Legislative Committee

The Legislative Committee initiates and promotes legislation beneficial to Wyoming libraries, disseminates accurate and timely information about state and federal issues affecting Wyoming libraries, and educates the Wyoming library community and its advocates about the legislative process.

The committee consists of at least nine members representing the various sections, geographical areas of the state, and types of libraries. The WLA President, the State Librarian (or designee), and the ALA Councilor are non-voting, ex-officio members. The appointed members of the committee serve four-year terms with no term limits, staggered so that at least three members are appointed every year.

The committee takes direction and advice from the WLA lobbyist on managing library legislative issues and annually reviews the lobbyist’s effectiveness in meeting the association’s goals. This evaluation is given to the Executive Board. The committee advises the board on the selection or retention of the lobbyist; however, the Executive Board makes all final hiring or retention decisions.
