Wildlife Trust Fund Gets More Cash
Cheyenne, Wy – A trust fund for enhancing wildlife in the state has more money in it following final action in the state Senate. The Senate increased funding in the Wildlife and Natural Resource Fund from 15 up to 30 million dollars. Opponents objected to taking money from what could be invested in the Permanent Mineral Trust Fund. Senator Charles Scott says putting that money in the Permanent Mineral Trust Fund would yield about 750-thousand dollars a year. He says the question is where the extra 15 million would be best spent.
Senators sided with wildlife and increased the funding. The bill now heads to the House.
