CASPER, Wyoming — A report says the state has spent $307 million over the past decade on a program to grow and diversify Wyoming's economy.

The report presented to the Joint Appropriations Committee this week in Casper says about 3,700 direct jobs have been or will be created as a result.

The lawmakers did not make any decisions after its review of the Business Ready Community Program, which is administered through the Wyoming Business Council.

Council CEO Shawn Reese says about 2,300 jobs have been created through the program and an additional 1,400 are projected with projects in the process of being completed,

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1xD6xDl ) that the program provides loans and grants to towns, cities, counties, tribes and others for public infrastructure, land and amenities in business parks.
