CHEYENNE, Wyo. - A bill that would require most Wyoming college students get vaccinated against meningitis has died in the Senate.

Senate File 54 failed to get consideration on the Senate floor before a deadline last Friday.

The bill would have required meningitis vaccinations for students within 30 days of enrolling at the University of Wyoming and the state's community colleges.

A separate proposal to require students receiving Hathaway scholarships to perform some kind of volunteer community service in order to keep their scholarship money also died in the Senate.
