History

Wyoming State Representatives Dan Zwonitzer (R-Cheyenne) and Charles Pelkey (D-Albany) attempted to introduce HB 122, Death with Dignity Act, on January 12, 2017. The bill was then not considered for introduction.

In 2015, Representative Zwonitzer introduced HB 119, the Wyoming Death with Dignity Act, which was later tabled by a House committee with the recommendation for the proposed law to be researched by an interim committee.

The 2015 session was the second time an aid-in-dying bill was considered in the Wyoming legislature, the first having occurred in 2004 (SF 7).
