Congress Takes Wyoming Funds

Congress Takes Wyoming Funds

Gov. Matt Mead says he's upset with last week's vote in Congress cutting federal Abandoned Mine Land payments to the state.

Both houses of Congress voted last week to limit all states to $15 million a year of AML funding. That represents a major hit to Wyoming, the nation's largest coal-producing state, which is receiving roughly $150 million under the program this year.
