Legislature comes to agreement on local government funding

A the end of last week, Wyoming State Legislature finally came to an agreement on fund distributions for counties, cities and towns. Law makers settled on setting aside $105 million for local governments. This is an increase of $15 million over the $90 million recommendation from the Joint Appropriations Committee. The formula favors communities without significant energy revenue. Read the full funding bill here. The bill now awaits Gov. Matt Mead's signature. #shortgo #buckrail #reboot #county10 #springcity #dally #oilcity #county17 #news
