State Senator Dave Kinskey (R-Sheridan, Johnson Counties) spoke with Sheridan Media this week from the legislative session and talked about the supplemental budget, and what lawmakers are considering for the state’s additional revenue.

He was asked how he sees the legislature in spending versus saving the extra funds.

Kinskey said he thinks the legislature will work toward a “meeting in the middle” of spending some and saving some.

The legislature, according to Kinskey, seems to be more conservative in their thinking as far as spending and saving goes.

We will have more from State Senator Kinskey in upcoming stories.

    Kinskey (among others) need to be voted out of office..Wyoming needs new legislative leadership because it IS too conservative…I find it interesting that the Wyoming legislature stands firm with anti-abortion law but at the same time refuses to expand Medicaid which would benefit the well being of our mothers and their children who are affected by ultra right wing anti-abortion conservative law. In another example the so called “conservative” Wyoming legislature fought against the affordable health care (ACA) reform “tooth and nail” for years…today the ACA has improved the health and well being for millions upon millions of American citizens including Wyoming citizens.

    I hope that we haven’t forgotten that our state was in the RED not too long ago. Could it happen again? Maybe or maybe not however, if it does we will need to draw from our reserve funds. I hope that the funds will be there for the rainy day. I also believe that we do need Medicare for our citizens and we should be getting funds from the Federal Government for help. We do need to start thinking Long Term in this country if we are to have a positive future for our children. How can we defend against external threats from abroad when our country is trillions of dollars in the RED & our enemies are billions of dollars in the BLACK. We’ve got to Wake Up as a Country & start dealing with REAL problems & Solutions.

      as for that “rainy day fund”…?…according to The Cowboy State Daily (January 22,2023) the state of Wyoming lost 100 million dollars in coal revenue in 2022 because there were not enough “trains” (locomotives, coal cars and crews) to move the needed coal out of Wyoming to the power plants…so the power plants used more expensive natural gas…how is that for the governors office and legislators giving lip service but not following through with a solution to the problem
