Wyoming's "Anti-Discrimination" Bill Fails

By  | 

CHEYENNE, WY - On Tuesday afternoon in the Wyoming legislature, the House voted down the 1st reading of SF115 by a vote of 33 to 26.

If it had passed, it would have blocked employers from firing an employee on the basis of gender or sexual orientation.

This is a win for those who believe the bill would have put those it was said to protect in an "ultra-protected class", but a loss for gay-rights advocates who gained a bit of momentum last year when Wyoming's gay marriage ban was overturned.
