Tim French began serving as a Wyoming legislator in 2021 after he won the 2020 election for Park County Senate District 18. He has received a positive score for all three categories of Representation, Competence and Integrity and therefore has been ranked as High Trust.
He is up for reelection in 2024.
French noted that while those [minerals] industries are thriving right now, they remain “under assault” from President Joseph Biden’s administration. Biden campaigned on “going to end oil” and the country is currently producing 1 million barrels per day less oil than it did prior to the beginning of the Covid pandemic, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
The uncertainty about the future of the industry makes the governor’s savings proposal more important than ever, French said.
“My time on the legislature has taught me there are good times and bad times, and the good times don’t last forever,” French said. “So we need to save every dime while we can.”
Overall, French earns a (+) for Representation.
It appears that French missed three vote in 2023 General Session. All three were concurrence votes on 3/1/23 and include: SF94; SF127; and SF164.

In 2023 French was the primary sponsor of 0 bills, and he co-sponsored 21 bills. Favored sponsorship topics appear to be protection of constitutional rights, protection of the unborn and children. For more see French’s legislative webpage.
