ACLU-Wyoming's handy guide to one of the strangest legislative sessions ever

ACLU-Wyoming has released a handy guide to some of the kookier bills and amendments proposed by Republicans during the most recent legislative session. ACLU-Wyoming opposed items like Prescriptions for Marijuana Invalid, Validity of Marriages (a.k.a. "The Equality State Hates Gays and Lesbians"), Patriotism in the Classroom (a.k.a. "The Great Loyalty Oath Crusade" -- right out of "Catch -22") and Unlawful Protesting at a Funeral. One wonders if Republican legislators, particularly those Tea Party frosh from the Hinterlands and Casper, were actually sampling some of the prescription ganja they wanted to ban. ACLU-Wyoming also worked hard to support items like Voting Rights, Public Meetings, Public Records and Discrimination. Read the report here.
