    Chip Neiman, Representative|Mar 7, 2024

    The Wyoming Legislature is heading into the fourth and final week of the Budget Session. The biggest lift is still ahead: reaching a budget agreement between the House and Senate. After both chambers finalized our respective budgets at the end of week two, it became clear that there are big differences between the two bills – both in dollar value and priorities. The House and Senate bills are separated by about $1.1 billion, the largest divide that I have seen during my time in the L...

Some people think that red-skinned, long sweet potatoes are yams, but they surely are just one of many varieties of sweet potatoes. Sweet Potatoes vs. Yams “Sweet potato” and “yam” are often synonyms in recipes and at the market. They are two different...
