Capitol Outlook – Week 5
Amid the hundreds of bills being debated at the Capitol, one towers above all others: the budget. In this case, it’s a is a supplementary budget making adjustments to the biennial budget passed last year — mostly cuts. And this is the week when the discussion gets serious, as the legislature debates the changes it has made to the Governor’s supplementary budget. We’ll cover the budgetary debate as lawmakers try to make the best use of the state’s dollars.
Our guests are two legislators who have guided the budget process in the Joint Appropriations Committee, Sen. Eli Bebout, chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee and Rep. Steve Harshman, chair of the House Appropriations Committee. We will also be joined by Greg Nickerson, statehouse reporter for Wyofile.
