WyDOT Relatively Pleased With Highway Funding Bill

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Department of Transportation officials say they’re pleased with the just-approved federal transportation bill that keeps highway funding for the state relatively level.

WyDOT chief engineer Del McOmie says the state highway agency had been bracing for the possibility of federal cuts. That would have further strained an already tight budget.

McOmie says the law signed by President Barack Obama on Friday isn’t perfect, as it’s only a 27-month extension for highway funding. Past bills have covered six years of funding.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/MR6nSf) the highway funding bill is expected to maintain Wyoming’s $244 million annual share of federal highway funding.

Wyoming is among the states most dependent on federal dollars for highway funds.
