Proposal for Resolution

Opposing ENDOW Commission Proposals 

Presented by the Lincoln County Republican Party

WHEREAS, Wyoming is currently in the midst of a budget shortfall of over $700 MILLION in the current biennium, and further encumbering state revenue would be irresponsible, and

WHEREAS, the Platform of the Wyoming Republican Party states: “Liberty is indivisible from economic freedom. The free market economy, is the economic system most compatible with the requirements of personal freedom and constitutional government. Government’s undue interference in the market, as well as the fiscal irresponsibility of government, results in economic inequity. There exists no fundamental right to the fruits of another person’s labor.”, and

WHEREAS, the Platform of the Wyoming Republican Party states: “All taxes collected must be used for the constitutional purposes of government. It is irresponsible to run up debts that are passed on to our children and grandchildren. Taxes should never be more than necessary.”, and

WHERAS, the Wyoming State Constitution prohibits the appropriation of money to any entity not under absolute control of the state, and

WHEREAS, central planning in any form is not compatible with free market economics and our republican form of government; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the Lincoln County Republican Party opposes the ENDOW/ WYDOT initiative known as Commercial Air Service Plan (CASP) which is meant to compete with commercial air service in serving a select few individuals at the expense of all Wyoming citizens.

RESOLVED, that the Lincoln County Republican Party opposes any and all additional expenditures by the ENDOW commission as those expenditures are utilized in the pursuit of central planning and are antithetical to the free market.
