Change to Wyoming Notice Requirements Relating to Business Entities

Wyoming House Bill 0023 was signed by Wyoming Governor Matt Mead on March 1, 2017. WY HB0023 allows the WY Secretary of State to send notices via first class mail and/or email and electronic means, rather than by certified mail. In addition, the bill permits the WY Secretary of State to return rejected documents within 15 days instead of 5 days and eliminates the publication of notice that a LLP’s registration has lapsed. The bill becomes effective July 1, 2017.  See below for a link to the bill.
