Sheridan County's legislative delegates talked about their experiences in this year's state legislative session and answered questions from the audience at a meeting Tuesday of the Sheridan County Republican Women's organization.

All five – senators Dave Kinskey and Bo Biteman and representatives Mark Jennings, Mark Kinner and Richard Tass – are Republicans.

Kinskey and Biteman both touched on the subject of taxes, and said Wyoming's problem isn't a need for more taxes but a need for less spending. Senator Kinskey:

Rep. Jennings said legislation this year included five bills dealing with blockchain technology. He said the Legislature ran more than 500 bills, and more than 200 became laws.

This was Taft's first year in the state Legislature, and he said he was appointed to both the agriculture and tourism committees.

Kinner said he was appointed this year to the House appropriations committee, which means he also serves, along with Kinskey, on the joint appropriations committee.

Kinner talked about priorities for the appropriations committee and said he's excited about working in next year's legislative session with new Governor Mark Gordon.
