Amy Edmonds breaks down the latest fiscal report by the Consensus Revenue Estimating Group, or CREG, what it means for the future of Wyoming, and what Governor Matt Mead and Wyoming's legislators should do about it.
Charlie Katebi spoke about to Glenn Woods on Boldrepublic.com about the problem with drawing people into a poorly run government program. Given the dearth of health care providers in Wyoming, any reduction to Medicaid reimbursements would likely limit health care access. And here the governor wanted to expand Medicaid! Thank goodness the legislature rejected Medicaid expansion.
Maureen Bader and John Birbari from KVOW Riverton Radio talk about the revenue shortfall and what the Revenue Committee may do about it. If those who think a government bloated by a decade of mineral tax revenue windfall get their way, grab your wallet and run for the hills!
The Wyoming budget was broken up into a number of parts. In addition to the general appropriations bill we also had the State Capital Construction Bill and the Local Government aid bills. None of these other bills have gone to the governor yet.
How has the entire budget changed as it moved through the budget session and how has that effected the rainy day fund raid and the need to steal from future generations?
Maureen Bader and Gary Freeman talk about the Wyoming Frugality Scorecard and whether Laramie County legislators voted for a bigger rainy day fund raid or to reduce the rainy day fund raid now in the Wyoming budget.
Will Wyoming legislators work to reduce the rainy day fund raid - or not? And what else about the amendment process creates concerns? Be sure to listen to find out.
