Matt Mead on Families & Children
Fund Boys' School; elderly-at-home; & Life Resource Center
We should not put off till tomorrow these things that can be done today. Therefore, I recommend funding for:
The health recommendations are geared to improving access to care, prevention and more effective
care, as well as allowing the elderly to stay in their homes longer. With respect to the State Hospital, Wyoming Life Resource Center, Veterans' Home and the Boys' School, these facilities do not have big constituencies or lobbying power to pound on
the door to ask for resources. But our state has taken on the responsibility of having them.
- courthouse security,
- juvenile justice,
- school safety,
- reducing developmental disabilities wait lists,
- health programs, medical
homes, aging and disability resource centers, 2-1-1, and immunization, and
- the Life Resource Center, State Hospital, Veterans' Home and Boys' School.
Where our state has stepped in, we have to step up and provide good care and good facilities. That's the Wyoming way. And my budget provides for them.
