The Joint Interim Revenue Committee met in Lander on May 2nd and 3rd to discuss ways to enhance Wyoming's revenue streams. Facing approximately $200 million a year in education funding shortfall, the committee is charged with coming up with stable revenue streams for funding schools and other areas of state government.
Bills discussed at this meeting include several addressing regulations and taxes on vaping products, increased property taxes to go to schools, taxing corporate income on "big box stores," a wind tax, and the unspeakable --- an income tax. The committee will continue to work on these issues during the interim, with the next meeting scheduled for July 8th and 9th in Cheyenne. Check back here for updates as the interim work progresses!
