Below is the Ethics Complaint against Senator Eli Bebout. (click title for full article)
This Complaint calls into issue matters of great public importance and concern over the pervasive efforts of the Wyoming Legislature to exceed its constitutional authority and to assume executive functions. At issue are contracts and actions taken with respect to what is known as the “Capitol Square Project.” Where the Legislature has been unwilling to constrain itself to its constitutional role, the Plaintiffs ask that the judiciary set the limits of the Legislature’s constitutional authority and restore the balance of powers, confining the Legislature to those powers prescribed to it by the Wyoming Constitution. This case represents only the latest in the inclination on the part of the Wyoming Legislature to exceed its constitutional authority.
CALL TO ACTION! – Amendment 25
I need you to activate your base this morning! We need emails sent to the House members.
There’s a budget amendment (Number 25) coming up today to the 2017-2018 Budget Bill, House Bill 1, that would ask almost 8,000 state employees to pay a little more for their health, dental and life insurance policies.
An example: With an annual deductible of only $350, a state employee electing single coverage for medical/dental pays only $122 per month. The state’s portion is over $900.
