CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Wyoming Legislature has convened in Cheyenne for its general session, which is set to run through early March.

Lawmakers were taking care of housekeeping matters on its first day, Tuesday, and won't get down to business until after Gov. Matt Mead delivers his annual state of the state address on Wednesday morning.

Legislative leaders say they face four major tasks this session. They will craft a supplemental state budget, address the proposal to expand state health care programs in response to the federal Affordable Care Act, consider the prospect of increasing state fuel taxes and address issues of school accountability.

Lawmakers also will introduce hundreds of bills on a range of other topics this session.
