In late October, Gov. Mark Gordon’s office predicted a general fund shortfall of $451.1 million and a school funding shortfall of $300 million, reflecting a historic downturn in Wyoming’s economy.

This summer, the governor implemented an initial round of selective 10% cuts, and has asked agencies to consider further cuts approaching 10%. Wyoming’s savings will not be able to offset the state’s cuts in the long term, he said.
