Governor And Speaker Debate Saving

Laramie, Wy – A day after the Governor released his state budget, Speaker of the House Fred Parady says the Governor did not save enough. The house would like to set aside around 300 million of the surplus. But Governor Dave Freudenthal says the state has too many current needs that makes that type of saving not realistic. But Speaker Parady thinks the Governors spending could force the state into tax increases. The Governor will next take his budget before the appropriations committee next week.
