Evers Says Defunding State Law Agencies Won’t Happen

Governor Tony Evers said defunding law enforcement agencies in the state is not going to happen. Evers this week called for passage of legislation that would change use of force policies. A Madison group, “Freedom Inc.,” this week released a list of demands, which includes defunding of police. According to a Journal Sentinel report this week, over the past five years the state has awarded contracts and grants worth more than three and a half million dollars to the group, which advocates for minority and LGBTQ communities.
