Wyoming: House Committee Passes LGBT Protections Bill To Full House On 6-2 Vote

A bill that would ban discrimination in Wyoming based on sexual orientation passed out of a state House committee on a vote of 6-2 Friday.

The bill has had a relatively easy journey having been approved by the Senate and now heads to the full House after the House Labor, Health and Social Services Committee approved the legislation on Friday.

Although there was one small bump in the road when GOP state Rep. Harlan Edmonds attempted to insert an “effective date” of “when hell freezes over.”

Harlen was then ejected from the hearing.

The House is expected to take up the legislation this coming week.
