Wyoming governor takes stock of the stimulus

Cheyenne, WY – A day after President Obama signed the federal recovery bill, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal said he will look carefully at the conditions attached to the stimulus money.

Freudenthal said it appears that a number of cities and counties in the state will receive federal funds, and that the state will see benefits in the areas of construction and energy development. But he said Wyoming will take only what it needs. Freudenthal said it will take time for the state to determine the exact amount of money available from the federal stimulus package.
