Lawmakers in Madison may finally get the answer as to where Governor Tony Evers plans to get the extra one-billion-dollars that he is planning to spend in his new state budget.
The governor will deliver his budget address later tonight. He’s spent the past two weeks previewing his plan and outlining how he’d spend more than a billion-dollars on new programs. CJ Szafir, with the Institute for Reforming Government, says no one knows just where the governor is looking to get all of that new money. He says spending the state’s rainy day fund and/or raising taxes is a bad idea.
