Governor Mead says Wyoming In Good Shape

Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead says he believes the state is in good shape going into the legislative budget session that starts next week.

Mead’s State of the State address will kick off the legislative session that starts Monday in Cheyenne. Lawmakers have set aside four weeks to craft a budget for the two-year funding period that starts July 1.

Mead told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he’s generally satisfied with the Legislature’s Joint Appropriations Committee’s recommendations on his budget proposals.

The committee’s budget recommendations closely track Mead’s on the issues of pay raises for state employees and supporting $175 million in state funding for counties and local governments.

Mead says he intends to announce shortly after the session whether he will seek re-election to another four-year term.
