Wyoming Supreme Court Sides With Gordon in Capitol Renovation
A statement from Gov. Matt Mead's office indicated Capitol renovation work will be unaffected by the ruling.
Treasurer Mark Gordon issued a statement today in response to the ruling.
"I am pleased the Supreme Court has ruled on this fundamental constitutional matter and I want to thank the Court for its careful consideration of the issues involved. Every elected official takes an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, a responsibility I take very seriously. I brought this suit to clarify the role of the Treasurer in the process of contracting on behalf of the state. With today' s ruling, we have clear direction on the role and authority of the Treasurer now and into the future."
"I appreciate Governor Mead's leadership on this important project and I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Capitol Oversight Committee to bring this important project to an appropriate and fiscally responsible close."
