More on the Special Session: “Lawmakers begin appropriating federal aid money”

Andrew Graham at WyoFile offers up a great summary of the Special Session, where we started, where we wound up. And ESPC’s own Chris Merrill weighed in.

From a technological standpoint, Chris Merrill, a transparency advocate and director of the Equality State Policy Center, called the special session a success. The LSO executed an ever-evolving series of debates, committee hearings and votes over video that anyone in the state could tune into online, with few hitches. “On short order the Legislative Service Office staff just did phenomenal work to make this as transparent a process as possible,” Merrill said.
