CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Two proposals that would have allowed firearms in Wyoming schools were among the bills that died Friday when a legislative deadline passed.

The Wyoming Tribune-Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1frb0ia ) lawmakers ran out of time to consider more than 30 bills that had been introduced and approved by committee but had yet to be voted on by the full House of Representatives or the Senate.

House Bill 111 and Senate File 109 differed somewhat, but they both would have allowed school districts to decide if they want to allow firearms on school property.

The newspaper reports the deadline passed in the Senate because the majority floor leader said some gun advocates and school officials opposed it. The deadline passed in the House because lawmakers were busy voting on budget amendments.
