Scholarships, Wildlife Issues Left to Resolve for Legislature

Cheyenne, WY – This is the final week that the state legislature is meeting in Cheyenne, and lawmakers still have their work cut out for them. Lawmakers will finish debate on the plan to give scholarships to high school graduates, on a proposal to revamp the education system and to fund projects benefiting wildlife. On top of that they will have to deal with the budget for state government. Already several lawmakers think they've spent too much. Representative Pete Jorgensen says he's surprised they were able to create a budget that costs two billion dollars per year. Others though are pleased with the work lawmakers have done, pointing out they will save close to a billion dollars in the next two years. This week leaders of the Senate and House will meet to come up with a final budget.
