Gains for Wyo. in revenue forecast

CHEYENNE – Wyoming’s latest revenue forecast is better than it’s been in the last two years, but there’s still a long way to go before the state returns to levels preceding the latest economic downturn.

The Consensus Revenue Estimating Group, or CREG, puts out reports in October and January each year so Wyoming policymakers have a common set of numbers to work off when developing budgets and making other legislative decisions.

On Tuesday, CREG released its latest set of revenue forecasts, which should give Wyomingites reason for moderate optimism in coming years.
