Laramie, WY –
The Equality State Policy Center is urging lawmakers to consider taxes and not just look at cutting budgets. Executive Director Dan Neal is urging lawmakers to both consider increased severance taxes as well as lifting sales tax exemptions.
"Always two sides to every budget. A revenue side and a spending side. And unless you are considering both sides, you are really not taking a comprehensive look that is needed and deserved."
Neal says he is especially troubled about caps on the health insurance program for children. The Governor says he does not currently support tax increases.
