CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Three bills that would make changes to how K-12 schools are funded in Wyoming have failed introduction in the state House of Representatives.

Republican Rep. Mike Madden, of Buffalo, sponsored House Bills 90, 91 and 92, which all failed on Wednesday.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1V6ke6h ) that Madden says the bills would have cut transportation costs, changed the way school districts counted their average attendance each year and updated salaries for teachers and school staff.

Wyoming faces a projected $477 million revenue decrease over the next two years, and schools are bracing for expected cuts.
