The 67th Wyoming Legislature began its first day of the 2024 Budget Session with a joint session on Monday. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter reported that Miss Wyoming USA Beck Bridger sang the National Anthem to open the session.
During his State of the State Address, Governor Mark Gordon highlighted Wyoming’s strong economy and emphasized the importance of passing a conservative budget that keeps general fund spending flat when compared to 2021. He also discussed his proposed budget, which includes significant needs like property tax relief, targeting those truly in need.
Gordon urged legislators to be mindful of the potential impacts to county resources, roads, and schools when considering legislation that addresses high property taxes. He also addressed education, mental health, and border security in his address. We will have more from Gordon’s State of the State in future stories.
