School Funding Bill Heading To Governor’s Desk

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A proposal to spend about $600 million on school construction and renovations over the next two years is on its way to Gov. Matt Mead.

The Wyoming House voted 51-8 to give final approval to Senate File 105 on Thursday.

Representatives rejected an amendment to reduce the funding to $245 million.

Rep. Matt Teeters, a Republican from Lingle, said the bill had grown by over $83 million since it was first introduced. With revenues declining, he said the amendment would give the Legislature time to consider what it can afford.

But Rep. Steve Harshman, a Casper Republican, said several districts are dealing with capacity problems.

Among the things the bill would pay for are a new school building and property for four new schools in Cheyenne.
