Ban On Open Containers Moves Forward

Cheyenne, WY – The bill to ban open containers of alcohol in vehicles is moving to the state House. The Senate gave final approval to the proposal today. The vote was 26 to three. Senator Curt Meier was in the small minority that voted against the ban. He says if the state really wants to address safety on the highways there were other options than an outright ban on open containers. The bill now heads to the state House. It died there last year by one vote.
