The Legislative Forum provides an opportunity for businesses, organizations, and individuals to bring topics before a panel of local state legislators prior to the next session of the Wyoming State legislature. The state’s 85th Legislative Session will convene on Feb. 12, 2018.
Legislators expected to be present include Sen. Bruce Burns (Senate District 21), Sen. Dave Kinskey (Senate District 22), Rep. Bo Biteman (House District 51), Rep. Mark Kinner (House District 29), Rep. Mark Jennings (House District 30) and Rep. Mike Madden (House District 40).
The Chamber is now scheduling the presentation times for this forum, and they fill quickly. A limited number of 15-minute time slots are available, which include 10 minutes to address legislators and five minutes for questions and answers. Presentation materials (handouts, fact sheets, etc.) will need to be submitted to the Chamber by Nov. 14 and will be provided by the Chamber to the legislators prior to the forum. Due to time constraints that day,
Powerpoint or other computer-based presentations will not be allowed.
The forum is open to the public, and a schedule of presentations will be announced prior to the event.
