1) The Wyoming Air Service Improvement Council is working on a plan to attract more airlines to the state. Wyoming would offer a minimum revenue guarantee, so if the airline didn’t make enough money, the state would provide a subsidy. Some say tax dollars should not be given to airlines to provide air service. Others believe Wyoming would not get commercial air service without it.
Should the state subsidize airlines in order to bring flights to Wyoming?
2) The Legislative Service Office says rebuilding dormitories at the University of Wyoming should be paid for by the state. Some lawmakers are suggesting a public-private partnership, with a private developer building the dorms, and making up the cost by charging students for room and board. The LSO says quality might suffer, because a private developer will want to cut costs to maximize profits.
Should new dorms be paid for by the state, or through a public-private partnership?
