Wyoming House

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming House and Senate have passed parallel budget bills spelling out their respective visions of how to fund state government over the next two years.

Both bills call for roughly $3.2 billion in spending for the period starting in July.

Differences between the bills that will have to be resolved in conference committee.

Among the differences is a $3.2-million amendment approved in the Senate but not in the House. It would fund additional funding for treatment of people who suffer from acquired brain injuries or developmental disabilities.

Sen. Charles Scott, a Casper Republican, is chairman of the Senate Labor, Health and Social Services Committee. He says he’s pleased the Senate approved the funding and says it’s critical to cut waiting periods for people who need those services.
