One of the early casualties of the more than 350 proposed pieces of legislation to be considered during the 2020 Budget Sessions would have expanded Medicaid in Wyoming. House Bill 75 did not even garner the majority vote that would allow for its introduction during a General Session much less the ⅔ in favor it would have taken it to be a topic of discussion this year. Local Senator Bo Biteman was pleased to see that outcome.
Senator Biteman never had a chance to vote against House Bill 75 as it originated in the other legislative body. The House vote that sealed the measures fate was 20 yays, 39 nays, and 1 excused. The local Representatives unanimously voted against the legislation.
