Wyoming bill would raise daily expense money for lawmakers

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – A bill to increase the money allotted to cover the daily expenses of Wyoming state lawmakers has been filed for the state’s 2020 legislative session.

KGAB-AM reports the bill would increase the allowance for expenses such as meals and lodging from $109 to $151 daily.

The legislation would also direct the Wyoming Auditor’s Office to adjust the per diem rate every July 1 in accordance with the standard set by the U.S. General Services Administration.

A fiscal note attached to the bill says the anticipated cost is about $266,000 for fiscal year 2021 and $225,000 for fiscal year 2022.
