About WEDA's advocacy
The Wyoming Economic Development Association advocates for policies that foster economic growth and resiliency in Wyoming. WEDA is the voice for local economic developers as well as communities and organizations with economic development goals.
These priorities will be the basis of WEDA's advocacy and lobbying during the 67th Wyoming Legislature.

2023 Position Statements
- WEDA joins the coalition of our Wyoming housing partners to ask the Joint Appropriations Committee (JAC) to reconsider allocating $15 million of ARPA funds to the Unmet Housing Needs project. The limited availability of workforce and affordable housing is a constraint to economic growth in Wyoming. The Governor’s request is a vital first step to giving our communities this needed support.

How WEDA takes a position
WEDA has a process to determine the Association's stance on a bill or issue. Any WEDA member can submit a position request to Sara DiRienzo, Executive Director.
This process was adopted by the WEDA Board on Jan. 2, 2023.
