Budget compromise approved

Feb 15, 2013 - The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- Both Houses of the Wyoming Legislature have voted to approve the supplemental budget bill.

House Speaker Tom Lubnau, a Gillette Republican, and Senate President Tony Ross, a Republican from Cheyenne, said Friday that that the budget bill should go to Gov. Matt Mead for his consideration on Tuesday.

The supplemental budget calls for spending roughly an additional $78 million on top of the $3.2 billion state funds budget lawmakers approved last year for the biennium that runs through mid-2014.
