Lawmakers Get to Work

Cheyenne, Wy – The 58th Legislative Session kicked off Tuesday. During opening remarks the new speaker of the House continues to push for savings this legislative session.
Randall Luthi told house members that putting more money in the states permanent mineral trust fund is a visionary move. That fund cannot be touched, but provides interest income. Luthi says building the fund up will help future legislators.
Luthi also thinks the state can fund some important projects like a Premier Graduate school for business, and teacher salary increases. Luthi thinks this will be an exciting session, but adds he will remain wary.
