Taxes pay for our schools and education system in Wyoming. Do people understand that?
I don't see why the idea of a slight increase in sales taxes, temporarily, to make sure there is enough money for education until the economy bounces back is considered so radical in the Wyoming Legislature.
If we were just getting started as a state in 2017, IR00;wonder if there would be a public education system at all. It takes public taxes to pay for it, and our legislators probably wouldn't vote for it.
I feel very strongly that if the Legislature doesn't pass some kind of sall tax to pay for schools this year, it will be inevitable to do it next year.
