Money Issues Mark State of the State
Cheyenne, WY – Governor Dave Freudenthal delivered his state of the state address Wednesday to the Wyoming Legislature. And he says the state should use its surplus to move forward.
During his speech, the Governor supported a wide range of projects from a wildlife trust fund, additional funding for highway construction and building water storage projects. Freudenthal also told lawmakers that he supports the Split Estate bill that could address disagreements between surface and mineral landowners. He also asked that legislators support putting the new medium security prison in Torrington and not let the issue become a regional political battle.
