In the background of Wyoming’s independent Western ethos is the fact that the state gets billions in support from federal funds.
WyoFile’s Legislature 2013 is a special project examining the many critical fiscal and social policy decisions being made in preparation for the upcoming session that begins January 8, 2013. WyoFile reporter Gregory Nickerson and longtime Wyoming journalist Geoff O’Gara have teamed up to bring you weekly feature reports on the run-up to the session as state leaders prepare to cut the budget by 8 percent.
By reporting on and closely examining legislative maneuvering now, we hope that Wyoming citizens can find a seat at the table before the Legislative session begins and make their voices heard. Come to WyoFile each Tuesday between now and January 8 for the most comprehensive reporting and analysis on the Wyoming Legislature, and take part in the ongoing discussions.
