Senator Ross urges cooperation


The Wyoming Senate President is urging cooperation after what he calls an ugly campaign season. 


Tony Ross of Cheyenne urged the Senate to work together and not let the public get cynical.  Ross says that’s important because this will be a difficult session with lots of important issues to address.


“Supplemental budget cuts, our response to the affordable care act, expansion of Medicaid, education accountability and a fuel tax just to name a few.  Many people are looking to the Senate to be THE body of reason and measure.”


Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Eli Bebout said that the state budget will be a key part of the session.  He says declining revenues means that the legislature should be mindful of the next decade and the decade after that.
