Governor Tony Evers signs the two-year state spending plan, but not before using his veto power on several provisions.
The governor’s vetoes include eliminating work requirements and drug testing for those who receive FoodShare benefits and investing over 100-million-dollars more in per-pupil funding for schools. Evers says the budget also delivers on his campaign promise of a ten-percent tax cut for working families.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers says he thought about vetoing the new state budget, but decided against it. The governor yesterday signed the new two-year, 81 billion-dollar spending plan, but in total the governor made 78 partial vetoes, including a change to spend more on education and to strike a carve-out for Tesla sales.
