CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — One of the main backers of a failed proposal to expand the role of Wyoming district court commissioners isn't interested in trying to pass it again.

State Rep. Keith Gingery was one of the main sponsors of a bill that led to Amendment C. It would have allowed commissioners to hear and make recommendations on cases when district judges were busy.

Gingery told the Wyoming Tribune Eagle (http://bit.ly/10GVJlr ) that it took three years of work to get it on the ballot. He's not interested in pursuing that again but said someone else may try in a couple of years.

He thinks backers did a poor job of explaining to voters what the amendment would do.

Amendment C was the only one of three statewide amendments that didn't pass.
