Legislative Bills Will Affect Colleges


Bills making their way through the Wyoming Legislature right now will have tangible effects on Wyoming’s community colleges.
Wyoming residents attending the state's seven community colleges will see a slight increase in tuition starting this fall. Students will be paying $5 more per credit hour.
And a Senate committee has endorsed two proposals that would allow people with concealed-carry permits to take weapons onto Wyoming college campuses and to state legislative and local government meetings. 
Supporters say law-abiding citizens who must meet stringent requirements to earn a concealed-carry permit shouldn't have their rights infringed upon. Opponents contend allowing guns on college campuses and at government meetings would increase the danger of a shooting and hinder police response.
