The legislative delegation from Sweetwater County met a 5 p.m. Thursday deadline to submit an amendment to the Wyoming legislature’s main budget bill requesting $5.3 million to fund phase I of the Bitter Creek Restoration Project. Rep. Clark Stith, R-Rock Springs, sponsored the amendment on the House side along with cosponsors Joann Dayton, D-Rock Springs, Rep. John Freeman, D-Green River and Stan Blake, D-Green River. A mirror image bill was simultaneously submitted by Sen. Anselmi-Dalton in the Wyoming Senate. To succeed, the amendment needs approval by both houses. The project has languished for years for lack of funding but is seen as a key element to long term development forbmuch of historic Rock Springs. Stay tuned.
