Wyoming Governor Matt Mead will allow a bill clarifying requirements for obtaining an alcohol manufacturer's license to become law without his signature.

In  Feb. 20 letter to Senate President Eli Bebout (R-Riverton), the governor noted that while he personally doesn't own a business which would be impacted by the bill, his brother does.

The governor says that to avoid any question about a personal interest he will allow the bill to become law without his signature.

The governor's brother Brad Mead is part owner of Wyoming Whiskey, which is based in Kirby, Wyoming.

Senate File 13 will become law after three days without the governor's signature. Meanwhile, the governor has signed the following bills into law:
