Teton County’s State Representative Keith Gingery is applauding Governor Matt Mead’s proposed budget submitted to the Wyoming Legislature late last week. Gingery points in particular to more than $10-million the governor has proposed toward the reduction of the waiting list for people with Developmental disabilities. Gingery says, “I believe we must prioritize spending; and top on my list is helping those that cannot always help themselves — our most vulnerable population.” Gingery also welcomes the proposed $20-million for local governments and the additional $15-million proposed for the Wildlife Natural Resource Trust. Gingery says he is also very pleased that Mead has proposed adding $15-million to the landfill fund that will help communities like Teton County defray the cost of landfill cleanup. The Governor’s biennium budget is to be considered by the appropriations committee in mid-January, and when the state legislature convenes February 10th.
