Wyoming leaders must oppose a federal bailout of the states

Seven months ago, it looked like it could be a good year for Wyoming’s economic competitiveness. Wyoming is a unique state as we have a strong policy foundation, but we encounter major issues that arise, such as natural gas prices hitting a record low this year. In the last year, though, we made several great moves to promote fiscal restraint and responsible spending, which advanced good policy fundamentals.

In fact, in August it was announced that we ranked the second best state for economic outlook in the annual ALEC report, Rich States, Poor States, improving by eight rankings, due to free market policies that return hard earned dollars to the people of Wyoming rather than putting them in government coffers.
