(Wyo.)-Day At The State Legislature
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Events on the 22nd day of 2013 General Session of the Wyoming Legislature: Wed., Feb. 6:
BUDGET BILL: Both houses of the Legislature considered amendments to the supplemental budget bill.
The House adopted an amendment sponsored by Rep. Donald Burkhart, R-Rawlins, that would decrease the amount of money that some school district employees would receive under an $8.1-million retention incentive payment program recommended by the Joint Appropriations Committee. The amendment would reduce the incentive payments by the same amount of any base salary increase a school district employee would receive under the state's existing pay raise program for educational employees. The Senate didn't adopt a similar amendment. If the amendment survives a final reading in the House, differences between the two bills will be worked out in conference committee.
CATTLE BRANDS: The Senate for the second time approved a House bill that would revise how cattle brands are recorded.
PUBLIC LANDS: The House for the third time endorsed a bill that would create a task force to look into possible transfer of federal lands to the state. The bill now heads to the Senate.
ARCHERY HUNTING: A Senate bill that would require a portion of big game hunting licenses to be set aside for archery hunting was introduced in the House and assigned to the House Travel, Recreation, Wildlife and Cultural Resources Committee.
