Wyoming statewide school construction shortfall may reach $205 million by 2022, report says

June 7, 2017View for printing

A state school construction funding shortfall, created as coal lease bonus money has dried up, could grow to more than $205 million by 2022, according to a legislative report.

More than $2 billion worth of construction and maintenance in Wyoming has been funded over the years through those bonuses, paid to Wyoming from the federal government. Roughly 100 schools were renovated or built during that time, and the state is now home to more than 22 million square feet of school facilities. Maintenance on those buildings costs at least $65 million annually, officials have said.
