CHEYENNE – With state lawmakers set to convene virtually Tuesday, a tentative schedule for the rest of the 66th Wyoming Legislature’s upcoming general session was released Monday, providing an initial road map for the coming months as elected officials grapple with state budget cuts worth hundreds of millions of dollars amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the one-day session Tuesday, lawmakers plan to carry out their constitutionally required duties, including the election of leadership and adoption of rules, before recessing until a later date as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19. The session could be reconvened in person March 1, though whether that happens will largely depend on the status of the state's COVID-19 case numbers, as well as vaccine availability, in the weeks prior.
