Wyo Budget Approved on Second Reading

February 7, 2013 State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
WY Capitol

The Wyoming Legislature concluded the 2nd reading of the supplemental budget bill yesterday.  The supplemental budget makes over $60 million in cuts in programs throughout state government, but appropriates close to $80 million in new spending, including $55 million toward building a new Engineering Building at the University of Wyoming.  State Representative Keith Gingery of Jackson Hole offered a budget amendment to remove the $55 million for the new engineering building.  Gingery argued that it does not make sense to make over $60 million in cuts to programs ranging from mental health, developmental preschools, unemployed worker training, but then turn around and give UW nearly that amount toward a new engineering building.  Gingery’s amendment failed.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
