Both the house and senate have adopted the joint conference committee report on the biennial budget bill with a vote in the house of 41 to 18 and 20 to 9 in the Senate. Teton County Senator Mike Gireau says the budget has some good things in it for Jackson.
“From my side personally, I’m excited about the fact that there’s money in the budget for Central Wyoming College to finally have their own home in Jackson. To be able to have classrooms to teach culinary arts students and certified nursing assistants – and room for the staff to have their own home; and we’ll hopefully have some other classes there in the future.”
Gireau added there is also money in the budget that could help seniors in Teton County through his tax rebate program.
“It’s going to be a real positive thing for people, for their land values going up – people on fixed incomes. It’ll be a help. It won’t be a total answer. Hopefully we’ll keep working on that.
The bill now heads to the governor’s desk for his signature.
