Wyoming School Budget Cuts

The state of Wyoming has more than 20 billion dollars in funds, and the state’s treasurer announced a billion dollar investment growth last year.

But lawmakers are working on a plan to cut education funding, and jobs.

The topic of discussion for Wyoming lawmakers meeting in Cheyenne soon will be class size.

Representative David Northrup of Powell says if they follow a consultant’s recommendations to increase class sizes, the state could save more than $70 million dollars a year.

State Senator Hank Coe of Cody agrees.
