There is no legislative activity around death with dignity in Wyoming in 2018.
What does Death with Dignity mean to you?
Most people join our movement because of a heartbreaking personal experience. We receive stories of such experiences every day, and every day they inspire us to work toward ensuring terminally-ill Americans have the freedom to decide how they die. We want to hear from you. What's your death with dignity story? What inspired you to get involved in the cause?
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).
