The 2016 Legislative budget session wraps up this week. One of the big things lawmakers have been discussing over the past month is funding for Wyoming’s K-12 schools. The House and Senate have agreed to a budget that will cut about $36 million dollars from education in the next two school years.

That’s a 1 percent cut for next school year, and a 1.4 percent cut for the following one. The cut is less than what the Joint Appropriation Committee proposed earlier this year, but school districts say they’ll feel it.
