Wyoming Legislature Won’t Try Veto Override

Karen Snyder, K2 Radio

Wyoming legislative leaders say they won’t try to override Gov. Matt Mead’s vetoes of some sections of the state budget bill.

House Speaker Tom Lubnau and Senate President Tony Ross, a Republican from Cheyenne, both said Friday they won’t push to override the governor’s line-item vetoes. They say they’re generally satisfied with the budget bill.

Mead on Thursday vetoed a provision requiring most state agencies to propose budget reductions of 4, 6 and 8 percent for the coming two-year spending cycle. Mead stated it doesn’t make to plan for specific levels of cuts before state budget analysts release their revenue projections.

Mead also vetoed language limiting state spending on wildfires to about $37 million. His action would allow spending over up to $60 million.
