CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — State lawmakers are moving ahead with plans to build a new state office building and renovate the state Capitol in Cheyenne despite opposition by Gov. Matt Mead.

Mead says now’s not the time to build a new office building while the state faces budget cuts due to low prices for natural gas and falling state revenues.

The Associated Press reports  the new state office building would be located near the Capitol and cost an estimated $80 million. The next state budget includes $4.4 million to design the building.

The Capitol would be renovated after the building is built. State employees in the Capitol would be moved into the new building to facilitate the renovations.

A legislative subcommittee voted last week in favor of proceeding with the project.
