.
