I was going to run this story a few days ago about the bill, but it has already been killed. I guess it was the aircraft carrier that killed the legitimacy of the author’s concern.
Wyoming lawmakers on Tuesday voted down the state’s “Doomsday Bill,” which among other things, called for the state to explore buying an aircraft carrier, creating its own currency and starting a military draft for its own army.
The Wyoming House of Representatives voted 30-27 against the bill during a session Tuesday; 31 votes are needed to pass the bill. It already was stripped Monday of provisions for the aircraft carrier and draft. State Rep. Dan Zwonitzer (R-Cheyenne) said lawmakers did not debate the bill before the vote.
