Wyoming: New bill looks to add Recall Law for city officials

Wyoming Representative Bunky Loucks (R) has submitted a bill to allow recalls for city officials throughout the state. The bill seems to allow political recalls and would require 20% of the signatures of registered voters. Wyoming does have a recall law, but very few areas (if any) really allow it.

The bill seems to have come about after Mills Town Council decided to eliminate their fire department in 2019, a decision that was since walked back. There was an attempt to recall Mayor Seth Coleman.

The bill requires a two-thirds vote to be considered on the floor during a budget session.

Update: Here's another Wyoming local recall bill, this one with a 25% signature threshold.

Update 2: Here's another bill by Representative John Bear.
