It's time once again to take a look back at the top stories from this past week with our Sheridan Media Week in Review.

The 62nd session of the State Legislature got underway this past week. The session is a budget session, so any non-budget bills require two-thirds approval by lawmakers for introduction.

The Senate voted not to consider legislation intended to change the death penalty in Wyoming to firing squad for inmates on death row. Lethal injection is currently the method used in Wyoming, with the gas chamber as backup.

Senator Bruce Burns said his motive for the legislation centered around the fact that states have been having trouble acquiring the drugs used for lethal injection.


Representative Mike Madden spoke with Sheridan Media's Aaron Palmer about the first week of the budget session, where he said he was a bit surprised with the amount of private bills that were introduced.
