CHEYENNE, Wyo. - Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal is recommending that the Legislature increase funding for the state Community College Commission by $3.4 million a year.
Jim Rose, executive director of the commission, tells the Cheyenne Tribune Eagle the proposal is reasonable.
Freudenthal's proposal will go before the Legislature's Joint Appropriations Committee, which will make a recommendation to the full Legislature.
The Legislature's next general session convenes Jan. 11.
The commission had requested a one-time appropriation of $6.8 million to cover the costs of increased enrollment.
The governor decided a smaller, recurring increase was more logical.
