More Cuts To Wyoming Game & Fish?
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Game and Fish Department Director Scott Talbott says the agency faces another round of budget cuts unless lawmakers increase its funding.
Talbott told a legislative committee Wednesday that the agency will have to slash $1.5 million to $2 million from its fiscal year 2014-15 budget if nothing is done.
The Associated Press that the cut would be on top of a $2 million reduction put in place in fiscal year 2012-13 and a $4.6 million cut that is being finalized for fiscal year 2013-14.
Talbott says jobs or key services could be purged if more cuts are needed. But he added that many low-priority services already have been cut.
A proposal to raise agency fees was rejected in the 2013 Legislature.
