Mead Postpones Office Building Plans

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead has put plans for a new state office building on hold in response to falling state revenue projections.

Mead wrote to state lawmakers Tuesday telling them he’s decided to exercise an option not to spend $4.4 million to plan for a new building in Cheyenne.

Mead’s decision likely delays the eventual renovation of the State Capitol because a new building would be needed to accommodate state workers and the Legislature. State lawmakers have warned that the Capitol needs improvements to its fire suppression system.

Mead says in his letter to lawmakers he’s concerned about the need to improve the Capitol. But he says a new building would be inappropriate while the state’s looking at cutting agency budgets up to 8 percent because of lower revenue projections.
