State Legislature Convenes Next Week

The 2014 Session of the Wyoming State Legislature convenes next Monday, February 10, for only a short work schedule of 20 workdays focusing on creating the State budget for 2015-2016.

Governor Matt Mead will deliver the State of the State address at 10 Monday morning, to a joint session of the Wyoming Senate and House of Representatives. That speech and the Chief Justice's State of the Judiciary address will stream live at governor.wy.gov for anyone who wants to tune in and watch.

In a statement released from his office, the governor said having access to the address is important for anyone who wants to participate in the legislative process. The governor started online broadcasts of the State of the State address in 2011, when he took office.

The Business Day at the legislature when local business leaders can meet with legislators for lunch has been planned for Thursday, Feb. 27, from 11:30 to 12:30, in the east atrium of the Herschler Building in Cheyenne. Reservations can be made by going to the Sheridan County Chamber's website.

Also, according to the local chamber of commerce, a block of rooms has been set aside for Business Day at the Legislature at the Cheyenne Holiday Inn for $83, plus tax. The hotel phone number is 307-638-4466.
