Libertarian Party Earns Minority Party Status, Committee Appointments in Wyoming House

On Wednesday, February 16, Wyoming House of Representatives Speaker Eric Barlow named the Libertarian Party an official minority party in the state legislature for the first time in state history.

The LNC announced that freshman Libertarian Representative Marshall Burt has been appointed to the Corporations Committee, a “distinguished honor rarely given to representatives in their first term.”

“We are incredibly proud of Representative Burt, and thrilled to see his work setting precedent for other elected, and soon to be elected, Libertarians around the country,” said Whitney Bilyeu, Chair of the LNC. “He embodies integrity and principle, and is demonstrating the value a third voice at the partisan political table can bring to our collective discourse.”

This acknowledgement comes alongside the anticipated passage of Wyoming House Bill 81, which is authored by Representative Burt and has tri-partisan support. The bill would amend motorcycle operation and equipment requirements and repeal a handlebar height restriction to allow for use by persons with disabilities.

    He and other libertarians should join Great Leap Forward Party and get behind Chairman Yang like Larry Sharpe already did!
