Legislators To Debate Wyoming Budget
Cheyenne, WY – The Wyoming legislature will address the state budget for the final time on Monday. Key issues addressed on Friday included additional money for U-W athletics, but the Senate said no to several other proposals including one to save new surplus money next year. Senator Jayne Mockler admits she's concerned about this year's spending. Mockler says the legislature has spent all the money so there's none left to fix the Capitol or Supreme Court or even to build a new prison. She says it's kind of amazing the legislature could spend a billion dollars in ten days. Senator John Schiffer is concerned the state is heading down the road of too many little savings accounts.
