Locks for Love Donation in House [AUDIO]
The house voted to accept the joint conference committee report on the lottery bill. Representative Michael Greer (HD-27), who voted against concurrence on the bill on Monday, says he supported the conference committee report because the compromise meant the money would go to cities and towns…
When you go to the smaller communities, the sales tax on food was a significant portion of their revenue, an we have been back filling that….this could generate money for cities and towns….
Representative Kendell Kroeker (HD-35) says he thinks the session had more disappointments than successes, starting with the supplemental budget.
For the most part, I thought it was a pretty conservative budget…but not pleased we spent more than we cut…
He says his biggest disappointment was the failure last of the gun bills in the Senate.
I would have liked to at least see them get a fair debate in the Senate…..
A special moment in the House when Speaker Pro Tempore, Representative Rosie Berger (HD-51) cut about 12 inches of her hair to support fellow lawmaker Representative Mary Throne and other cancer survivors.
I had done some research a couple of years ago, when I lost a dear friend to cancer…
Representative Throne (HD-11) says she was fairly overwhelmed by the gesture.
I think it hopefully sends a message of compassion an knowing that you never alone…
Berger says the hair will be donated to Pantene’s “Locks for Love” hair donation program to be processed into a wig which will be sent to the Wyoming Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Cheyenne, to be donated to an adult cancer survivor.
