Legislators Finish with Budget
Cheyenne, Wy – The House and Senate finally agreed to a budget and it now heads to the Governor. Among the highlights are 33 million new dollars for local government, money for a 16 hundred dollar pay raise for all full time education employees, and 76 million for a new prison in Torrington. One thing that was not funded was money for retiree health insurance. Committee members say they will have a study this year and will probably look to address the matter during next year's budget session. Senator John Hines says there were many compromises, but he thinks they are doing a lot for the state.
