CHEYENNE – The Governor’s Efficiency Commission voted unanimously Friday to forward recommendations on to the Wyoming Legislature that members said would save the state about $85 million.

An additional $50 million might be saved after Gov. Mark Gordon approved the initiatives forwarded to him by state agencies. Two of the recommendations that include technology improvements for the Department of Revenue and Department of Transportation are forecast to provide savings and also generate revenue.

“I want to thank the consultant and state agencies that came together to highlight the great work that was already happening within state government,” Gordon said in a news release. “This is work that will help us operate more efficiently, improving services and saving taxpayer dollars. This effort will continue.”
