During the 2017 legislative session, the Wyoming Legislature made changes to liquor laws that affected the establishments statewide. Under the new laws, buildings rather than rooms are licensed. Several issues have arisen regarding the change in wording.
On Jan. 16, in an effort to clear up confusion created by the wording, City Attorney Jim Peck presented a template for an authorization form for convenience stores that possess packaged liquor licenses. Under current city ordinance, no person under 21 is allowed to enter an establishment (building) possessing a packaged liquor license. The form gives convenience stores the ability to designate a room for the liquor instead of the entire building.
