CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A bill that would have allowed residents to carry concealed firearms to state or local government meetings had died without getting a vote in the state Senate.

House Bill 86, which passed the House earlier on a 50-10 vote, failed to meet a legislative deadline requiring bills to be voted out of committee by the end of the day Friday.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1KT4KT0 ) that the proposal was the only bill introduced this legislative session that sought to expand when and where residents can carry guns.

It would have repealed the state’s prohibition preventing gun owners from carrying concealed firearms into government meetings, such as city council meetings or legislative hearings.
