The State of Wyoming and its people have long valued Liberty, self-reliance & conservative values. The Republican Party, from the National to State and to County, in their platforms and resolutions has long called for fiscal conservatism.
Whereas since 2000, Wyoming has had unprecedented growth in government, making Wyoming the #1 state in the ratio of government employees per capita; and
Whereas the current economy can no longer sustain the fiscal irresponsibility of our State Government; and
Whereas the State Legislature has recently raised fees & licenses and is discussing creating new revenue enhancements and tax increases; and
Whereas Wyoming’s economy & business climate has put a strain on the remaining citizens personal budgets; and
Whereas the State Republican Platform states: “Liberty is indivisible from economic freedom. The free market economy is the economic system most compatible with the requirements of personal freedom and constitutional government. Government’s undue interference in the market, as well as the fiscal irresponsibility of government, results in economic inequity. There exists no fundamental right to the fruits of another person’s labor”; and
Be it resolved that the Wyoming Republican Party calls upon the State Legislature and the Governor to practice fiscal restraint, reign in spending and cut unnecessary budget items rather than increasing revenue streams.
Hereby passed by the Wyoming Republican Party on 12
