House and Senate Say: We Can Work It Out

Cheyenne, WY – Representatives and Senators are trying to work out differences in the state budget. Senators spent about 100 million dollars more than the house, with big differences in spending for such things as the wildlife trust fund and business ready communities. Despite this, a member of the committee hoping to reach a compromise is not worried. Representative Pete Jorgenson does not think it will be difficult to reach an agreement. Despite the fact that many in the house think their side overspent, Jorgenson does not think getting house members to sign off on an agreement will be messy.
