Geis: State budget good considering shortfall


March 5, 2016

Wyoming Governor Matt Mead signed the new biennium budget into law Thursday, with a few line item vetoes that were mostly overridden by the Senate.

Sen. Gerald Geis (R-Worland) said “We did as good as we could do with the shortfall. I don’t think the shortfall is over. We may have to redo some of the budget next year with the continual drop in oil and natural gas prices. We’ve got to get a little more diversified.” He added that he doesn’t think agriculture gets enough credit for helping the state with tourism, including helping feed wildlife and ensuring some open spaces.
