Legislative Session Starts January 13, 2015

On January 13th,  the Wyoming Legislature will convene for the 2015 general session. During the 40-day session, the Legislature will work on many issues, including external cost adjustments. The Governor has submitted his budget to the Joint Appropriations Committee, and they will bring their recommendations to the Legislature.

WEA has been active in following the issues that affect our members. President Vetter and I have attended meetings of the Select Committee on Statewide Education Accountability, Joint Education Committee, Joint Appropriations Committee, and others. We have worked with members of the Education Coalition to monitor these issues as well as to provide input.
