CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Democratic lawmakers in Wyoming for years have floated bills aimed at preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians but have found little support.

Now, they seem to have gained some — among Republican lawmakers.

It remains to be seen whether gay rights supporters in the overwhelmingly Republican Legislature can pass measures that would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, create civil unions or even gay marriage.

So far, nine of the legislature’s 78 Republicans have signed on as co-sponsors of the various bills. Eight of the Legislature’s 12 Democrats are on board with at least one of the bills. Committee hearings on two of the bills were scheduled for Monday.
