Mead Done Cutting Budget For 2016

wyoming-flag-graphicWyoming Governor Matt Mead says that he is not planning on making additional cuts to the states budget until the January legislative session. Mead sliced $250 million from the states budget in June. The Governor stated that if budget cuts continue they will result in Wyoming State government employees having to be laid off. Less than ten state employees lost their jobs during the last round of cuts. The governor has also come out against increasing taxes on wind generation, groceries and property. Mead believes that the state should dip into state savings to combat the budget issues.  Wyoming’s rainy day fund currently has $1.8 billion, which is the largest in the country when compared to state general fund expenses.
