Wyoming Lawmakers Kill Domestic Partnerships But Advance Nondiscrimination Protections

Hopes for legal recognition of same-sex couples in Wyoming were dashed Wednesday, as the Wyoming House voted down a domestic partnership bill with a 24-34 vote. A House committee had similarly voted down a same-sex marriage bill earlier this week, but advanced the domestic partner bill to the full chamber.

Meanwhile, the Equality State’s Senate Judiciary Committee voted 4-1 to approve Senate File 131, which would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Before its passage, an amendment was added that specifies that religious organizations would still be free to make hiring decisions according to their beliefs. Three of the yes votes were Republicans.
