Budget Bill Signed By Governor Matt Mead

Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead has signed the $3.3-billion budget bill that will cover state funding for the coming two years.

Mead made only minor line-item vetoes to the bill. House Speaker Tom Lubnau, a Gillette Republican, says he doesn’t expect lawmakers will push to override any vetoes.

In a prepared statement, Mead commended lawmakers for their work on the budget, saying the state remains fiscally conservative and well positioned for the future.

The budget bill includes a little less than $80 million for state employee salary increases. Executive branch employees and workers at the University of Wyoming would see raises averaging about 2.4 percent a year. Employees in the state’s K-12 school system will see slightly lower raises.

The budget bill also calls for $175 million in payments to local governments.
