Legislature gives UW 'standard' budget
March 11, 2020
LARAMIE — Barring any dramatic line-item vetoes from Gov. Mark Gordon, the University of Wyoming’s base support from the Legislature for the upcoming fiscal biennium will be essentially unchanged from its current status.
While there’s a dollar increase to account for inflation, the House and Senate voted Monday to finalize the budget bill with a “standard budget” for UW — meaning just enough for the university to maintain its current operations.
The Legislature sent the budget bill to Gordon’s desk with $175.4 million in base funding for each of UW’s next two fiscal years.
