The Wyoming Business Council is making a case for more money so it can help attract companies to the state and promote other economic development efforts.
According to information released by The Associated Press, the business council is seeking almost a $34.5 million general fund budget increase for the upcoming two-year budget cycle.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that the organization wants to boost funding for the Business Ready Communities program, the Community Facilities program and the Community Development Block Grant Program.
The agency's budget request is in the process of being reviewed by Gov. Matt Mead, who is expected to release his recommendations by Dec. 1.
The Legislature would have to approve the budget when it meets next year.
