Wyoming Legislative Leaders Bebout, Madden Plan to Retire
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Two longtime Wyoming legislators, including Senate President Eli Bebout, say they will be closing out their statehouse careers soon.
Bebout said he has no plans to seek re-election in 2020 when his current term expires. The Riverton Republican first started serving in the House of Representatives in 1987 and has been in the Senate since 2007.
After more than three decades in the Legislature, Bebout said it's time to make way for younger people in the Legislature.
And House Revenue Committee Chairman Mike Madden announced this week he will not seek re-election after his term expires this year. It will bring the Buffalo Republican's 12-year tenure in the Legislature to a close.
Madden cited several reasons, including changes in the state's elected leaders.
