Governor-elect Tony Evers says he will follow new laws curbing his powers. Evers indicated this yesterday, only a day after saying he would not do so. The incoming Democratic governor said he thinks he would be sued by those trying to force him to follow the laws if he rebelled against them. Lawsuits challenging the provisions are expected.
MEANWHILE, Governor-elect Tony Evers is filling out his cabinet. Former Obama official Andrea Palm will serve as health secretary. State Representative Peter Barca is set to be revenue secretary and state Senator Caleb Frostman will be workforce development secretary. Former aide Emilie Amundson will serve as Department of Children and Families secretary and Evers is giving the job of schools superintendent to longtime Madison educator Carolyn Stanford Taylor.
