When I was six years old my family moved to Riverton WY. My Dad's job required our family to relocate several times until we settled in Gillette. I graduated from Campbell County High School in 1978. When I was nineteen years old I started working as a coal miner at Amax Coal Company. I worked for 39 years in the PRB as a heavy equipment operator loading haul trucks with one of the largest loaders in the world. On July 1st 2019 Blackjewel I was laid off, locked out and ripped off along with 600 of my co-workers. I've spent the year since that event researching not just the decline of coal, but the related social, environmental and economic issues facing Wyoming. We need realistic discussions and I am ready to serve my district and my state
I would ask for a reprieve on the current bugd
Wyoming's revenue issues are not temporary or new. They have been emblematic of Wyoming's volatile economy for decades. All options must be on the table if we are to address the severe revenue issues facing the state. We must ensure that the policies Wyoming employs address the current economic crisis and do not compound and entrench the issues which have plagued Wyoming for decades. The economic approaches of the past can no longer be relied upon to secure economic stability for Wyoming's future. It should be clear that Wyoming cannot cut it's way out of this crisis. We cannot continue with a "business as usual" approach to our economy. Ignoring the reality of new revenue streams like a corporate or state income tax is not realistic.
My community is experiencing massive layoffs due to the decline of coal and the price of oil. It is my understanding If Wyoming expands Medicaid, an additional 27,000 who will be newly eligible for the program will enroll. Medicaid expansion would provide health insurance to thousands of residents, and the programs reimbursements would prevent hospitals from sinking further into debt due to patients inability to pay. Thirty-six states have expanded Medicaid, either by legislative action or voter-led ballot initiatives. Wyoming is a state that refuses to budge no matter how much money they lose or who goes without help. I fully support Medicaid expansion and I believe Wyoming has to use all of our resources to protect the citizens of Wyoming
