Housing Development Funding Slashed
Cheyenne, WY – The state House has cut the money going to a program to build more housing in the state. Originally the bill would have put 30 million dollars into the program, now it's down to one million. That's enough to develop 50 homes or essentially a pilot project. Opponents of the house-building bill say it gets the state involved in the free market and subsidizes housing developers. But Representative Bernadine Craft from Rock Springs argues it is instead, a chance to create needed infrastructure for new affordable housing.
