Earlier this week Wyoming State Representative Rosie Berger was a guest on News Talk 930 KROE'S Public Pulse program. When asked by host Kim Love about the State's financial picture, Berger responded by saying that things are actually looking pretty good.
Berger said that they are actually looking at changing policy on how some of the funding is appropriated.
Berger said that Governor Matt Mead had originally proposed a supplemental budget of $333 million, and that the Joint Appropriations Committee, which Berger is the Vice Chair of, is proposing a supplemental budget of $213 million. Berger did say that while their number is much lower than what the Governor proposed, they know that they have Medicaid obligations that they will have to deal with in the near future.
