Local leaders, legislators discuss budget
This week, state legislators will work through Wyoming’s supplemental budget bill, deciding, among other things, how much money to provide for local governments.
The budget bill, crafted by the Joint Appropriations Committee, recommends several critical departures from the draft budget Gov. Matt Mead proposed last month. Notably, the JAC’s budget fails to endorse the governor’s call to create a permanent stream of funding for local governments.
