Governor Matt Mead has signed the budget bill for the next two fiscal years. The Governor says the budget remains essentially flat while investing in Wyoming’s future. Governor Mead commended the members of the Legislature for the long hours they put into reviewing this budget. In particular, he applaud the Legislature for investing in cities, towns and counties, building the unified network – the interstate highway system of this era - and continuing to invest in education from kindergarten to our university and colleges.

Governor Mead said “while I am pleased with the budget, there are some areas where I have, after consultation with legislators, exercised my line item veto. In some instances, this was necessary to correct an unintended consequence or provide necessary flexibility.”
