CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Wyoming Legislative Special session started Tuesday morning.

The meeting will help decide the direction the state will take regarding the Federal vaccine mandate.

“Well today the people are here to express their views. They’re very passionate about their individua liberty being threatened by the vaccine mandate,” said Bo Biteman, Senator Dist. 21.

Demonstrators lined the front doors of the Capitol on Tuesday as they voiced their concerns about their liberty to decide their health and bodies.

People with signs and American flags stood by as speakers talked about government over-reach, individual liberty and loved ones who have died from the vaccine.

“A lot of what we need is people speaking and not just getting in an echo chamber of ‘I agree with you, I agree with you,’ it feels good. But I think it’s always useful to always hear stories to contradict what we think is true,” said Ethan Faber, resident.

The special session will continue this week.
