The Wyoming Freedom Caucus, a group of conservative lawmakers in the Wyoming House of Representatives, is calling for a special session of the Wyoming Legislature to override a series of vetoes of bills by Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon.

That's according to a post on the group's Facebook page.

The post says the legislature needs to come back into session to "finish the job" of the recently concluded 2024 legislative session.

The group specifically says it's unhappy that Gordon vetoed the following bills:

HB 125 Repeal Gun-Free Zones

SF 054 Homeowner Tax Exemption

HB 148 Regulation of Abortion

SF 103 Wyoming Prime Act

SF 013 Federal Land Use Plan-legal action authorized

The caucus is not happy that Governor Gordon "exercised his line-item veto authority to provide further public funding divisive and illegal  "DEI" programming at the University of Wyoming."

Legislature Has Three Days Available This Year

The session adjourned this year with three days still available. That's because the 2023 session wrapped up three days early and those days can still be ''banked'' over two years including 2023-2024.

The post calls on Senate President Ogden Driskill and House Speaker Albert Sommers to call the legislature back into session. At the last report, neither Sen. Driskill nor Rep. Sommers had responded to the call for a special session.
