Lawmakers and the state’s executives have filed annual financial disclosure forms in advance of the forthcoming legislative session, including in some cases a newly required list of contracts they hold with the state.

The 2020 disclosure forms required of the state’s senators, representatives and five statewide elected officials are published below. The officials’ disclosures — covering most of the previous year and through Jan. 15, 2020 — seek to protect the public from conflicts of interest.

This year those filings must list business entities in which officials hold a 10% or greater interest and that have contracts with the state for services and supplies valued at more than $5,000. The listing must include the length and nature of the contract, according to the law, but doesn’t require a dollar amount.

Wyoming forms also require officials to list the offices and directorships they held in business enterprises, as well as if they were salaried employees. They must list sources of income, including from what employer or business interest. They also must divulge whether they have security or interest-earning investments and/or investment income from real estate, leases or royalties.

The forms do not ask how much an elected official earns from any of the above or the name, nature or other details of any income-producing investments.

The Wyoming Constitution relies on members of the House and Senate to self-report conflicts and states that any lawmaker “who has a personal or private interest in any measure proposed or pending before the Legislature shall disclose the fact to the house of which he is a member, and shall not vote thereon.”

  1. I don’t see where Lindholm reported his Beefchain interests. Amazing how the average citizen of Wyoming will walk into the Secretary of State’s Office and transparently record their LLC’s, however, our elected officials chose to hide their business interests behind registered agents.

  2. Even Tyler “Beefchain” Lindholm entered his fatted cashcalf ( American Certified Brands llc ) into the showring. Albiet, obviously and embarassingly reluctantly, judging from the comparatively miniscule size of the font he used to proclaim his affiliation to this group of proactive innovators. As I understand it, blockchain is supposed to be all about quantifiable veracity with regard to monetary transactions; and this disclosure requirement was crafted to be the embodiment of qualified transparency. A more perfect union of these two sacred principles would be as in the words of the great Maguire…. to ” Show Me The Money” as well………
