Now that it's been a month since Wyoming lawmakers wrapped up the budget session approving a $3.2 billion budget for the biennium, we figured we'd get Senator John Schiffer's take on how the budgeting process went this year.

While the redistricting bill didn't create any controversy during the session as some expected, it certainly has drawn the ire of a group of concerned citizens, as Gillette Attorney Nick Carter filed a lawsuit last week in Laramie County District Court in Cheyenne. The lawsuit filed on behalf of the citizens group claims that lawmakers made certain that incumbents wouldn't have to run against each other and that the less populated counties would not receive the proper representation.
