GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials say entire programs may be in jeopardy in 2015 because of a lack of funding.

Game and Fish Commissioner Aaron Clark says the state Game and Fish Commission and department officials want to hear public comment when considering those decisions.

Department officials had asked the Legislature for fee increases to continue current services, but their request was denied.

On Wednesday, the Game and Fish Commission gave preliminary approval to about $7 million worth of cuts to the agency’s 2014 budget.

Clark tells the Associated Press that most of the 2014 cuts are internal and the public shouldn’t notice them.

The commission will take a final vote on the 2014 budget at its July meeting while it continues working on proposed 2015 cuts.
