These are bills that we were able to pass or kill - thanks to your help!
This section includes bills that we opposed that passed and negatively impact women and families or that
we supported that failed and would have benefitted women, families, and Wyoming's communities.
INTERIM COMMITTEE TOPICS
Did you know that the Legislature determines priority topics to address in the interim between legislative sessions? Members bring suggestions to their Committees, Committees prioritize those suggestions and take them to Management Council, and Management Council sets out a slate of topics. Here are some of the topics we're tracking.
AGING SERVICES & PROGRAMS: CARING FOR CAREGIVERS AND WYOMING'S SENIORS
Women are more likely to be caregivers for the aging - both paid and unpaid - as well as statistically likely to outlive men. Issues facing our seniors have a direct impact on women's & their economic security.
WORKFORCE SERVICES: ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT & SECURITY
Gender wage gap, access to capital, support for economic diversification and development, wage increases: our focus is ensuring that government, private industry, and women work together.
CHILDCARE, PREGNANCY, AND WOMEN'S HEALTH
These topics came up individually, but we think that they are indivisible. Childcare, pregnancy, and women's healthcare are essential elements for workforce development and of economic development.
