Mead Says State Remains Strong

January 10, 2013 State of Wyoming No Comments
Mead SOS

During his State of the State address yesterday as Governor Mead spoke of his proposed budget trimming, Mead took a shot at the US Congress which has not passed a federal budget for several years.  Mead told the Wyoming Lawmakers that unlike the federal government,Wyoming is bound to live within its means.  Mead told the lawmakers, “We’ll keep our budget as flat as possible, not doubling every ten years as it did the last decade. We will fund important items that position Wyoming well for the future but always draw the line on over spending.”  Mead admitted that this may involve difficult decisions, but he said what comes out of the session needs to be about the state’s future and not about personal or political popularity.   Mead credits the state’s energy resources, tourism, agriculture, natural treasures, businesses, and most of all, the state’s citizens for keeping the state as strong as it is.  That, he says, is significant since not the case of every state around the country at this time.  However, to keep the state solvent, he is urging the lawmakers to pad the “rainy-day account,” reduce the budget, cut the size of the government, and streamline state regulations; all of which would place the state in a better posture to weather tough times if they come.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
