Kinskey on Educational Funding

As the Wyoming Legislature works to find solutions to the $400 million deficit in the state’s educational funding, State Senator Dave Kinskey credits actions by the state’s Supreme Court in past years as making the legislators efforts even more difficult…

Those court decisions came as a result of economic disparity between energy rich counties and the rest of the state.
Now, due to the court’s rulings, certain items in the so-called “basket of goods” are “off limits” to the legislative efforts to resolve the budget shortfall…

It appears that transportation cuts, increasing class sizes, and of course taxation are all under consideration.
SF114 is the educational reform bill making its way through the Senate while the House is considering similar legislative options.
