The Wyoming House of Representatives has set aside the consideration of issues passed onto them by the Senate in order to take up the supplemental budget. Representative Keith Gingery explains that while this is not a budget year in the biennium, there are needs that have come up since the budget was passed last year. Consideration of the supplemental budget comes just at the time the national budget request submitted by the White House has been met with sharp criticism by lawmakers there for not being crafted conservatively. Gingery says Wyoming’s budget, by contrast, is another matter entirely. Gingery admits there are some large expenditure the state will face in the future, including an environmental requirement to line the state’s landfills and create new water sources for Gillette and northeastern Wyoming. Gingery says the legislature is working to be sure money is set aside to be able to pay for such obligations.
