Assembly Passes Two-Year Budget

It took most of the night to do it, but the State Assembly has passed the next two-year budget, and now it’s up to the State Senate to approve it.

The plan passed on a 64-34 vote. Included in the new budget plan is a $3.3 billion income and property tax cut. The plan Governor Evers proposed would also have given K-12 schools $1.6 billion, but Republicans handed out $128 million.

Governor Evers will eventually see the plan on his desk, and he’ll have the option of accepting it, vetoing it, or rewriting the bill entirely.

The Senate is expected to take up the budget plan on Wednesday. (6/30/21)
