The Wyoming State Government spending growth from 2000 to 2010 was one of the highest in the nation, at 61% according to the Tax Foundation. Couple this with the fact that new taxes are continually being introduced in legislature, and we can quickly see a trend.
In 2013 Wyoming legislature passed a $0.10 gas tax hike that promised to not show up at the pump, yet 1 week after July 1, 2013, we all saw the opposite had happened. The legislature also passed a lottery tax that did nothing more than pour money into the State coffers without replacing any taxes. In reality it just gave our State government the express permission to spend more.
As your representative, I would rather see the money we have in our community stay right where it belongs – at home, where it can address the challenges each of our communities see.
