Wyoming’s Supplemental Budget topic of discussion on Wyoming PBS program Friday

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Amid the hundreds of bills being debated at the Capitol, one towers above all others: the budget. In this case, it’s 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.

This Friday at 7:30 p.m. on “Capitol Outlook”, Wyoming PBS producer Richard Ager hosts a conversation with legislative leaders focused on the budgetary debate as lawmakers try to make the best use of the state’s dollars.

Guests include 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. Wyofile statehouse reporter Greg Nickerson also joins the panel discussion.
