Secretary of State Gray responds to Governor's vetoes

Acknowledging receipt of Governor Mark Gordon’s veto letters addressed to him in his capacity as Wyoming Secretary of State and in accordance with Article 4, Section 8 of the Wyoming State Constitution, Secretary Chuck Gray issued a response noting his disagreement with many of the vetoes in a letter.

“While acknowledging receipt of these vetoes, our republic is built on discourse and debate,” Secretary Gray said. “In this vein, I wanted to respond to some of the points made in your letters that I disagree with as well as express disagreement with many of your veto actions. Wyoming can and should lead the way in providing meaningful property tax relief, protecting the unborn, defending our Second Amendment rights from tyranny at all levels, ensuring a way to fight back against attacks on our core industries, and guaranteeing that our only land grant university represents the values of Wyomingites, not leftist elites. Unfortunately, your vetoes do not do that and in that way set us in the wrong direction.”

In closing, Secretary Gray noted, “While these are not the only veto actions that I took issue with, I felt it was important to submit responses expressing my opposition to some of the points made in your veto letters addressed to me and to many of your veto actions themselves. I look forward to working with you to address these issues and to build a conservative future for our state.”
