UW President goes before legislature

Cheyenne, WY – The University of Wyoming will take its proposed budget before the legislature's Joint Appropriations Committee today.

UW President Tom Buchanan says the top priority is library funding.

UW wants nearly $19 million for acquisitions and technology. Buchanan says the price tag is high because UW had other priorities when the state was short of cash in the 1990s.

Community colleges will also present their budget requests to the JAC.
