Constitutional Freedom

Paid for by the Committee to Elect Tyler Lindholm

Unfortunately, not all of Wyoming’s current laws allow citizens to fully enjoy the most basic freedoms promised in the Bill of Rights. 

One glaring example I see is in forced blood draws for drivers who refuse a Breathalyzer following traffic stops. The Constitution explicitly specifies in the Fifth Amendment that “no person … shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself…” One’s blood is witness against himself, violating that freedom. 

Another hot-button issue in the last year is seen in Senate File 104, which stripped our Superintendent of Public Instruction of her constitutionally-guaranteed duties. Furthermore, this bill also neglected the voting rights of Wyoming’s citizens by effectively
nullifying the power of the vote.
