Senator Yin (R — Teton) was heard saying that the per diem he and all legislators receive doesn’t cover his costs for gasoline driving to the sessions.  The $105 per diem used today was current in 2005.  Today, the federal government GSA recommends $156 for WY.  House Speaker Sommers (R — Pinedale) said he worries that it’s become too expensive for “average citizens” to serve.   The new per diem will also benefit 500 others on boards and commissions.  This should have been a shoo-in bill.  It wasn’t.  LWVWY thanks to the bill supporters and advocates.

LWVWY set SF 61 as a high priority issue and it has passed
