Governor Signs State Budget With Vetoes

Governor Tony Evers has signed the 2020 state budget, with a series of vetoes. Republicans had sent the Governor a budget that was far below the spending he requested in February, but Evers says there’s still room for tax cuts for Wisconsin families, along with increases in spending.

“When combined with prior reductions 2.4 million filers will be receiving tax relief in Wisconsin.

The Governor also cut a number of policy decisions the GOP added to the budget, including a cut in spending for the lieutenant Governor’s security detail, as well as a proposed drug testing requirement to get unemployment insurance.
