CODY, Wyo. -

We have a follow-up to a story you first heard here on KULR-8.

The Wyoming legislature is considering a bill focused on enticing a pharmaceutical company to expand in Cody.

State Senator Hank Coe from Cody wants to persuade Philadelphia-based Lannett Company to increase it's drug-manufacturing operation.

An appropriations committee sent the bill to the full senate, but removed language approving a loan of nearly 25-million dollars from the state general fund.

The full senate can vote to restore the loan.

Coe says the expansion would create hundreds of jobs.
