Evers Reviewing Budget Changes
MADISON, WI (AP)—Gov. Tony Evers is reviewing last-minute changes to the state budget proposal being debated by the Republican-controlled Assembly.
Republicans are urging the Evers to sign the budget, which made several significant changes to what Evers had proposed. Democrats in the Assembly said Tuesday the budget doesn’t do enough to address issues facing the state like health care access, road funding and education.
But the Republican budget does increase funding for health care programs, K-12 schools and the University of Wisconsin and roads. But the funding does not go up as much as Evers proposed.
Evers’ spokeswoman Melissa Baldauff says the governor is reviewing a Republican amendment that makes last-minute changes to the budget. But she isn’t saying whether Evers plans to sign the plan with some vetoes or strike down the whole thing.
