CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming State Senate will consider a measure that ultimately could allow state voters to decide whether to change the state constitution to recognize an individual right to privacy.

Senators voted overwhelmingly on Monday to consider the measure. Supporters say it’s necessary to prevent recent technological changes from intruding on citizens’ privacy.

Lander Republican Sen. Cale Case is chairman of the Senate Corporations Committee. He told fellow senators on Monday that this year’s bill is similar to a measure that failed to pass last year with the addition of language recognizing the public’s right to attending meetings of government bodies or tracking government spending.
