CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A panel of Wyoming lawmakers is set to hear a briefing on state revenue projections that could shape state spending over the coming two years.
Legislative staffers are set to present updated state revenue projections to members of the Legislature's Joint Appropriations Committee Friday morning in Cheyenne.
The committee is hearing state agency budget requests this week and next. The committee will rely on the new revenue projections to make budget recommendations to the full Legislature in the session that starts next month.
The committee co-chairmen recently called on state agencies to prepare for budget cuts of up to 8 percent in the coming two-year budget cycle. Gov. Matt Mead has said he opposes such steep cuts and says the state should invest more in infrastructure and local governments.
