Wyoming Liberty Group
Cheyenne: With the arrival of the March 31, 2014 deadline for health insurance applications through Wyoming’s federal health care exchange, and the failure to achieve enrollment goals, the Wyoming Liberty Group is calling for health insurance honesty as the threatened IRS penalties for non-compliance have been legislatively diluted to the point of ineffectiveness.

CHEYENNE – Wyoming Liberty Group, joined by Republic Free Choice, submitted public comments to the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) today, discussing problems with the federal agency’s proposed rulemaking regarding non-profit advocacy groups. The proposed rules come less than a year after the agency admitted to invasive scrutiny of numerous Tea Party groups that applied for nonprofit status.
UPDATE (3:30 PM): We have received word that Judge Skavdahl has considered and signed the proposed order. Effective immediately, “Defendant City of Cheyenne is enjoined from enforcing the provisions of Article 6.5 and Section 1.3.3 of the Cheyenne Unified Development Code, as those provisions pertain to signs relating to a candidate, issue, proposition, ordinance or other matter to be voted upon by the electors of the city or as those provisions pertain to signs conveying a philosophical, religious, political, charitable or other similar noncommercial message within the City of Cheyenne.”
CHEYENNE – Wyoming Liberty Group attorneys filed a motion for preliminary injunction in the federal district court in Cheyenne today, seeking immediate relief for Ron Williams in his case against the City of Cheyenne over political sign restrictions.
“If the court grants a preliminary injunction, it would prevent the City of Cheyenne from enforcing the unconstitutional time and quantity sign restrictions in the Unified Development Code until the case is resolved,” said Boyd Wiggam, counsel to Williams. “Williams’s case is very likely to succeed, so we believe this injunction is warranted.”
CHEYENNE – Wyoming Liberty Group attorneys sued the City of Cheyenne on behalf of resident Ronald Williams in the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming today, challenging provisions of the Cheyenne Unified Development Code (UDC) that restrict political signs on private property as an unconstitutional abridgement of free speech.
