Cheyenne, the capital of Wyoming where bills become laws. Youth for Justice took three eighth graders and 19 high schoolers to Cheyenne to see how the bills get passed and lobby for the bills that are in the process of getting passed.

The three bills that are in the process of being passed are gunshot and stab wound reporting, opioid prescription limits, and Hathaway eligibility.

Wyoming is one of the only three states that does not require medical professionals to report gunshot and stab wounds to the police.

Another bill that is on the rise is the opioid prescription limits. This would make it so that doctors would have to limit the prescription to 15 pills per bottle. Which would also make it so that there is a less chance of extra pills lying around to get taken and used for the wrong reasons.

The last bill is the Hathaway eligibility this bill would allow student to take CTE classes instead of two years of foreign language classes in order to receive full Hathaway dollars.
