The Wyoming Department of Transportation may be one of the state agencies that benefits from the better than expected earnings Wyoming brought in this fiscal year. The state’s general fund is about $333 million over what the Consensus Revenue Estimating Group, or CREG, predicted.
Governor Matt Mead says he’s gone through WYDOT’s budget once, but may review it again.
The Consensus Revenue estimating group came out with projections that lawmakers will have about 85 million more dollars to spend this session. The CREG report is main tool government officials use to forecast how much money the state will have. Governor Matt Mead joins Bob Beck to discuss the report and the impact it has on his budget as he prepares to present it in December.
