in News

By Cowboy State Daily

A proposal to bar Wyoming’s cities and counties from declaring themselves sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants was killed in Wyoming’s House on Wednesday.

HB 151 would have withheld state money and state-administered federal money from any local government that adopted an ordinance to keep its employees from discussing immigration issues with federal agencies.

The bill was narrowly defeated in its first reading in the House, with 36 representatives voting to kill it and 22 voting to move it to a second reading.
