Sponsors:
Representatives Jennings, Baker, Biteman, Blake, Brown, Clem, Dayton, Edwards, Eklund, Lindholm, Loucks, McKim, Steinmetz, and Winters; and Senators Baldwin, Barnard, Bebout, Case, and Kinskey
Summary:

This bill would recognize parental rights as a fundamental right in the state of Wyoming and require any infringement by the state to be the least restrictive means of furthering a compelling state interest. This codifies the strict scrutiny standard of review, which is the strongest legal protection courts have given to our most fundamental rights.
