CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming legislators have released a report saying state lawmakers and their staff have handled increasingly intensive workloads in the past few years.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported that the state Legislative Service Office staff released the report Monday saying legislative committees work about 327 days of the year and less than 20% is during the actual 59-day legislative session.

Officials say the report builds on conversations about increasing compensation as workloads also increase.
