Legislative Action

Legislative Session Starts February 8, 2016

On February 8th,  the Wyoming Legislature will convene for the 2016 budget session. During the 20-day session, the Legislature will work on many issues, including impending revenue shortfalls. 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 School Finance Recalibration, 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.
