WY Leg. Comm. Declines to Endorse Measures to Loosen or Tighten Disclosure

Casper Star Tribune: “A Wyoming legislative committee declined to relieve out-of-state political action committees of the requirement to disclose contributions and expenditures in Wyoming.”

“A measure suggested by the Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office’s elections division would have exempted PACs registered in other states from reporting in Wyoming.

“But members of the Joint Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Interim Committee declined to change the law after being reminded of the unique financial reporting requirements in Wyoming, such as the ban on corporations donating to PACs, said Rep. Cale Case, R-Lander.”

Casper Star Tribune: “A legislative panel declined to sponsor a bill that would have required increased financial disclosure from groups such as corporations or political action committees that spend money in political races but don’t communicate or consult with a campaign.

“The Joint Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Interim Committee declined to sponsor the bill at a meeting about two weeks ago in Cheyenne because the language was too vague, said committee co-chairman Sen. Cale Case, R-Lander.”
