Governor: 2012 Was Significant Year for Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Over the last year Wyoming saw a record wildfire season, construction begin on a data center that could usher in further economic diversification and the public helping to build the foundation for a Wyoming energy strategy. This was Governor Matt Mead’s second year in office.

Looking ahead to 2013 Governor Mead has proposed a budget that can position Wyoming well for the future.

Governor Mead also pointed to strides in making state government more efficient. This included the completion of the consolidation of the Departments of Workforce Services and Employment into one agency. Also, in 2012 state Information Technology services were consolidated into one agency. This saved over $1,000,000 and reduced the size of government by 14 positions.

This was also the year that Wyoming took over management of wolves.

Attached is audio from Governor Mead.
