In Wyoming, one of the more conservative states in the nation, legislators are scheduled to hear testimony next week on three LGBT rights bills, including one for marriage equality.
Bills for marriage equality, domestic partnerships, and nondiscrimination have just been introduced, according to the National Center for Lesbian Rights. The House Corporations Committee will hear testimony on the first two Monday, and if the committee approves one or both, they will move to a vote by the full House in a few days. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hear testimony on the nondiscrimination bill Wednesday.
NCLR, the Human Rights Campaign, and Wyoming Equality are working together in the effort to get the legislation passed, and votes are expected to be very close. NCLR has information on how to contact Wyoming lawmakers here.
