(Wyo.)- Wyoming Considering Boosting Airline Incentives
Wyoming lawmakers are considering more than doubling spending on an incentive program for airlines that fly out of the state.
The state's Air Transportation Liaison Committee last week approved a proposal to increase the incentive fund from $1.5 million to $4 million a year. The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports Friday that two other legislative committees will be reviewing the proposal in the coming months.
The program provides revenue guarantees and other help to airlines.
Wyoming has spent about $21 million on the program since 2004. Airlines that operate out of Jackson, Gillette, Rock Springs, and Cody are getting the incentives now.
Gov. Matt Mead has said he supports the incentives.
