Wyoming Homeland Security Funding Needed

Cheyenne, WY – Wyoming's Homeland Security Director isn't worried about any changes to how the federal government doles out Homeland Security funding. Joe Moore believes no matter what the set up, Wyoming will have enough money to continue improvings the capabilities of first responders. The state's $38.00 per capita level of funding has rankled many in larger states. But Moore doubts efforts to change the funding formula will result in Wyoming getting shortchanged. He notes there is additional funding available to big cities. Moore doesn't apologize of feel any guilt about Wyoming's large per capital share of homeland security money. He says the funding has paid for first responder upgrades that were needed.
