Wyoming House Freedom Caucus: This Was Not What The People Wanted
A group of conservative members of the Wyoming House of Representatives says the recent special session of the Wyoming Legislature on a federal vaccine mandate fell short of expectations.
That's according to Rep. Rachel Rodriguez-Williams [R-Park County], who posted a video on the House Freedom Caucus Facebook page. In her video, Rodriguez-Williams noted that the legislature only approved one bill. "House Enrolled Act 1 is not enough," Rodriguez-Williams said in the video.
She said that although the bill will provide resources and guidance for a court fight against the mandate "This is not what the people wanted." She added, "They wanted stronger legislation with exemptions, such as religious exemptions without a litmus test, medical exemptions approved by a physician, natural immunity, and prohibition on mandating authorization of emergency use vaccines."
Rodriguez-Williams also noted that when the session adjourned, Governor Mark Gordon chose to address the house in a letter "instead of standing before the body in person."
She went on to say that while the governor said that litigation is not a matter of sounding off "We believe that freedom does not come from litigation." She later added that there is a national effort underway to expand the powers of government and "We need leaders to sound off."

Several bills aimed at such things as allowing parents to get exemptions upon request for their children from school face mask mandates and vaccine requirements and a range of other bills against various COVID-19 related mandates failed to win final approval in the special session.
