Governor Matt Mead Delivers State of the State speech

Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead said in his State of the State address yesterday that Wyoming is in good financial shape and getting stronger.

If the state of Wyoming were a stock for sale on the open market, Mead said he couldn’t think of a better investment.

The legislative session will last 20 days, and will focus on adopting a new state budget for the two-year fiscal period that starts July 1.

Mead’s budget recommendation calls for $3.33 billion in state general funds, up just slightly from the $3.31 in his proposed budget two years ago. He urged lawmakers to increase support for local governments, provide pay raises for most state workers and boost funding for security in courtrooms and schools.

Mead also said the state is starting to lose workers as their benefits fail to keep pace with inflation.
