CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Legislature has adjourned for the year after a late night.
Lawmakers were scheduled to adjourn by midnight but toiled until 2am Thursday on last-minute business including votes to override supplemental budget vetoes by Gov. Mark Gordon.
Just two of the 14 budget vetoes were successfully overridden by two-thirds votes in both the House and Senate. One overridden veto had to do with positions in the State Engineer’s Office. The other involved funding to lure commercial air service to Wyoming.
Gordon praised the supplemental budget as fiscally conservative but worried that certain parts infringed upon the authority of the executive branch.
In all, some 503 pieces of legislation were considered by lawmakers since the session convened on January 8.
It would be the last of four legislative sessions held in temporary office space if renovations to the Wyoming Capitol are completed this summer as planned.
