Schiffer Does Not Want To Raise Cap
Cheyenne, Wy – The Wyoming Association of Municipalities has been pushing to raise the cap on the main revenue stream where they get funding. They say it is because they have a desperate need for more revenue. But Senator John Schiffer of Kaycee thinks that is a bad idea. Schiffer, who co-chairs the appropriations committee, mainly opposes the move because if the cap were raised, other entities would also get additional money that he says they don't need. Among those, is the legislature. Schiffer will insist that local government come to the legislature with specific needs and ask for an appropriation. He says that way money can be spent where it is needed.
