CHEYENNE — Gov. Mark Gordon signed one controversial anti-abortion bill late Friday night, while letting another pass into law without his signature to further implement a pro-life policy agenda.

The governor also allowed a piece of legislation described by opponents as anti-transgender become law without his signature, despite significant criticisms outlined in a letter he wrote to Secretary of State Chuck Gray.
