Governor Gordon Talks State Amphibian

One of the bills that made it all the way through the 2019 General Session and was signed into law by Governor Mark Gordon was Senate File 50. This legislation designates the Blotched Tiger Salamander as Wyoming’s official State Amphibian. Governor Gordon explains how he felt about signing that bill.

Some have been critical of bills that they deem are not crucial to the State’s wellbeing saying the legislature should focus on more important areas. Gordon explains that this bill is an example of a non essential bill, that serves an important purpose.

Senate File 50 went into effect immediately upon receiving the Governor’s signature.
