Wyoming lawmakers will convene for a two-day special session May 15-16 to allocate federal CARES Act funding and address pressing issues regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Wyoming Legislature hasn't met in a special session since 2004.

Associate Legislative Information Officer Ryan Frost says due to social distancing guidelines, and for the safety of the public and legislators, the capitol won't be open to the public during the special session.

He says an audio and video livestream of the House, Senate and any potential joint conference committees will be available at wyoleg.gov.
