Mead Says State Remains Strong

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 lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
