Critics are questioning the Governor’s partial vetoes on the state budget.
Democratic Governor Tony Evers made 78 partial vetoes to the state budget which was passed by the Republican controlled state Legislature before he put his signature on it.
With those vetoes, he was able to allocate 87-million-dollars more to spend on K-12 school district aid than Republicans wanted. That move has left some people feeling uncomfortable with the amount of power Evers has with his veto pen.
But, Evers remains firm in his stance that his vetoes and adjustments to the budget reflect the people’s interests.
