Wyoming Constitution and Legislation
See also a database of statewide ballot measures maintained by the National Conference of State Legislatures.
- Constitution (Wyo. Const.)
- Session Laws of Wyoming (Wyo. Sess. Laws)
The session laws are also known as “chaptered bills” in Wyoming. There is no archive of session laws; however, the bill lists linked above (1) show which bills were chaptered for each legislative session and (2) provide links to the enrolled versions, which are the bills as presented to the governor, to be signed or vetoed.
NOTE—The legislature meets for not more than 40 days in odd-numbered years in general session and for approximately 20 days in even-numbered years for a budget session. The governor may call the legislature into special session.

Wyoming Ordinances and Home-Rule Charters
Ordinances are local laws, commonly organized into codes, that have been enacted by municipalities — cities, towns, etc. — and counties. Charters are organic laws (similar in function to a constitution) of those local government entities for which “home rule” is authorized by state law. For local laws not found through the links given here, try the county web sites and municipality web sites at “State and Local Government on the Net” by Piper Resources, or a publisher’s web site:
