CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A bill that seeks to get emergency medical technicians working sooner in Wyoming has been approved by state lawmakers.

Senate File 136 has passed both chambers and will go to Gov. Matt Mead.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that the bill would allow EMTs to get conditional licenses that would let them work right away while they wait for criminal background checks to clear.

Currently, EMTs must wait up to six weeks before background checks are finished and they cannot go to work until then.
