Wyoming legislators advance bills to cut $16 million from schools, add computer science
from Casper Star-Tribune Online
Lawmakers advanced one bill to cut roughly $16 million from Wyoming schools and another to add computer science to the educational program Tuesday in what was almost certainly the last Joint Education Committee meeting for the next several months. The meeting — which also saw lawmakers shoot down two bills — brings to a close an arduous interim for one of the several committees working to solve the state's education funding crisis. Though the shortfall facing Wyoming's schools has lessened significantly compared to this time last year, the hole is still more than $340 million for day-to-day operations alone for the 2019 and 2020 fiscal years.
