The bills would help bring high-speed broadband to more areas of the state and start to find ways to improve air service in Wyoming. Some House members were skeptical about the need to eventually spend $15 million on air service, but House Majority Leader David Miller told a few horror stories about getting major business leaders to Riverton. 

Miller said service gets canceled and flights are delayed on a consistent basis.

We attract businesses here to make things happen, they are actually here to try to bring business into businesses who actually pay taxes in Wyoming. You know we need to fix this.”

Miller says air service is critical to Wyoming’s future. Both bills will be debated two more times.
