Wyoming legislators travel to Hawaii; state employees told to curtail travel

The Billings Gazette reports today that more than two dozen Wyoming lawmakers who traveled to Hawaii last month for a conference are costing the state about $50,000.


Meanwhile, state employees are being told to eliminate out-of-state travel and curtail in-state travel. Budget cuts, you know. Austerity measures must be put in place. Time to tighten your belts, you free-loading state employees.

Meanwhile, Wyoming's current budget surplus is $50 million and growing.

You do the math.
