The Road to Statehood
On March 27, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 982, the Wyoming statehood bill by a vote of 139 to 127. The bill was debated extensively and those who voted against it did so because of the inclusion of women's suffrage in Wyoming's constitution.
On March 26, 1890 Representative Carey gave a speech in the House of Representatives to convince them to consider H. R. 982, to provide for the admission of the State of Wyoming into the Union.
On January 6, 1890 Mr. Springer introduced bill, H. R. 3830 providing for Statehood for Arizona, Idaho, New Mexico and Wyoming. This bill was read the first and second times, referred to the Committee on Territories and ordered to be printed. On January 13, 1890," Mr. Isaac S. Struble, Representative from Iowa, introduced bill, H. R. 4561, providing for Statehood for Wyoming. This bill was read the first and second times, referred to the Committee on Territories, and ordered to be printed. There is no further Congressional history on either of these bills.
