Wyoming is blessed with a Constitutional requirement that we have a balanced budget. We must make hard choices, more cuts are likely.

The Department Of Revenue

Unlike most, this department generates more money than it spends. Cutting this department’s budget can actually cost the state money. We must be smart about how we cut the budget.

Transparency

The Wyoming budget and revenue streams are more complicated than I would like. The legislature should seek opportunities to minimize that complexity so that voters can comprehend how our state runs.

Santa Vs. The Grinch

Bringing the budget in line with available revenue is a challenge. How much government can we afford? Agencies must prioritize and streamline. More cuts are likely.
