Governor Proposes Budget

Cheyenne, Wy – Governor Dave Freudenthal is recommending the state spend almost a billion more dollars this year in his proposed budget.
Governor Freudenthal says his focus is on getting money to local communities, highways and other construction projects. He says this matches up well with what state politicians said they support before the election.
The Governor's largest request is
for 250 million dollars in property tax relief. However, he expects that request may have a difficult time passing.
