A bill that establishes a new large state loan program and also benefits a Cody business has passed the legislature.
The House made final touches to the bill that will give a $24-million state loan to Lannett Co. Inc., which is considering a nearly $100 million expansion of its Cody lab. In final debate, some in the House questioned the state giving such loans. Evansville Representative Kendall Kroeker says all businesses need loans.
The Mayor of Cody says residents in her community can expect to see budget cuts and a reduction of services following the failure of a one-percent sales tax which was intended to address infrastructure needs of Park County.
Mayor Nancy Tia Brown says her community will see some changes: “It was a time for the Cody voters or the county voters to let us know if they wanted to continue things as they were or make adjustments. And we are going to have to make some adjustments.”
