Wyoming’s revenue picture is dire. Thanks to declining energy and sales tax revenue Governor Mead has already started cutting nearly 300 million dollars from the two-year budget that was approved by the legislature in March.
The Wyoming legislative session has come to an end and few seem to be leaving Cheyenne feeling satisfied.
One of the few people leaving with a positive feeling is Casper Representative Tim Stubson. Stubson was heavily involved in crafting the state budget and voted against such things as Medicaid expansion and voted for a number of budget cuts. But he says when you look at the state’s finances those cuts were needed.
