Wyoming Could Survive Some Budget Cuts

Laramie, Wy – Budget cuts last week by the U-S House of Representatives will mean some budget problems for many states especially in Medicaid. But in Wyoming officials are keeping their fingers crossed. The Deputy Director of Administration for the Wyoming Department of Health is Leland Clabots. He says Wyoming's plan does not have a lot of the add-on programs that Congress targeted with cuts.
So, Clabots does remain optimistic. However, last week Governor Dave Freudenthal expected some of the federal cuts to impact some other budgets in the state. He says the Legislature would need to consider making up some of those cuts
