CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming voters will decide three constitutional questions in today’s general election.
One proposal would amend the state Constitution to specify that competent adults have the right to make their own health care decisions.
Proponents pushed the amendment to voice opposition to the federal Affordable Care Act. They say they still see a place for the amendment despite a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court this summer that upheld portions of the federal law.
A second proposal would specify that the state will preserve citizens’ opportunities to hunt, fish and trap.
The final amendment would expand the powers of district court commissioners.
