Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Legislature this week will focus on crafting a state budget for the coming two years.

House Speaker Tom Lubnau and Senate President Tony Ross say they expect the general government appropriations bill will get its first reading in both houses on Monday.

Both houses will consider amendments throughout the week and should appoint a conference committee to resolve differences in their respective versions by Friday.

The bill calls for spending just over $3.5 billion from state’s General Fund to cover government operations for two years starting this July.

The Legislature’s Joint Appropriations Committee generally agreed with recommendations from Gov. Matt Mead to allocate $175 million to counties and local governments while also funding pay raises for most state employees for the first time in four years.
