The Wyoming Liberty Group attorneys delivered a letter to the Wyoming Secretary of State and the Wyoming Attorney General Monday, asking them to immediately cease enforcement of a provision of the Wyoming Election Code that limits aggregate political contributions in state elections to $25,000.The letter follows a decision by the United States Supreme Court last week,  McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, which overturned the aggregate contribution limit in federal law as an unconstitutional abridgement of free speech.

Wyoming Liberty Group staff attorney Steve Klein said  “the 2015 session is almost a year away and, most importantly, there is an election between now and then.” Klein said “by agreeing to cease enforcement of aggregate limits, the Secretary of State and Attorney General would make the 2014 state elections more competitive and prevent a potentially costly lawsuit that the state would almost certainly lose.”

Klein said the change would not alter the individual contribution limit for state candidates—currently $1,000—or any other provision of the Wyoming Election Code.
