Wyoming Governor Line-Item Vetoes 29 Budget Items

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon late Tuesday afternoon announced line-item vetoes of 29 items in the supplemental budget passed by Wyoming lawmakers earlier in the 2019 Legislative Session.

The governor outlines the items being vetoed and his rationale for doing so in a letter to the Wyoming House of Representatives (see below). In response to the vetoes, Wyoming House Speaker Steve Harshman said the House would take up any veto override attempts today [Wednesday].

The speaker also said there is a chance lawmakers may reconvene early next week to continue the process of over-riding vetoes. Today is scheduled to be the last day of the 2019 session, but lawmakers still have five more days available in the session, if needed.
