Cheyenne, WY – The legislature was able to use the state's surplus to help economic development efforts according to a Cheyenne Representative. Pete Illoway says the most impact will come from a bill creating sale tax exemption for manufacturing equipment. Illoway thinks that tax break will generate jobs for the state. He says when trying to attract manufacturers Wyoming is now on par with other states. Illoway says increases to the Business Council's funding and funding for enhancing air travel will also help economic development in Wyoming.
