Governor emphasizes highways, local governments
Speaking in Cody this month, Gov. Matt Mead pitched his proposed $2.74 billion state budget for the coming two years as one that would allow the state to improve its roads and infrastructure, aid local governments and still sock some money away.
“I think what it does is, it’s a realistic budget,” Mead told a gathering of county commissioners on Jan. 5. “It recognizes that the state of Wyoming is in pretty good shape right now. It recognizes the state of Wyoming has the ability to do some good things right now.”
