Sponsors of an effort to repeal a new state law say Wyoming's referendum process makes it too difficult to succeed in gaining access to the statewide ballot.
Jennifer Young, of Torrington, was among those who submitted petition signatures this week in hopes of forcing a statewide vote on Wyoming's new law redefining the state superintendent of public instruction's powers and duties.
Young says the state's referendum process is designed for such efforts to fail.
Dan Neal of the Equality State Policy Center in Casper says Wyoming is one of the most difficult states for an initiative or referendum to succeed.
State Republican Sen. Cale Case, of Lander, says Wyoming's process needs to be less restrictive but not too easy.
He suggested allowing online signature gathering that can be verified.
