Legislative procedures

Each bill proposal will be introduced on the House or Senate floor before being referred to a committee for further consideration.

Bills that make it out of committee and back to the Senate or House have to be approved several more times in each chamber, along with any amendments to the original proposals, before heading to Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon’s desk for approval, or a veto.

Vetoed bills may still become law if they are approved afterward by two-thirds of the members of each chamber.

Gordon may also allow bills to become law without his signature.
